Rockchiphaslaunched thenew lowpower Wi-Fi technology, the Rockchip RKi6000. The RKi6000 is ultra-low power Wi-Fi and memory technology that greatly reduces power consumption of IoT smart devices by 85 percent, advancing the widespread adoption of IoT in everyday products and appliances by providing more efficient power, a lower price, smaller size, and the ability to use Wi-Fi for the development of IoT devices.
The Rockchip RKi6000 SoC processor technology sets anew standardfor Wi-Fi, with power consumption now equal tothat of Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), with receiving power consumption around 20 mAh during use, 85 percent lowerthan standard Wi-Fi built with RF architecture. When compared with the Bluetooth/ZIGBEE standard,Wi-Fi is more convenient to use with the easy Internet connection provided by the standard Wi-Fi infrastructure, but because of its high power requirements, Wi-Fi was previously unable to be incorporated into portable devices with an electrical current limit. The RKi6000s on-chip processor and memory technology resolves this power issue, reducing power consumption to make Wi-Fi equal toBluetooth LE, advancing the adoption of IoT devices by breaking Wi-Fis power consumption bottleneck.
Jointly developed with Rockchips third party partner, Rockchip allows IoT devices power consumption, size, and cost to be greatly reduced, allowing for faster time to market and a smaller, more efficient cost-effective design. Rockchips technology also allows IoT devices to use a coin battery. In addition, AAA batteries can be used for up to 35 years, while competitors technologies (such as Atmel) provide only a maximum of 10 years of use for AAA batteries. The RKi6000 allows Wi-Fi based smart product design in a variety of markets, including wearable, consumer electronics, mainstream home appliances, home safety, automation systems, automobilesand medical equipment
The RKi6000 achieves ultra-low power consumption through improvements in wireless communication and radio-frequency architecture:.Rockchips patented technology greatly reduces an IoT smart devices power consumption by receiving and transmitting data continuously, enabling devices to achieve ultra-low power consumption while in standby and in use.
Adaptive dynamic power control technologyimproves power efficiency in different working modes, reducing all-over power consumption in different application scenarios and adjusting the chips power configuration according to data transmission requirements and actual transmission quality, achieving the best energy efficiency ratio.
For IoT applications requiring long standby times while remaining online, the Rockchip RKi6000 maintains its Wi-FI connection without waking up the main-control processor, simplifying the power consumption systems design and extending battery life.
