Multi-protocol Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth solutions deliver lowest power consumption

The results of a new Tolly Group Test Report shows that the Redpine’s RS9116 and RS14100 multi-protocol Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth solutions deliver dramatically lower power consumption than competing solutions from Cypress, Qualcomm, and TI, and enable up to three years of battery life for smart lock applications and other IoT devices. The tests performed by the Tolly Group included Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) scenarios and benchmarked power consumption in Wi-Fi Standby Associated Mode, while running a secure TCP stack (with and without co-channel traffic) and in a multi- protocol scenario using Bluetooth Low Energy. In every test scenario, the power consumption of the Redpine solutions was dramatically lower than the competition, delivering up to 25x lower power in Wi-Fi standby associated tests, up to 22x lower power in Wi-Fi TCP + TLS tests, and up to 15x lower power in multi-protocol Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth Low Energy tests.
