Realtek’s RTL8195AM Low Power Wi-Fi IoT SoC Wins Best Choice Golden Award at COMPUTEX 2015
May 28, 2015
HSINCHU, Taiwan – May 28, 2015 – Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, announced today that its RTL8195AM, a low power Wi-Fi IoT SoC, has won the Best Choice Golden Award at COMPUTEX 2015.
The RTL8195AM is a dedicated and highly integrated SoC designed by Realtek for the IoT market. This SoC integrates Wi-Fi, MCU, high-speed interface (USB and SDIO), serial interface (SPI, UART, and I2C), and analog interface (ADC and DAC). The RTL8195AM is the world’s first low-power Wi-Fi IoT SoC to implement Ethernet and NFC.
To satisfy green power requests, Realtek employed new low-power architecture with an ultra-low leak process. Additionally, open and lightweight protocols are implemented in the SoC to allow very low power consumption in different modes. This technology has reduced average power consumption to 1/10 of that found in a conventional Wi-Fi solution. The low-power design is perfectly suited to battery-powered applications, and fully complies with green appliance regulations.
“We are very pleased to have won the Best Choice Golden Award at COMPUTEX 2015 and are excited to have this opportunity to showcase Realtek’s advanced capabilities in the IoT Market”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang. “IoT is said to be the fourth industry revolution and is expected to become ubiquitous over the next few years. With an open platform, full IoT protocols, low-power design, and a great user experience, the Realtek RTL8195AM is the leader in low-power Wi-Fi IoT solutions. In addition to the award winning RTL8195AM, the Realtek RTL8711AM and RTL8711AF series of IoT SoCs have earned accolades from customers, enabling consumer electronic product designers to add differentiating features in varying applications”.
