LPRS (Witney, UK) offers Internet of Things (IoT) system builders a system-on-chip fully integrated wireless controller suitable for remote, battery powered sensor systems, which can offer current consumption as low as 32 µA. The high security easyRadio Integrated Controller (eRIC) offers designers seven power saving modes of operation to ensure maximum battery life of remote sensors. The LPRS eRIC transceiver power saving modes provide control of the duty cycle of the receiver so that the ‘ON’ time can be set to 12.5, 6.25, 3.1, 1.56, 0.78, 0.39 and 0.2 percent with corresponding levels of power saving from its “always on” current of 16 mA. The transmitter may then be independently set to the same duty cycle as the receiver or longer as required for transfer of data. Up to 25 0Byte data-packets are supported throughout all operating modes and up to 500 Kbs over air data rates are available. Other advanced features are available as standard including:
- Received signal strength indicator (RSSI).
- Carrier detect.
- Group ID.
