M2MCombo™ 802.11n 1x1, Dual-mode BT 4.0, ZigBee


RS9113 is Redpine Signals’ ultra-low-power, single spatial stream, dual-band 802.11n + BT4.0 +ZigBee Convergence SoC. The RS9113 chipset provides low-cost CMOS integration of a multi-threaded MAC processor, baseband digital signal processing, analog front-end, crystal oscillator, calibration OTP, dual-band RF transceiver and dual-band high-power amplifiers, making it the ideal device for universal M2M communications applications.

As a convergence device, the RS9113 maintains connections on some or all interfaces – Wi-Fi, BT 2.1+EDR, BT 3.0, BT 4.0, and ZigBee – presenting a virtual simultaneous multi-protocol connectivity – a key feature to create a device which can be used and deployed in legacy and new wireless environments. A gateway device implemented with RS9113 could communicate with a medical sensor with single mode BT 4.0 connectivity, and a smartphone with BT 4.0/Wi-Fi or HVAC device with ZigBee connectivity.
