Redpine's Wireless MCU SoCs were tested to evaluate interoperability and power consumption by connecting securely across 100 popular wireless routers. Robust secure connectivity and interoperability were observed with zero Wi-Fi disconnects, zero TCP disconnects, and 100% reception of application messages. The SoCs displayed ultra low-power consumption with clean channel average of only 113uA across all 100 routers.

Redpine has also produced the industry's smallest modules - 4.63mm x 7.90 mm with Wi-Fi, Dual Mode BT 5, and MCU. Our WiFi + BT modules have exhibited the highest output power of 18dBm for BLE 5 with lowest power Bluetooth music streaming.

  • Redpine MCUs have high-performance and low power MCU operation modes with power as low as 19 uA/MHz.
  • Redpine Microcontrollers have 180 MHz Cortex-M4F with DSP co-processors and a rich set of analog and digital peripherals.

Our embedded connectivity modules have industry's leading throughput of ~90 Mbps for an embedded 11n solution (40 MHz BW, TCP bypass) - ~40 Mbps internal TCP + TLS over LAN (<10ms RTT) with 20 MHz; ~10Mbps internal TCP+TLS over WAN link (>50ms RTT) with 20 MHz

FIPS 140-2 are specific security requirements for wireless modules, and are provided by the US National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST). This NIST standard is recognized by US, Canada, and European Union.

Our 9113 Wi-Fi modules were the industry's first FIPS 140-2 certified wireless modules. These modules are based on Redpine Signals' 9113 ultra-low power Convergence SoC, and offer dual-band 1x1 802.11n. Our latest products - 9116 Wi-Fi modules are also FIPS 140-2 compliant.

These are high performance, long range and ultra-low power modules and include a multi-threaded MAC processor called ThreadArch®, digital and analog peripheral interfaces, baseband digital signal processor, calibration OTP memory, dual-band RF transceiver, dual-band high-power amplifiers, diplexers, diversity switch and Quad-SPI flash. These modules are available in small footprint form factor, and with low BoM requirement.

The modules are available in a small footprint form factor with low BoM requirement.
