Taiwanese fabless chipmaker Telink Semiconductor has introduced what it claims is the world’s first all-in-one system-on-chip (SoC) for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Based on the company’s BLE Mesh technology, the chip is a multi-mode SoC that combines all the features and functions needed for all 2.4GHz IoT standards into a single chip. Telink’s Mesh technology has already been used in other devices for smart lighting, smart home and other related lighting applications to customers in both U.S. and China, Telink says.
The TLSR8269 is used as a human interface device ranging from smart home applications to wireless toys but can also be used for integrated security, voice search, touch control and more.
The SoC combines the radio frequency (RF), digital processing, protocol stack software and profiles for Bluetooth Smart, BLE Mesh, 6LoWPAN, Thread, Zigbee, RF4CE, HomeKit and 2.4GHz standard in a single chip. It also includes 512KB of flash memory embedded in every chip and is fully configurable via software.
