In a recent statement, Fujitsu Electronics Europe (FEEU) announced its partnership with the US-based company InnoPhase to explore extreme low-power PolaRFusion radio architecture for battery-based wireless IoT applications. The radio architecture transfers RF processing functionality from power-hungry and large analog circuits into efficient, low-power digital logic, which the company says will open new possibilities in the utilization of today’s Bluetooth, WiFi, Zigbee, and other popular protocol radios. The lower power consumption should enable a whole new class of battery-based IoT devices.
FEEU began evaluating the potential of WiFi being available in battery-based applications, immediately after the market launch of InnoPhase’s first product at the beginning of 2018, the Talaria ONE ULP WiFi Radio. Based on ideas and feedback from customers, InnoPhase reportedly is now planning to expand the device’s feature set in a new product coming soon in 2019.
According to Dr. Klaus-Peter Dyck, Manager, Marketing and Application, FEEU, within the company’s focus on Ultra-Low Power and IoT applications, the FEEU Engineering is currently testing InnoPhase’s WiFi-based technologies in combination with the products of its other Ultra-Low Power vendors. The company is working directly with InnoPhase to create a foundation to fully support this new technology in future FEEU projects in Europe.
With the commitment and dedication to bring feasible PolaRFusion solutions to customers, FEEU follows its claim as a Value Added Distribution Partner. According to Axel Tripkewitz, President, FEEU, as a global technology gateway, the company not only offers its customers a wide range of products and services for IoT and related application but also employs experts to help customers to find the solutions that best meet their individual needs. This, in turn, accelerates the search for new products and services and ultimately leads to a shorter time to market.
