Rockchip Launches Lowest Power WiFi
Jun 1 15
Rockchip has announced at COMPUTEX Taipei that it has launched the world lowest power WiFi technology RKi6000 jointly developed with a third party. This technology makes WiFi power consumption equal to that of BT4.0 LE (Low Energy). The receiving power consumption is around 20mA during use, which is 85% lower than WiFi devices for the Internet of Things (IoT), setting abenchmark power consumption level that should renew the standard for WiFi power consumption in IoT smart hardware globally. The power of RKi6000 is comparable with that of Bluetooth4.0 LE and it is possible to use WiFi with coin cell batteries in IoT. The size of products can be greatly reduced and the WiFi technology can be used in more and more applications with limited sizes and currents. As a key connectivity technology of IoT smart hardware, WiFi technology receives a lot of attention from semiconductor companies. When compared with BT/ZIGBEE standard, WiFi is accepted as the most convenient, however the high power of WiFi still prevents it from being used on portable devices with a current limit. RKi6000 can reduce the power consumption and make it equal to BT LE's in three ways: Improvement of RF transceiver architecture. The architecture can greatly reduce the active power consumption of IoT smart devices during continuous data transfer. Ultra low power can be achieved both in work and standby mode. Dozens of international patents have been filed for this technology. Adaptive dynamic power control technology. Power efficiency is optimized in different working modes and the total power consumption is reduced greatly in different application scenarios by adjusting the chip's power configuration dynamically so that better energy efficiency can be achieved. RKi6000 can keep the device online without waking up the host processor. It can reduce the wake up time and simplify the application power control design. Since for most IoT applications, the device should be kept in sleep mode and turned back on when needed, the reduction of wake-up time further lowers the power consumption and extends battery life. WiFi based on traditional RF architecture cannot be used extensively in IoT or wearable devices due to its problems with power consumption. With much lower power, RKi6000 will be widely applied in smart wearable devices, consumer electronics, mainstream appliances, home safety, automation systems, automobiles and medical equipment. Those smart devices can benefit from the easy network connection with standard WiFi infrastructure which can greatly reduce the cost of the application development and speed up the smart hardware commercialization.
Rockchip Introduces New Chrome Devices in Partnership with Google
Apr 1 15
Rockchip announced that it is launching its latest set of Rockchip-powered Chrome devices in partnership with Google and its OEMs, ASUS, Haier and Hisense. Rockchip said its new series of computing devices are powered by the RK3288-C SoC, a 1.8 GHz quad core SoC with power efficient ARM Cortex-A17 cores, a high-performance quad core Mali-T760 GPU and hardware support for VP8 encode and decode. The six new Chrome devices include the Chromebi, a full computing device that can convert any screen into a full Chrome device, along with five new Chromebooks: ASUS Chromebook C201, Haier Chromebook 11 and 11E, the Hisense Chromebook and the very first 10-inch convertible Chromebook, the ASUS Chromebook Flip and the ASUS Chromebook Flip. a 10-inch convertible Chromebook.
Intel Signs Strategic Agreement with Rockchip to Accelerate and Expand Intel-Based Solutions Portfolio for Tablets
May 28 14
Intel Corporation announced the signing of a strategic agreement with Rockchip to expand the breadth of and accelerate the rate at which it brings its Intel architecture and communications-based solutions to market for a range of entry-level Android tablets worldwide. Under the terms of the agreement, financial details of which were not available, the two companies will deliver an Intel-branded mobile SoC platform. This quad-core platform will be based on an Intel Atom processor core integrated with Intel's 3G modem technology. This new quad-core SoFIA 3G part is expected to be available in the first half of 2015. It will be targeted primarily at entry and value tablets. Reportedly, the Intel SoFIA family was added to Intel's mobile product roadmap late last year and includes Intel's first integrated applications processor and communications platform.
