Murata commercializes low-power Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo module: Helping proliferate battery-powered IoT equipment

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (hereinafter, “Murata”) has developed and begun mass-producing the low-power compact wireless module “Type 2GF” (hereinafter “this product”) with built-in Infineon Technologies (hereinafter “Infineon”) “CYW43022” Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/Bluetooth Low Energy combo chip.

With the expansion of applications in the IoT market in recent years, there has been a rise in IoT equipment with wireless communication functions. There has been a diversification in the different specifications wireless communication functions need to have depending on the application. For battery-powered devices, wireless communication functions are also being required to have lower power consumption.

In response to this demand, Murata has applied proprietary wireless design technology and product processing technology to develop this product with CYW43022 built in to have low power consumption capabilities. Because CYW43022 can maintain connectivity even when a host processor is in sleep mode due to its connectivity processing capability with the chip’s Bluetooth stack and Wi-Fi network offloading, the chip helps this product consume less power at the system level. Space was also saved on the module by using often space-occupying noise shields in a smaller size, which allowed us to make this product more compact.
