[scrap] RKi6000 Wi-Fi for IoT, Lowest power in the world
Rockchip annouces the lowet power Wi-Fi, RKI6000, for IoT.
Rockchip RKi6000 is claimed to be the lowest power Wi-Fi in the world, similar to that of Bluetooth 4.0 LE, it is designed for IoT applications, for Smart Homes, for smart lights, doors, kitchens, wearables, consumer electronics, home appliances, home safety, automation systems, automobiles and medical equipment, etc. Rockchip says that it can run for 35 years on AAA Batteries (when set to only ping data only once every several minutes) The RKi6000 uses Rockchip's new ultra-low power Wi-Fi and memory technology to reduce power consumption of IoT (Internet of Things) smart devices by 85%, with power consumption equal to that of Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), with receiving power consumption around 20mAh during use, 85% lower than standard Wi-Fi built with RF architecture. When compared with the Bluetooth/ZIGBEE standard, Rockchip says that Wi-Fi is more convenient to use for IoT with the easy Internet connection provided by the standard Wi-Fi infrastructure, but because of its high power requirements, Wi-Fi was previously unable to be incorporated into portable devices with an electrical current limit.
