- Release on:2017-12-05
The chip is designated RM1000 and comes in an 8 x 8-mm 68-pad QFN package or a 3.5 x 3.2-mm WLCSP.
The processor, made on TSMC’s 55nm process, draws about 20mA from a 3.7-V battery when handling 23-dBm transmissions and less than 2 µA in sleep mode.
The intention is to drive prices down to Bluetooth levels.,
Previously known as Wimatek Systems, a software and algorithm company, Riot Micro switched to becoming a semiconductor company three years ago when CEO Peter Wong (pictured) joined the company.
