Munich, Germany – 14 December 2021 – Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) today announced the launch of the new AIROC™ Bluetooth® LE and 802.15.4 family to help companies quickly bring low-power, high-performing Matter products to market. Infineon’s AIROC CYW30739 Bluetooth LE & 802.15.4 system on chip (SoC) is a reliable, secure and scalable solution to connect low-power devices in the smart home. The powerful combination of complementary Bluetooth LE and 802.15.4 protocols enhances the performance of smart home products with seamless interoperability, while enabling end-to-end encrypted communication between individual devices in a Matter network.
Infineon’s AIROC CYW30739 Bluetooth LE & 802.15.4 SoC features a low-power radio, which is a key component in low-power multi-protocol systems with rock solid connectivity. More importantly, it offers superior RF performance for robust connections and best user-experience without connection drops. The low-power consumption supports applications that require extended battery life including smart home, smart building, smart lighting and more. These design techniques and process technology are extremely efficient to help reduce active and idle power.
AIROC CYW30739 includes -95.5dBm LE Rx and -103.5dBm 802.15.4 sensitivity for reliable, long-range Bluetooth and multi-protocol connectivity. This smart coexistence creates a seamless interaction between a plethora of connected devices, ultimately providing a better user experience with the smart home. The integrated 96-MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller unit with floating point unit delivers high-performance computing as well as a highly optimized memory system across flash, RAM, and ROM.
“With the launch of the AIROC CYW30739 Bluetooth LE & 802.15.4 SoC, Infineon is entering the 802.15.4 market to deliver high-performing, low-power solutions with seamless, secure connectivity to enable more convenient, energy efficient smart homes,” said Sonal Chandrasekharan, Vice President of the Bluetooth product line at Infineon. “Infineon is excited to enter this market with Matter-ready products across our wireless portfolio.” To further demonstrate the company’s commitment to Matter, Infineon recently expanded its role with the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) by joining the Alliance’s Board of Directors as a Promoter Member.
Infineon offers a comprehensive wireless portfolio to support Matter including the company’s AIROC Wi-Fi, AIROC Bluetooth and 802.15.4, and PSoC™ 6 MCU products. Developers can accelerate the deployment of Matter products by accessing Infineon’s software support for Matter in the open-source Matter repository, and additional Matter-specific capabilities in Infineon’s ModusToolbox™ Software and Tools. The latest version of ModusToolbox is available now for download. More information about Infineon’s support for Matter is available here.
