Wi-Fi Sensor Devices that Make Sense
While until recently, Wi-Fi has never been considered a power efficient method for high speed data transfer, system design moderations have been able to change that. Sensor devices that use Wi-Fi now have ubiquity along with power efficiency, speed of data transfer and extended battery life. Wi-Fi enabled sensors are now set to realize futuristic concepts like remote patient monitoring, connected homes and digital plants.
Wireless Sensor Devices have the power to transform every industry, be it Healthcare- by enabling remote collection of vital patient data, Manufacturing- by enabling predictive maintenance through collection of sensitive data from anywhere in the plant to White goods manufacturingby enabling better connected household appliances for the connected home. Its ability to utilize Wi-Fi in low power situations and its high battery life, help customers access data in any condition, thereby managing risks and operations more effectively.
The Wipro Edge
Wipro delivered this project for a North American Fabless ASIC Company by partnering from concept feasibility to module development, and production enablement. Wipro brought significant reductions in costs and time to market by modifying its IPs in Wi-Fi and RF. With a highly competent technical team Wipro was able to help its client overcome the challenges of using Wi-Fi as a technology, in ultralow power sensor node applications, proving that Wi-Fi could be used in this environment. Wipro delivered a general purpose module that could be customized for Industrial, M2M, Medical and other applications while catering to user requirements of power efficiency and ubiquity.
Wipro’s delivery of this optimized design for extreme low power consumption and extra-long battery life of the product placed the customer many miles ahead of the competition. Wipro’s low power SoC design capabilities and custom libraries prevented leakage of power, making the device energy efficient.
The long life of the battery significantly lowers end-user maintenance and installation costs, adding to the product’s market advantage.
Wipro’s Silicon design, System design and Wireless domain strengths and skill in identifying and integrating the best partners across the product ecosystem, made it the perfect partner for the project. Wipro can act as your single point of contact to deliver comprehensive design service including architecture study, hardware and software design, chip layout, RF characterization and production test support.
