Includes Frequency Hopping to the Cloud and Back, Wi-Fi Sensor Networking, Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Low Energy, and More
RF Monolithics, Inc. (NASDAQ: RFMI) (“RFM” or “the Company”), a
world-wide leader in a broad range RF technologies for
machine-to-machine (M2M) and wireless communications, announces that M2M
expert Tim Cutler, Director of M2M Business for RFM, will be performing
live demonstrations of the company’s premier Wi-Fi sensor networking and
frequency hopping-based technologies at UBM Electronics’ Design West
Conference and Exhibition Tuesday - Thursday, March 27 - 29, 2012 (booth
1725, McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, California). RFM is also
showcasing the company’s line of Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Combination Modules,
the WLS-Series, that now includes Bluetooth Low Energy v4.0 (BLE).
“Each unique demonstration illustrates the wireless-made-easy features
that OEM design engineers and application developers are looking for
when enabling wireless connectivity into their products,” said Mr.
Frequency Hopping Sensor (FHSS) Networking to the Cloud and Back
As pressure has increased in manufacturing for obtaining operational
efficiency, demand has increased for M2M products that integrate sensors
with FHSS radio modules in a single solution. The FHSS Sensor Networking
to the Cloud and Back demo features the RFM LG24E and illustrates the
ease through which data is transmitted to the cloud or internal network
via RFM’s FHSS-based networking devices.
Low-Power Wi-Fi Sensor Monitoring
A high-demand application in M2M is temperature sensing that leverages
existing WLAN infrastructure. The Wi-Fi Sensor Monitoring demo will
display how the RFM 802.11b/g/n module (WSN802G) easily embeds into the
end-application without the need for programming or a co-processor.
Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Combo Modules Now with BLE
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are extending the edge of M2M to human-to-machine,
especially in a variety of medical and healthcare, sports and wellness,
consumer, and commercial applications. With the recent Bluetooth SIG
release of v4.0 BLE, the new BLE feature is particularly attractive
because it allows OEMs to design wireless devices that are smaller than
ever and yet last longer.
