The RS9113 M2MCombochip from Redpine integrates dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and dual-mode BT 4.0 wireless connectivity, suiting it for universal M2M communications applications. The M2MCombochip is fully self-contained with no requirement of any part of the protocols to run on a host processor. A complete reference design and development environment for creating applications using the new chip is provided, as well as a development kit with a USB interface. As a convergence device, the new product maintains connections on some or all interfaces – Wi-Fi, BT 2.1+EDR, BT 3.0, BT 4.0, and ZigBee – presenting virtual simultaneous multi-protocol connectivity. A gateway device implemented with the device could communicate with a medical sensor with single mode BT 4.0 connectivity, a smartphone with BT 4.0/Wi-Fi, or an HVAC device with ZigBee connectivity without the need for multiple modules from various vendors. The RS9113 M2MCombochip is sampling now and multiple form-factor certified modules based on RS9113 will be available in the second quarter of 2013.
