Multifunction devices for reduced BOM and high performance
Designing a connectivity product for ultra-low power consumption, regardless of in active-, low power- or OFF mode, is fundamental for a long battery life. Users don’t want to switch the connectivity technologies ON and OFF. An “always ON” model provides a better user experience and this generates strict requirements on battery consumption. ST-Ericsson has an excellent track record on delivering world class power efficiency for connectivity chipsets. Our connectivity products use the latest silicon technology nodes allowing the lowest voltage operation for the core IPs.
