The battery life is made possible by the low power consumption of the RSL10 Bluetooth 5 radio SoC with firmware enhancements,
Alongside the RSL10, the platform features a 3-axis accelerometer and environmental sensors (motion, pressure and temperature) to provide valuable data and insights into an asset’s environment, condition and orientation.
Each sensor is powered through a dedicated MOSFET load switch, controlled by the RSL10.
This design enables the overall system power consumption to be controlled on a per-sensor basis, which decreases the total power used.
Additional features of the platform include a low-cost antenna, matching circuit optimized for Bluetooth Low Energy transmissions, a multi-purpose dome switch and a 10-pin debugger that can be removed depending on the needs of the application.
