Rafael Micro RT5 Dual-band Multi-protocol IoT Platform Officially Certified by CSA Zigbee Alliance

Rafael Micro launches the “RT5 dual-band multi-protocol IOT platform” which leads the industry through CSA official certification in line with the industry’s mainstream Zigbee standards. Formerly known as the Zigbee Alliance, the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) is an international organization created and maintained by hundreds of businesses around the world that provides open global standards for the Internet of Things (IoT). From Zigbee, the Alliance’s founding technology to Matter, its latest IPv6 IoT-based standard, the Alliance is committed to coordinating the development of IoT applications. The “RT5 dual-band multi-protocol IoT platform” is a design based on Rafael Micro’s software expertise and system experience. Through complete certification it provides the industry’s entire set of open mainstream IoT solutions leading global IoT users towards a more convenient world of internet connectivity.

Rafael Micro’s “RT5 dual-band multi-protocol IoT platform” is a complete IoT solution that controls the operation of IoT connectivity protocols in a variety of mainstream microcontrollers (MCUs). Rafael Micro also offers Bluetooth® Low Energy 5.0 / 5.1 / 5.2, Zigbee 3.0 and dual-band 2.4GHz/Sub-GHz RF hardware subsystems. The industry’s mainstream MCUs can be closely integrated with Rafael Micro wireless subsystems through standard SPI interfaces resulting in efficient control of MAC layer, network layer and application layer functions. Flexible configuration of wireless subsystems provides IoT devices with a wide range of data link control options.

“We are pleased to provide certified ZigBee wireless communication systems to MCU/SoC manufacturers and IoT solution providers that require wireless connectivity solutions on our strong Bluetooth® Low Energy platform foundation” said Ted Sun, CEO of Rafael Micro. “We provide our customers with low power, cost-effective and uniquely featured solutions for their wireless IoT products. ”

Rafael Micro’s “RT5 dual-band multi-protocol IoT platform” supports network protocols such as ZigBee3.0, Thread, BLE5.x, and the first generation supports ultra-low-power high-performance ARM® Cortex®-M0/3/4 microcontrollers. Together with the RT569 subsystem hardware platform it can expand support for 2.4GHz/Sub-1GHz dual-band multi-protocol applications. The RT569 series features a Bluetooth® Low Energy 5.1/5.2 low-power transceiver and a transceiver that meets IEEE 802.15.4 standards. This controller has ultra-low current consumption in wireless reception and transmit modes, and its low power mode allows the use of coin battery power.

Over-the-air (OTA) software update is also available through the serial interface.

With the rapid development of Internet of Things technology, traditional methods of manual control, detection and sampling no longer satisfy the daily needs of work and life. More intelligent and automated ways bring more convenience to logistics and factory management. In this evolution, wireless communication technology is a key element as it can solve problems of remote control, remote monitoring and data acquisition. The “RT5 dual-band multi-protocol IoT platform” supports ZigBee, Bluetooth® and other mainstream communication standards that will be used more widely in a variety of work and life scenarios.
