Simply put, the typical IoT device performs three basic functions: sleep, sense, and connect. In many cases, the IoT device must do these functions wirelessly while powered by a battery, allowing it to be placed virtually anywhere in a household or business—or even on roaming livestock. Several standard wireless protocols, such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE),
Market trends of higher Wi-Fi transmit power, higher Wi-Fi throughput, and integration of Wi-Fi and IEEE 802.15.4 radios into the same device have the following impacts:
For modern MCUs and wireless MCUs (WMCUs) used in power-sensitive Internet of Things (IoT) applications, current consumption while executing code has dropped significantly, achieving numbers of even 40 µA/MHz and below. With these low-power specifications, you might wonder why we need sleep modes anymore.
The Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group) announced the standard for Bluetooth 5 back in December 2016 but hasn't seemed to generate much interest since its release.
Casting aside my cynicism for a moment, there is one aspect of Bluetooth 5 that has me really excited: it's designed to coexist with other wireless technologies. Bluetooth 5 won't interfere with protocols like Zigbee and Thread, allowing designers to make devices that can operate on multiple protocols.
