Digital Matter Finishes Assessment of Ubilite UBI206 and Places Order for UBI206 Ultra Low Power Wi-Fi Chips

Ubilite Inc. has announced that its UBI206 chip has been chosen by Digital Matter, based in Perth, Australia, for incorporation into its Wi-Fi Indoor Location Products. The Ubilite team engineered the UBI206 Wi-Fi chip to possess power consumption comparable to BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), thereby eliminating the need to compromise between rich high data rate applications and power efficiency. This groundbreaking chip architecture was meticulously crafted to achieve ultra-low power consumption while maintaining a small design footprint and requiring minimal external components, resulting in a significantly reduced bill of materials cost.

The UBI206 is a highly integrated single die (SoC) that empowers a multitude of IoT products with minimal external components. It integrates a switchless 802.11b/g/n radio, baseband, medium access controller (MAC), power management unit (PMU), memories, and an RSIC-V network application processor capable of running the Wi-Fi protocol, TCP/IP stack, and the IoT application seamlessly.

Key Features of UBI206:

  • IEEE 802.11/b/g/n
  • Data rate up to 72.2 Mbps
  • Rx Sensitivity: -97.5 dBm
  • Tx Power: +6dBm (P-1dB)
  • Rx Active Power consumption: 9.5mA
  • Tx Active Power consumption: 11.5mA
  • DTIM10 Power Consumption: 38uA*
  • Single supply 1.65V-3.6V
  • 5×5 QFN40 package

Ken Everett, CEO of Digital Matter, expressed, “The excellent performance specifications and design characteristics the Ubilite team achieved in the UBI206, along with the exceptional application support, were pivotal factors in Digital Matter’s selection for our Wi-Fi-based indoor location products.”

Peter Gammel, CEO of Ubilite Inc., added, “We are thrilled that Digital Matter, a global leader in battery-powered IoT asset tracking with a deployment of over 2 million devices across 500 channel partners in more than 120 countries worldwide, has opted for the UBI206 for its new line of battery-powered indoor location products.”
