After a momentary silence, the whispering would…Read more

January 24, 2019 by David Su – 2019 Predictions for Battery-Free Internet-of-Things

A 2018 study from ABI Research predicted there will be 35+ billion connected Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices worldwide by 2023. 35+ billion is a very large number! The IoT world, consisting of various industrial, business, automotive, healthcare, home and personal connected devices, will soon have an amazingly large number of connected and increasingly smart “things”. With…Read more

October 23, 2018 by David Su – Designing Ultra-low Power Bluetooth 5 with Lifelong Battery Operation

When Wi-Fi was in its infancy, I never envisioned it would become the pervasive wireless communication that connects billions of devices. Wireless connectivity has indeed freed our electronic devices from the Ethernet cable.  However, these devices still require power cords or battery power. In fact, many of the billions of connected IoT devices today, especially those…Read more
