A novel architecture and implementation for ultra low power Wi-Fi chips

Ubilite circuit board

The technology

Ubilite is a fabless semiconductor company building an Ultra-low-power Wi-Fi “System-on-a-Chip” (“SoC”) using its patented technology and novel architecture.

The architecture is designed from the ground up to deliver ULTRA low power consumption, with major innovations in digital, analog and power management. The first product implements the 802.11 b/g/n standard at 2.4 GHz with an output power of 6dBm.
Ubilite's SoC offers the full Wi-Fi experience (high data rates with long ranges) with a power consumption comparable to Bluetooth.
