2016 COMPUTEX Best Choice Golden Award (IC & Components)
Realtek USB 3.1 Type-C HUB (RTS5421)
The RTS5421 is a next generation USB HUB supporting USB3.1 Gen2 SuperSpeed+; offering an amazing 2.4 times performance improvement compared to standard USB3.0. The RTS5421 integrates Type-C Power Delivery (PD) controllers to provide PD support on each Upstream-Facing Port (UFP) and Downstream-Facing Port (DFP), making it the perfect single-chip solution to expand a single USB 3.1 Type C UFP to a USB 3.1 Type C four DFP hub.
The integrated USB3.1 Gen2 Hub and PD controllers come in an 8.5mm x 8.5mm BGA package, which help designers dramatically reduce both the total product PCB size and the design phase schedule. The RTS5421 complies with the latest Type-C specifications and it supports all the functions included in USB3.1 Gen2, such as Multiple-IN and Precision Time Measurement/Link Delay Measurement (PTM/LDM).
2016 COMPUTEX Best Choice Golden Award (Communication & Networking)
Realtek Bluetooth Low Energy SoC (RTL8762A)
Realtek’s RTL8762A is an ultra-low-power Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) SoC composed of an ARM Cortex M0 CPU, Bluetooth GATT Stack/Profile, Flash, IR Transceiver, and voice ADC.
The RTL8762A supports the latest Bluetooth LE 4.2 BQB (Bluetooth Qualification Body) certification, ultra-low power consumption and standby current, 256KByte embedded Flash and Over-The-Air (OTA) update, 80KByte data RAM for flexible APP development, and embedded IR transceiver for home appliance controlled by Bluetooth as well as connection to IoT devices. Additionally, the RTL8762A provides voice ADC for IoT devices with voice value-added features. The RTL8762A’s low power consumption with excellent receiver sensitivity and strong transmitter power provides wide coverage and long battery life. The powerful CPU capabilities, tiny package size, high integration, and generous memory configuration make the RTL8762A the ideal solution for Wearable, Smart Home, and IoT devices.
“We are very honored to receive two Best Choice Golden Awards at COMPUTEX 2016 and are excited to have this opportunity to showcase Realtek’s advanced capabilities in Bluetooth LE 4.2 for Wearable Devices, IoT, and Type-C Hub applications”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang. “We are proud to be a leader in advancing technology that enables the Internet of Things, and these awards confirm the strength of our products in developing the mobile and IoT markets”.
