Various Wireless Technologies What is Wibree? Specification Why is Wibree needed? Wibree implementations Wibree and Bluetooth comparison Applications Advantages and Disadvantages

2

Wi-Fi, Wi-max, Zigbee, Bluetooth……. These connect to large devices like mobile phones or personal computers. No other existing wireless technologies will connect with small button cell battery devices so effectively. Nokia introduced the new connectivity technology

Bluetooth Low Energy Technology
Wibree is also known as
3

WIBREE

Wibree is the first open technology offering connectivity between mobile devices or personal computers, and small, button cell battery power devices such as watches, wireless, keyboards, toys and sports & health care sensors.

4

Currently available standardized local connectivity technologies are not optimized for ultra low power applications.

5

Technology coming under IEEE 802.15.4 STANDARD The 2.4GHz frequency connectivity technology, offering low power usage. Wibree’s design goal of 1-2 years on a single battery. Wibree is “up to 10 times more energy efficient than Bluetooth”, putting Wibree around 10mW.

6

Wibree implementations:

There will be two types of Wibree implementations Wibree stand-alone chip

Wibree-Bluetooth dual-mode chip

7

Wibree stand-alone chip:
Used with applications which require extremely low power consumption, small size, low cost and where only small quantities of data are transferred. An ideal solution for small devices (like heartrate monitors) that use only short data messages and must have long battery life.

8

Wibree-Bluetooth dual-mode chip:
• •

Designed for Bluetooth devices Integrating with Bluetooth chip using current Bluetooth peripherals Additional tiny power cell (EG: CR2430) Mainly integrated in mobile devices & personal computers

• •

9

There are two different cases for the network topologies :  single and dual mode topology  single mode only topology
Wibree supports star and star-bus network topology

10

Single and dual mode topology dual mode devices act as hubs and single mode devices act as nodes
Single mode topology one of the single mode devices acts as hub

Wibree and Bluetooth

The maximum transmitted output power of

Bluetooth class 2 is 2.5 mW. The total power
consumption is much higher.

The output power of Wibree standard will be around 0.25mW. Each manufacturer will determine its own transmit power.

EFFECTIVE APPLICATION OF WIBREE

16

Advantages
• • • • • •

Ultra-low power consumption Long battery life Small chip size 10 times more energy efficient than Bluetooth Inexpensive implementation Easily integrated with Bluetooth solutions

17

Disadvantages:

Data transmission is very slow, i.e. only

1Megabit per second

Cannot be used in high bandwidth required applications

18

Future With WIBREE
µBlue is the upcoming Bluetooth low energy solution range from Nordic Semiconductor. It will bring Bluetooth wireless connectivity to portable devices running on small but standard coin cell (watch) batteries and support battery lifetimes from months to years, depending on the application

19

Taking all of these factors together, Wibree has the potential to transform consumer devices. It will solve the technology and monitoring issues that are currently hindering the adoption of wireless healthcare services and enable a whole new generation of lifestyle, monitoring and safety products.
