Sophia-Antipolis, France – November 7th, 2011 – RivieraWaves, leading provider of low power wireless connectivity IPs for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, today announced that the SAME (Sophia Antipolis MicroElectronics) Conference 2011, a major annual conference and exhibition for micro-electronic, awarded Best Paper honors to RivieraWaves. T
his paper, “Power / Energy Simulation tool for connectivity systems”, presents a simulation tool that can estimate the power dissipation and energy requirements of a distributed wireless connectivity system, in a real-life application. A practical example is presented for a Bluetooth low energy network topology composed of devices based on the RivieraWaves IPs and software.
“17 technical papers have been presented at the SAME 2011,” said Jacques-Olivier Piednoire, President of SAME. “This year, the paper from RivieraWaves clearly stood out, so the committee selected it as the best paper award winner.”
During a simulation, the tool computes the critical information required to analyze a complete wireless connectivity system (power dissipation, MIPS usage, runtime, throughput, bandwidth usage, latency, etc…). One can see for instance that the crystal accuracy and the way the application is written have direct impact on the battery life.
“We are honored to have received the Best Paper Award from SAME 2011” said Ange Aznar, President and CEO of RivieraWaves. “This powerful simulation tool allowed us to develop extremely low power semiconductor IPs for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.”
