BLE ver.4.2 ICs offer enhanced security & low current consumption

BLE ver.4.2 ICs offer enhanced security & low current consumption
Toshiba has announced the launch of two ICs supporting Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) ver.4.2 communications, that match industry leading low current consumption realised by previous products while offering an enhanced security function. Like previous products, the TC3567CFSG and TC3567DFSG realise a peak current consumption of 3.3mA at 3V voltage supply in transmission mode by adopting a highly efficient DC/DC converter and original low-power circuit design.
