Mouser Electronics signs global distribution agreement with Telink Semiconductor
Low power radio frequency and mixed signal chips for the IoT from Telink Semiconductor are now available from Mouser Electronics, following the signing of a global distribution agreement.
Mouser will add Telink’s range of SoCs, starter kits and multi-protocol IoT products to its portfolio. Among the highlights of the range are the Telink TLSR827x series of low power, concurrent, multi-protocol IoT devices operating at the ISM 2.4GHz band. The devices support Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1, Bluetooth SIG Mesh, Zigbee, HomeKit, RF4CE, and 2.4GHz proprietary protocols. They are built on a 32-bit RISC-based microcontroller capable of running up to 48MHz and feature up to 32 general-purpose inputs/outputs (GPIOs), including a 14-bit ADC, I²C, SPI, I²S, and stereo audio output.
There is also the TLSR8278 audio RCU (remote control unit) starter kit features a button function and voice command function support and is therefore suitable for RF and IR remote control applications. The starter kit has 27 valid buttons and two-colour indicating LEDs. It also offers Google voice service.
Mouser also offer the TLSR825x series multi-protocol single-chip devices suitable for IoT and human interface device (HID) applications. The low power, concurrent devices support Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 and up to eight antennae for indoor positioning in addition to standard Bluetooth 5.0 features. Designers can use the TLSR825X devices in a wide range of applications, including wearable devices, wireless toys, advanced remote controls, smart lighting, and smart home products.
Telink’s Kite Mesh Starter Kit is based on the TLSR8258 and features multiple PCBAs to implement Bluetooth Mesh applications. It is suitable for home automation and smart lighting, and includes multiple USB dongles for emulating gateways or mesh nodes, as well as a remote control PCBA to emulate remote controllers or wall switches. The mesh starter kit is supported by a range of PC tools and a software development kit to support rapid development of mesh applications.
