Overview

The FC9000 is a highly integrated ultra-low power Wi-Fi system on a chip (SoC), which contains an 802.11b/g/n radio (PHY), baseband processor, media access controller(MAC), on-chip memory, and a host networking applications processor all on a single silicon die. The SoC enables full offload capabilities, running the entire networking stack on chip, so that no external network processor, CPU, or microcontroller is required, though the SoC may optionally be used with a microcontroller.

VirtualZero™ is a synthesis of breakthrough ultra low power technologies which enables extremely low power operation in the SoC. VirtualZero shuts down every micro element of the chip that is not in use, which allows a near zero level of power consumption when not actively transmitting or receiving data. Such low power operation can deliver a year or more of battery life depending on the application. Advanced algorithms enable staying asleep until the exact moment required to wake up to transmit or receive.

The SoC is built from the ground up for the “Internet of Things” and is ideal for door locks, thermostats, security video cameras, appliances, sprinkler systems, and other devices that comprise the ConnectedHome.

Evaluation boards and a complete software development kit (SDK) are available. The SDK includes sample applications, provisioning apps, AT command library, power management tools, and more.

A fully staffed, highly trained, worldwide application engineering support team is available to help you quickly integrate the SoC and its associated modules into your product.

About FCI

FCI, which is part of the mobile communications product line of Silicon Motion (NasdaqGS: SIMO), designs, develops and markets high performance, low-power mobile TV SoCs, 2G/3G/4G tranceiver ICs, ultra low power Wi-Fi SoCs and electronic toll collection SoCs.

FCI is a pioneer in RFIC Technologies including mobile TV ICs, and mobile communication transceiver ICs. FCI has one of the broadest portfolios of mobile TV related technologies, and CDMA related technologies. FCI shipped its first CDMA receiver IC in 2002, its first mobile TV tuner in 2005 and its first LTE transceiver IC in 2010. FCI has become one of the leading suppliers for mobile TV ICs, and mobile communication transceiver ICs.
