This chipset may prevent a network cacophony in your smart home

Broadcom's latest power-sipping IoT component speaks multiple network protocols.

The specs for a WICED Core ELP chipset read like an ad for a mid-1990s PC: Up to 100MHz clock speed, 512KB of RAM, and 1MB of storage. But the new components have as much as four times the RAM, storage, processor speed of current products from Broadcom and other vendors, Bedrosian said. Meanwhile, power consumption is down by 4X.

The chipsets are designed for use in devices with small, long-lasting batteries. They include native support for wireless charging with the A4WP and Airfuel technologies.
