Toumaz UK Ltd has launched TZ1053 TELRAN, an ultra-low energy radio for wireless sensor networks, remote controls, green energy solutions, smart meters and environmental monitoring. Built on Toumaz's proprietary AMx Mixed Signal technology, the sub-1GHz radio SoC offers 1V operation using a single button cell battery and consumes less than 3mW continuous use power consumption.

TZ1053 TELRAN uses AMx t ultra-low energy technology to deliver longer life from low-voltage battery-based systems for customers developing ultra-low energy applications, without compromising on performance, according to the company press release. The TELRAN contains an 8051 running Toumaz's Nanopower Sensor Protocol (NSP) allowing developers to program and control the TELRAN device easily with high level commands either over a standard interface, such as UART or over-the-air.

Target applications include the development of two-way communication remote controls for consumer electronic devices; wireless sensor networks based on TELRAN sensor nodes and base stations; environment monitoring and room temperature control; remote controls and toys/games; and smart metering, using TELRAN wireless sensor networks to connect multiple meters for the two-way transmission of status data and firmware upgrades.

TELRAN TZ1053 devices will be available worldwide as engineering samples from the end of February 2011, with production devices in full availability from June 2011. A TELRAN developer kit will also be available at the end of February. The TELRAN Development Kit (TDK) includes a USB TELRAN base station, TELRAN RF module and an accelerometer sensor board with demo and PC application. The TELRAN RF module (TZ1053RFM) is also available to customers for fast prototyping and production.
