Powering the Future

The march towards smart cities signifies a ground-breaking shift in urban development, driven by the rise of innovative technologies and the challenges posed by increasing urbanization. This evolution, as detailed in Raltron’s “Smart City Presentation,” highlights the indispensable role of advanced frequency management components in sculpting the urban landscapes of the future. These components ensure the flawless functionality of a complex ecosystem involving Internet of Things (IoT) devices, sensors, and a plethora of communication protocols critical to the essence of smart city operations. Raltron, leading the charge in this domain, offers an extensive selection of products designed to bolster urban life and enhance the efficiency of city services

The Backbone of Urban Connectivity

Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax): The backbone of urban connectivity, Wi-Fi facilitates the high-speed exchange of data across various devices and control centres within the city. Wi-Fi 6, the latest iteration, offers increased capacity, efficiency, and performance in congested areas, making it ideal for smart city infrastructures.

To support the backbone of urban connectivity, Raltron offers crystals and temperature-compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) designed for seamless integration with ICs from leading manufacturers such as Infineon, Silicon Labs, and Microchip. These components play a crucial role in preserving signal integrity in the densely populated urban milieu. Discover Raltron’s comprehensiveWi-Fi solutions, including stub antenna solutions like RST-2400-P-190-IPEX-H and RST-MB-P-153-SMA-G, which enhance connectivity across the cityscape.

Bluetooth and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy): These protocols provide essential short-range connectivity, enabling many smart city solutions from traffic monitoring systems to public transport navigation aids. BLE’s low power consumption makes it ideal for battery-operated IoT devices.

For applications requiring short-range connectivity, Raltron provides high-stability crystal oscillators. These are essential for the precise functioning of devices, supporting technologies from giants like Infineon’s PSoC 6 MCU to Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52810. Raltron’s 2.4 GHz chip and antenna solutions ensure efficient communication among sensors, IoT devices, and control systems, pivotal for a seamless urban experience. Explore the tailoredBluetooth solutions Raltron offers for the modern city.

NFC (Near Field Communication): Operating at 13.56 MHz, NFC supports secure, contactless interactions, which is vital for smart payment systems, access controls, and rapid data exchanges in urban settings.

In the NFC domain, Raltron’s product lineup includes 27.12 MHz crystals and 40 MHz oscillators, optimizing devices for secure, contactless interactions. These components, perfect for NXP Semiconductors’ PN7160/PN7161 and STMicroelectronics’ ST25R3916, streamline smart payment systems and data exchanges.
