Smart home is a home living scene as a carrier, the Internet of Things as the key technology, the integration of automatic control technology, computer technology, and the emerging development of big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and other technologies; home appliances control, environmental monitoring, audio and video entertainment, information management and other functions organic combination, through the home equipment online centralized management to provide security, energy saving, convenience, comfort, and intelligent home life The scene.
At present, smart home products cover smart lighting, smart speakers, smart sockets, smart switches and other smart single products and intelligent devices such as floor robots and smart home appliances, which are widely used in home life and have broad market prospects.
In this context, WiFi integrated solution has become the preferred solution for smart home with the advantages of WiFi in transmission performance, cost, popularity and ease of use.
The transmission speed of Wifi is fast, the communication distance is long, the cost is moderate, and the Wifi router is now popular, and the connection method of Wifi is also very convenient, and the networking of various smart home devices through Wifi is in line with the daily use habits of users. With the encouragement and support of national policies and the mature development of industry technology in recent years, the penetration rate of smart home in China and the overall industry scale are rapidly increasing.
We take the smart home program as an example to measure the scale of WIfi MCU in the domestic smart home market. A three-bedroom family supporting a complete smart home program contains smart speakers (at least 1 set), smart door locks (1 set), smart lamps and lanterns (4 sets), smart switches (4 sets), smart rice cookers (1 set), smart curtains (4 sets), smart purifiers (1 set), smart water purifiers (1 set), and smart air conditioners (1 set), which together require about 20.
With at least 200 million households installing Wifi terminals, the national Wifi MCU market space can be seen to be 20 billion in magnitude, a very broad market space.
Based on the continuous technology development and accumulation in the field of WiFi MCU communication chip, Loxin has developed a number of WiFi MCU chip products with strong market influence, and currently FETL is the agent of Loxin ESP32 series products, which have significant competitive advantages in the market in terms of performance, integration, power consumption and stability and other IoT core elements.
Deep plowing Wifi IoT chip field, the product market competitiveness is remarkable, fully benefit from the IoT market represented by smart home, smart speaker and smart wearable.
Smart speaker is a speaker that integrates voice commands, virtual assistants and other intelligent functions, which can realize voice interaction operation, voice wakeup and other extended application functions through WiFi, Bluetooth and other wireless connection protocols, with humanized and intelligent control experience. It can be applied to a number of living room, bedroom, kitchen and other living scenarios.
ESP32 series chips, with dual-core structure, support WiFi and Bluetooth, richer functions, more convenient development, to adapt to the downstream IoT industry customers on the subsequent development of the product advanced needs.
The ESP32 has a stable performance with an operating temperature range of -40°C to 125°C. The integrated self-calibration circuit enables dynamic voltage adjustment to eliminate external circuit defects and adapt to changes in external conditions. The ESP32 has outstanding competitive advantages in the market in areas such as smart home, smart speaker, and smart wearable products.
As the IoT expands from home automation to home controls such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), garage doors and electric fans, and accelerates in building and industrial automation, the market demand for highly integrated, reliable and secure Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity increases, which boosts the demand for WiFi microcontrollers (MCUs)
