Supporting Multiple Protocols (BLE/802.15.4) Concurrently in a Single Chip
The Internet of Things (IoT) landscape is expanding requiring the need for devices to support multiple protocols in a single chip. BLE is readily available in many personal devices which makes it a good technology to use for command and control of IoT networks. 802.15.4 is mature technology that supports low power mesh networks such as Zigbee and Thread which makes it a good technology to use for an IoT network. This paper addresses ways to enable multi-protocols running BLE and 802.15.4 concurrently on a single chip. It reviews techniques that need to be considered in both hardware and software and the limitations encountered when supporting networks running in both technologies. This paper will also review practical uses cases that require the use of these techniques and the need for supporting multiple protocols concurrently in a single chip.
