Radiocrafts has just released a new power efficient upgrade for RIIM, our long range, sub-GHz wireless communication mesh solution providing unmatched robustness and scalability. The new version of the RIIM SDK supports improved sleep handling:
- A RIIM node in normal operation will search for a network to join. The search process requires more energy than normal operation. Therefore, it is important to control when the device should search for a new network, or, when the device should just shut down to save battery.
- The new SDK has improved the handling of this by adding a new function to put the device in deep sleep. An ultimately low power mode where the device does not search for a new network to join.
This new feature is described in more detail in our latest application note “AN060: Low Power and Deep Sleep in RIIM”.
We have also updated various documents to reflect the changes in the RIIM SDK 3.2.2, these include:
