LTC5800-IPM - SmartMesh IP Node 2.4GHz 802.15.4e Wireless Mote-on-Chip


Typical Application

LTC5800-IPM Typical Application


SmartMesh IP wireless sensor networks are self managing, low power internet protocol (IP) networks built from wireless nodes called motes. The LTC®5800-IPM is the IP Mote-on-Chip™ integrated circuit in the Eterna® family of IEEE 802.15.4e System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions, featuring a highly integrated, low power radio design by Dust Networks® as well as an ARM Cortex-M3 32-bit microprocessor running Dust’s embedded SmartMesh IP networking software.

With Dust’s time-synchronized SmartMesh IP networks, all motes in the network may route, source or terminate data, while providing many years of battery powered operation. The SmartMesh IP software provided with the LTC5800-IPM is fully tested and validated, and is readily configured via a software Application Programming Interface.

SmartMesh IP motes deliver a highly flexible network with proven reliability and low power performance in an easy-to-integrate platform.

Network Features



Time Synchronized, Channel Hopping Communications

>99.999% network reliability in even the most challenging RF environments

Sub 50 µA Routers

Can build out a network without any line powered devices. Flexibility to be line powered or energy harvested if desired.

Secure Mesh with 128-bit AES Encryption

NIST Certified Security. Compromise of one node does not compromise network.


Based on 6LoWPAN and IEEE 802.15.4e standards

Highly Accurate Time Stamping

Time stamping on every node is available to applications with millisecond accuracy

Device Features



Industry-Leading Low Power Radio Technology

• 4.5mA to Receive a Packet
• 5.4mA to Transmit at 0dBm
• 9.7mA to Transmit at 8dBm

Pre-engineered RF

RF elements include an on-chip power amplifier and are pre-tuned for optimized performance, including temperature compensation, saving development time.

Energy Harvesting Support

Very low power design enables motes to be powered by a wide variety of energy harvesters

Integrated Temperature Sensor

Precise temperature sensor is integrated directly into the mote.

Design Tools

Linear Technology provides a variety of custom design simulation tools and device models to allow even novice designers to quickly and easily evaluate circuits using high performance switching regulators, amplifiers, data converters, filters and more. Please visit our Design Tools page to view and download:

SmartMesh networks are highly configurable, and allow the user to trade off performance parameters (e.g. latency and power consumption). The Current Calculator spreadsheet enables users to estimate average current consumption and average latency in a particular network topology. In addition, Starter Kits enable users to evaluate network performance in real-world application environments.
