Ultra Low Power Wi-Fi SoC for battery powered IoT devices


The DA16200 SoC is the world's first Wi-Fi SoC delivering year plus battery life for always connected Wi-Fi IoT devices. DA16200 is low power Wi-Fi networking SoC that delivers a dramatic breakthrough in battery life even for devices that are continuously connected to the Wi-Fi network. In most applications, one year plus battery life is achievable. There is no tradeoff in output power or range as the SoC’s range is industry leading. The chip also features very strong IoT security, including WPA3 and TLS for authentication and encryption at Wi-Fi and higher stack layers.  The DA16200 is a full offload device, meaning the the entire Wi-Fi and TCP/IP networking stack and even end product application code can run on chip with no external CPU or MCU required. Alternatively, a small inexpensive MCU can send the DA16200 commands and the SoC will still perform the full offload networking stack functions.     

The DA16200 modules are the perfect complement to the DA16200 ultra low power Wi-Fi SoC.

DA16200MOD-AAxx modification request

Posted by tjoseph1 45 points 5 replies


Please consider the DA16200DMOD pads be exposed side-ways that

would make it  "solderable" as in the case of ESP32.

Please have a look at the attached image of both modules side-by-side.

It is extremely difficult to solder DA16200MOD (in its current form) onto a prototype PCB.

Having "side-ways extended pads" will be really helpful during initial h/w design phase,

It would take many weeks if we order pcbs online ; again, there will be sudden design changes all along until the design is stabilized.

"side-ways extended pads" are known as castellated pads.


How to Solder: Castellated Mounting Holes -

Hi There,

Thanks for your feedback. I'll share it internally.

Thanks, PM_Dialog

Thank you so much mon2 & PM_Dialog..

DA16200MOD with castellated holes could be another model/type if the current form needs to be retained. 

People can have 2 models to choose from.

I would buy castellated modules even if those cost more since they allow fast prototyping.

I don't have to wait weeks for the pcb that involves much more delay these days due to lock-down.

It would be really helpful for the community if Dialog could offer castellated DA16200MODs.

The "covid-ready" DA16200 modules :)

Thanks again.

@tjoseph1, not to hijack this thread but would a breakout board for these SMD modules pre-mounted be of interest ? We are currently tooling up for the DA16200 / DA16600 modules and have an in-house SMT line. We are reviewing to build a PCBA with this module onboard and breakout to the mentioned castellated pins for the maker market. So this will be a 'stacked' PCB with a pre-soldered module but then fanning out to the desired 2.54 mm pitch castellated pads. The current 1mm pitch pads are not hand solder friendly. Considering at this time to offer 20 pins on each side like a 'dip format'. Hope to share more details as we progress with our tooling which is in development.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I am already working on the daughter board.


Picked 2mm male 14-pin x 2 connector, since there are only 27 active pins in the module, ignoring the "F_xx" pins[16-21].

BTW, I am waiting for Dialog's answer on this:…

The advantage I see is, just unplug the daughter board and re-use it on the new proto-board.
