Dual-protocol ZigBee IC simplifies STB design

Posted: 10 Sep 2012     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:ZigBee  RF4CE  communication controller 

GreenPeak Technologies rolls the GP710, a dual-protocol ZigBee communications controller that supports both ZigBee RF4CE and ZigBee IP/ZigBee PRO protocols at the same time.

The chip is aimed at set-top boxes, gateways and smart home controllers and designed to support simultaneously ZigBee RF4CE applications—such as remote controls—as well as ZigBee IP or ZigBee PRO Smart Home applications such as security, home care and energy management.

This dual-protocol communication chip enables much simpler product design, a cost reduction of the total product bill-of-material (single silicon) and a less complex PCB and antenna that makes it simpler and faster for developers to integrate ZigBee into their set-top box or gateway designs.
