New IoT platform helps mitigate uncertainty surrounding future IoT standards
|Richard Harris in IoT Thursday, January 5, 2017|
The GP695 SoC integrates multiple communication protocols, including IEEE 802.15.4, ZigBee 3.0, Thread and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for sensors and actuators throughout the home. The new Qorvo SoC advances the state of smart home networking by supporting these connectivity standards while optimizing energy efficiency and extending battery life.
Supporting these different connectivity options allows for a single development platform and a single SKU, independent of the communication protocol used by the customer. With this, BLE-based smart phone connectivity for proximity-based services can combine with Thread or ZigBee 3.0 for smart home services.
For example, homeowners can use their mobile phones to connect a GP695-equipped door lock to a ZigBee smart home system using the phone’s BLE protocol. The door lock then can be opened or closed from the mobile phone over BLE. To go a step further, this intelligent system can automatically lock the door over ZigBee when it detects that no one is in the home.
The GP695 complements the multi-protocol GP712, for use with smart home gateways. The GP712 was introduced in 2016 by GreenPeak Technologies – now the Qorvo Wireless Connectivity business.
The GP695 uses the proven ARM Cortex-M4 computing architecture, used by millions of software developers around the world. It features the Qorvo Wi-Fi interference mitigation technology and has an extended range that covers the entire home.
"The 2016 holiday season is set to showcase the increased popularity of smart home devices," said Alex Davies, analyst and editor at Rethink Technology Research. "These next two months should show promising growth for smart HVAC, smart security systems, connected video doorbells and intercoms, garage door controllers, lightbulbs, smoke alarms, and leak detectors. With operators and insurance providers looking to move into the smart home sector, these devices are on track to enjoy record growth."
Qorvo will feature live demonstrations of its innovative smart home and IoT solutions at its booth during the international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 5-8, 2017, Sands Expo, Halls A-D Booth #42114.
Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
