GreenPeak Technologies, a fabless semiconductor company, is delighted to recognize Thread’s entry in the family of protocols based on the IEEE (News - Alert) 802.15.4 standard.
GreenPeak’s family of patented multi-stack, low-power radio chips has been developed to simultaneously support different wireless networking protocols. The family of GP71x chips today supports ZigBee (News - Alert) PRO, SEP 2.0, RF4CE and Green Power.
It allows users to support new and emerging protocols such as the recently announced protocol by the Thread Group, allowing customers to upgrade their devices to support existing protocols for legacy devices, as well as newer devices running Thread at the same time.
The consumer market is getting ready for the Smart Home. Applications like security, energy management and elderly care will become more integrated with standardization, helping to bring the cost of installation down.
GreenPeak is pleased to see that various consortiums are launching IoT and Smart Home standardization efforts, and that many of these solutions are based on the IEEE 802.15.4.
MAC/PHY standard, using the uniform, is available 2.4 GHz band that makes product development and certification for manufacturers a straightforward effort.
Cees Links , founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies, said in a statement, “It is the products and services that we offer to our customers that really matter. For that reason, our chips are designed to be agnostic for the network layer. With our multi-stack capability, we protect our customers’ investment in infrastructure.
