Qorvo® introduces multi-protocol system-on-a-chip to create smarter, safer home environments

(Nasdaq: QRVO) today announced the availability of a complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) for smart home devices - the world's leading provider of RF solutions, - GP695, which supports multiple protocols with very low power consumption.

Smart home appliances shipments in 2004 to 40 million units, is expected by 2021, the annual shipments will be more than 600 million units *. And Qorvo this support multi-protocol SoC launch, will be across a number of communication standards and For the intelligent home more rapid growth caused by obstacles, greatly promote the development of smart home market.

The GP695 SoC integrates a variety of communication protocols including IEEE 802.15.4, ZigBee® 3.0, Thread, and 'Bluetooth Low Power' (BLE) for all of the sensors and actuators in the home.Qorvo's new SoC supports the above connection standards Improve the level of smart home networking, while optimizing energy efficiency and extend battery life.

As a result of these different connectivity options, customers can use a single development platform and a single SKU that are independent of the communication protocol, so the BLE connectivity for smart phones used in close proximity services can be combined with Thread or ZigBee 3.0 for smart home services such as , The owner can use the phone's BLE protocol will be equipped with GP695 door lock connected to the ZigBee smart home system so that the phone can be opened or locked by the BLE lock.Moreover, when detected no one at home, this intelligent system ZigBee can automatically lock the door lock.

The GP795 is an effective complement to the multiprotocol GP712, which will be used in conjunction with the Smart Home Gateway.The GP712 was introduced in 2016 by GreenPeak Technologies, the predecessor of the Qorvo Wireless Connectivity Business Unit.

The GP695 utilizes the proven ARM® Cortex®-M4 computing architecture, which is used by millions of software developers around the world, using industry-leading Qorvo Wi-Fi anti-jamming technology for longer communication distances, Covering the whole family.

"We are seeing smart home appliances becoming more popular at the end of 2016. The next two months are smart air conditioning, intelligent security systems, networked video doorbells and intercom calls," said Alex Davies, analyst and editor of Rethink Technology Research. Systems, garage door controllers, light bulbs, smoke alarms, and leak detectors are expected to show encouraging growth as operators and insurance providers move into the smart home space.

"Qorvo now offers an efficient, multi-protocol solution for gateways and sensor devices in the smart home network," said Cees Links, general manager of Qorvo's Wireless Connectivity Business Unit. "With these cost-effective chipsets, designers can enable consumers to control their smart home Without worrying about the ever-evolving Internet of Things standards. "
