Dual-protocol ZigBee chip targets set-top boxes and gateways

September 07, 2012 // By Julien Happich
GreenPeak Technologies's GP710 is a dual-protocol ZigBee communications controller with simultaneous support for ZigBee RF4CE and ZigBee IP/ZigBee PRO protocols.

The chip is aimed at set-top boxes, gateways and smart home controllers and designed tor 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.
