Nordic partners with Movea for motion enabled TV remote controls

April 02, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Movea entered a technology partnership with Nordic Semiconductor ASA for the development of new and innovative, motion-enabled 2.4GHz RF remote control reference design.

The nRFready Smart Remote is a complete hardware and software reference design for advanced browsing control of the latest Internet-enabled and Web 2.0-enabled TVs and set-top boxes (STBs). The nRFready 2.4GHz RF Smart Remote reference design features a multi-touch enabled TouchPad, a miniaturized QWERTY keyboard, a 6-axis motion sensing solution (3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope), and an ultra low power accelerometer. The RF connectivity is enabled by Nordic's nRF24LE1 System-on-Chip (SoC) and Gazell 2.4GHz RF protocol stack. Movea's SmartMotion firmware is ported to the SoC's integrated microcontroller. This is a complete off-the-shelf system, providing Nordic customers with a motion-enabled solution ready to be integrated within remote control and other computer peripheral designs.
