Qorvo and LEEDARSON develop multi-standard smart lighting solutions to accelerate Internet Of Things (IoT)
Qorvo and LEEDARSON have launched smart home lighting products that operate concurrently with Zigbee 3.0 and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 protocols – offering compatibility with the most popular IoT standards. The products enable easy integration of multi-protocol use cases in IoT smart home devices, supporting simultaneous interactions with a BLE-enabled smartphone and the Zigbee network.
The first of these solutions is a new LEEDARSON smart light bulb and light switch that integrates Qorvo’s QPG6095 system-on-chip (SoC), a multi-protocol/multi-channel smart home communications controller for ultra-low-power wireless applications.
The company says that the Green Power feature of the QPG6095 SoC enables coin cell battery operation, claims to offer a longer battery life of 10 years for light switches and smart home sensors. This greatly reduces cost and time spent by users replacing batteries.
According to IDC, the market for smart home lighting products is expected to grow from $1 billion in 2017 to $3.5 billion in 2022, a compound annual growth rate of 26%.
New Multiprotocol Smart home lighting chip
The Qorvo QPG6095 SoC supports different connectivity standards, including IEEE 802.15.4, Zigbee 3.0, Thread and BLE 5.0, for sensors and actuators throughout the home.
The chip is BLE 5.0 and Zigbee 3.0 platform and product certified, and Zigbee certified for Touchlink, for lighting applications.
It also provides Green Power energy efficiency, extended range and battery life, and robust interference mitigation.
Cees Links, general manager of Qorvo’s Wireless Connectivity business unit, said, “The QPG6095 is the only SoC to feature dynamic, multi-protocol support in an OS-independent, hardware-accelerated environment. It is a ready-to-use solution that helps OEMs reduce costs and development time, and enhance the speed at which they can respond to the changing needs of their customers. We are very pleased to be working with lighting and IoT innovator LEEDARSON to create new products for this fast-growing market.”
