Utrecht, Netherlands – 7 September 2010 – GreenPeak Technologies, a leading fabless semiconductor company, today announced the addition of the smart “push messaging” and “find-me” apps to its current offering of communication controllers for ZigBee RF4CE remote controls. GreenPeak’s unique ultra low power synchronization technique allows both applications to operate with a minimal impact on battery life thereby allowing the remote control battery life to reach more than ten years.
“For a long time, the current infra-red remote control has essentially not changed,” said Cees Links, CEO of GreenPeak Technologies. “But today more advanced communication capabilities enable new apps and increased functionality.” Cees Links continues: “By using GreenPeak's revolutionary technology, these new low power push-messaging and find-me apps provide increased functionality and improved user experience without affecting battery life.”
For a live demonstration of the “find-me” app in ultra low power RF4CE remote controls, please visit the GreenPeak booth at IBC 2010, Amsterdam, 10-14 September – Hall 1 Booth number 1.F94.
