MotionSense

Motion sense RF4CE remote controls

The GreenPeak RF4CE chips allow the development of low cost motion-enabled remote controls, addressing the growing demand for smarter and intuitive navigation of interactive entertainment services offered by operators.

 

GreenPeak offers a highly integrated single chip RF4CE remote control SoC solution with integrated support of motion sense algorithms based on combined accelerometer and gyroscope input for advanced gesture recognition and smooth and accurate movement control.

A reference design is available and allows a seamless integration with minimal efforts and a short time to market.

Find-me and push messaging

Unique to GreenPeak's RF4CE communication controller chips is the "Find-me" and "Push messaging" feature.

The addition of the smart “push messaging” and “find-me” apps to the communication controllers is based on GreenPeak's unique ultra low power synchronization technique and 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.

 

Push-messaging allows for a variety of new remote control capabilities including tele-voting and gaming, personal messages and reminders, real-time sports results, stock information and residential sensor network monitoring.

 

Push-messaging also enables operators to create new opportunities for advertising revenues via server initiated commercial push messages on the consumers’ remote control.

 

Find-me enables users to simply push a “find-me” button on the TV or STB that results in the remote generating a signal, blink and beep, to make it easy to find, even when it is out of sight. No more lost remote controls.

 

Deep Packet Inspection

Deep Packet Inspection is a unique feature that allows deep sleep modes of set-top boxes and other host devices by means of Wake-on-LAN messages.
