Communication Controller Chips for the RF4CE Market
GreenPeak makes it easy for cable operators, CE manufacturers and MSOs to introduce low cost and robust RF4CE solutions.
GreenPeak's chip portfolio allows the development of robust and low cost ZigBee RF4CE applications for remote controls, set-top boxes, home gateways and TV’s, addressing an overall one billion unit annual market.
Overview GreenPeak RF4CE communication controller chips
All devices are optimized for low cost, ease of integration and allow fast time-to-market by only requiring a simple
configuration step to achieve a complete ZigBee RF4CE-compliant end product.
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 InspectionDeep 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.
