GreenPeak Golden Unit for ZigBee Input Device
UTRECHT, Netherlands --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, a leading Smart Home RF-communication semiconductor
company, today announced its support for the ZigBee
Input Device standard, which adds specific features to the ZigBee
RF4CE specification for mice, keyboards, touchpads, wands, game
controllers and other input devices.
GreenPeak has achieved Golden Unit status for its ZigBee Input Device
stack software and has also made its development platform available to
its customers to accelerate integration and product design.
Input Device is a global standard for greener, innovative and
easy-to-use mice, keyboards, touchpads, wands and other input devices
used to control and operate computers and consumer electronic devices.
It also offers native support for popular multi-touch and gesture
commands, allowing manufacturers to deliver feature-rich products.
The ZigBee Input Device standard allows consumers to use their devices
from greater distances or even from other rooms because its operation is
not limited to line of sight.
Plus, because of lower power draw,
devices using the ZigBee Input Device standard will get much longer
battery life, greatly reducing the total number of batteries used - and
disposed of - during the lifetime of the device.
GreenPeak's chip unique low latency also allows ZigBee Input Device for
game controllers to transfer data more quikly, enabling faster and more
"GreenPeak has supported the ZigBee Input Device standard since its
inception. It is a great addition to the ZigBee RF4CE specifications and
will make input devices more intuitive and greener." says Cees
Links, founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies. "The ZigBee
Alliance has established rigorous testing plans to ensure conformance to
the standard and to ensure the highest standard of quality for all
future ZigBee products. We are delighted to achieve the Golden Unit
status. Our development platform, combined with Golden Unit
certification, will enable our customers to quickly and easily deploy
ZigBee Certified products using ZigBee Input Device."
The ZigBee Alliance will host a free public
webinar covering ZigBee Input Device as well as ZigBee Remote Control
and the ZigBee RF4CE specification on December 6, 2012.
RF4CE: A Quiet Revolution (News - Alert) is Underway" will be held from 8:00-9:00 am
