Qorvo, a provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, and Leedarson, a lighting and internet of things (IoT) solutions company, have partnered to create a family of 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 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.
This new, smart light bulb will be demonstrated at the Leedarson booth during the IFA Consumer Electronics Unlimited 2018 show in Berlin, August 31 through Sept. 5 (Hall 6.2 Booth 130), and in the Qorvo booth at IBC 2018 in Amsterdam (Hall 1 A50) September 14 to 18.
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%.
The Qorvo QPG6095 SoC advances the state of smart home networking by supporting different connectivity standards, including IEEE 802.15.4, Zigbee 3.0, Thread and BLE 5.0, for sensors and actuators throughout the home. This enables 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 QPG6095 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.
