GreenPeak offers RF4CE compliant software stack and reference designs for RF remote controls
Cees Links, CEO of GreenPeak, said: "By using GreenPeak's RF4CE software stack and reference designs, manufacturers are now able to build interactive, long distance remotes that are essentially maintenance free - able to run on a single coin cell battery without ever having to change or recharge it. All this for less than two dollars per remote."
RF4CE is an open standard for radio based remote controls in the field of audio/video consumer electronics. The standard was originally developed by the RF4CE Alliance founded by Panasonic, Philips, Samsung and Sony. RF4CE recently joined forces with the ZigBee Alliance to launch the RF4CE standard under the ZigBee umbrella. RF4CE provides low power consumption, easy and intuitive pairing, instantaneous response time, frequency agility, co-existence with other IEEE802.15.4 (2.4 GHz) communication systems, robust connection, security and support for multiple applications.
GreenPeak's RF4CE reference designs provide omni-directional (no point-and-shoot), high-speed, low latency two-way communication with high throughput, allowing fast content browsing, touchpad operation, gaming, as well as high resolution displays on the remote control. With a 30 m range and contrary to Infra-red based remote controls RF4CE remotes can control equipment anywhere in a home or business. RF4CE remotes can also control systems hidden away inside cabinets or closets as well as home automation systems, monitoring and managing air conditioning, heating and security applications.
