Zensys Launches the First RF Single Chip Portfolio for IR Replacement in AV Control
Major Milestone in Consumer Electronics Industry; Marks the Start of the Biggest Shift in AV Control in 25 Years
CES 2008 – January 7, 2008 – Zensys, developer of the award-winning Z-Wave wireless home control standard, today announced the launch of Z-WaveAV, the first RF single chip portfolio for IR replacement in AV control.
Complexity, cost, and interoperability have been the main inhibitors for the move from IR to RF in AV control that can now be overcome with Z-WaveAV.
Zero Effort Setup™ makes Z-WaveAV as easy to setup & use like bundled IR remote controls today, which is key for consumer mass market adoption.
Z-WaveAV provides the lowest cost RF system-on-chip (SoC) for high volume AV remotes & AV devices and minimizes the cost difference to today’s line-of-sight limited, one-way IR solutions.
Z-WaveAV provides full interoperability between multiple types of AV devices and between multiple manufacturers – while still leaving OEMs flexibility to innovate and differentiate.
Z-WaveAV provides full support of single and multi-device control and also enables direct device-to-device communication in AV applications for advanced features. It defines literally hundreds of device commands, but doesn’t stop with standardization at this level. Z-WaveAV also incorporates proven specifications for status display and meta data displays from Z-Wave that are implemented in more remote controls today than any other RF technology.
Zensys Announces Most Advanced RF System-on-Chip for Home Control Applications
Extended Set of On-Chip Peripherals and Larger Memory Enables True Single Chip Devices, Reducing Cost of Advanced Home Control and CE Solutions
CES 2008 – January 7, 2008 – Zensys, developer of the award-winning Z-Wave wireless home control standard, today announced the launch of its fourth generation Z-Wave single chip for Unified Home Control ™, the ZW0401, which is the ideal wireless RF control platform for unifying all AV and Home Control devices in an interoperable home network.
The ZW0401 provides a global solution without compromising robustness against interference. It is the only RF single chip that supports both sub-1GHz bands and 2.4 GHz and thereby enables evading interference altogether. Thanks to its patented concurrent multi-channel support, plus an interference blocking performance that is 100 times (over 20 dBc) better than in otherwise comparable RF chip sets, the ZW0401 provides a reliable & robust solution also under heavy interference from WLAN in the heavily utilized 2.4 GHz band.
Z-Wave® is the first technology to bring affordable, reliable and easy-to-use wireless control to every aspect of daily life – the home, consumer electronics, healthcare, and energy use, to name a few. Z-Wave is an award-winning, proven and interoperable wireless mesh networking technology that allows a wide array of devices in and around the home to communicate including lighting, appliances, HVAC, entertainment centers, and security systems. Z-Wave brings many benefits to everyday life including remote home monitoring, home healthcare, safety and security, and energy conservation. Z-Wave certified products are currently available from leading consumer brands in more than 200 products. Z-Wave is the recipient of the Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award in the wireless category and the CNET “Best of CES Award” in the enabling technologies category.
