GreenPeak RF4CE Target – GP712 / GP502

By Qorvo

The GreenPeak Technologies GP502 and GP712 ZigBee Technology-ready IEEE 802.15.4 communications controllers are fully integrated transceiver solutions. They are compliant with the IEEE Standard 802.15.4, providing robust spread spectrum data communication with a secure encrypted data flow.
The interference robustness and antenna diversity offer superior performance in a crowded wireless 2.4 GHz environment. In addition, a Coexistence Interface enables coexistence with other potentially interfering radios (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi) within the same host device.
The controllers provide a high-speed serial interface (SPI or UART) to the host processor.
They support stand-alone RF4CE DutyCycling and packet filtering through Deep Packet Inspection when the host is asleep and have an extremely low standby power consumption enabling total system power consumption of less than 1 mW while allowing reception of remote control commands.
The controllers are optimized for low cost while providing superior performance. Their radio characteristics reduce the product’s RF design complexity enabling low cost single layer applications using simple PCB antennas requiring no shielding and a minimum number of external components.
The GP712 supports multiple ZigBee Alliance and associated low power wireless (6LowPAN, Thread) protocol stacks in the host processor, and is able to listen simultaneously on three different channels with antenna diversity.
