Golden Unit Specification Ensures Quality and full Interoperability of Future ZigBee RF4CE Products

Thu, 06/11/2009 - 5:07am
Freescale Semiconductor announces it has received the new Golden Unit certification by the ZigBee Alliance for its successful implementation of the ZigBee RF4CE specification. Freescale is one of the first ZigBee Alliance members to achieve the Golden Unit status and has been an influential contributor in the development of the ZigBee RF4CE protocol.

Due to limitation of infrared remote controls with large screen, flat panel TVs, and the increased need for richer user-interfaces and new services, RF based remote controls are becoming pervasive in the home entertainment market, creating a greater need for standards. Freescale offers a range of ZigBee RF4CE certified products for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) that require an immediate, low-cost solution for control of applications such as HDTV, set-top boxes and other consumer electronic devices.

ZigBee RF4CE is expected to enable advanced control capabilities (i.e. two-way communication between entertainment devices) to continue to improve the overall usability of home entertainment products. Freescale’s ZigBee RF4CE platform is already deployed in OEM products and Freescale is working with industry leaders in the development of other consumer electronic products.
