GreenPeak Technologies (The Netherlands) has announced the GP501, a new generation of ZigBee transceivers which contains a sophisticated coexistence scheme that allows Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee chips to work side by side in the same device. The GP501 features:
- Deep Packet Inspection, allowing deep sleep modes of set-top boxes and other host devices by means of Wake-on-LAN messages.
- A coexistence interface to allow optimized and co-located ZigBee/Wi-Fi radios to work in the same device, successfully avoiding RF interference when operating simultaneously.
- A 32-pin 5 x 5 mm² footprint that allows integration into even the smallest product form-factors.
