Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (Dallas, TX) [NASDAQ: TXN] has announced the extension of its remote control solutions offering with a new Bluetooth low energy advanced remote control kit. As a technology, Bluetooth low energy allows for remotes with mouse-like pointing and keyboard functionality as well as gesture-, touch-, and motion-based input controls so users can take their viewing and gaming experience to the next level. In addition to control of traditional home consumer electronics, the Bluetooth low energy remote control solution:
- Enables direct control of Bluetooth Smart Ready devices like PCs, laptops, and tablets devices.
- Enables Bluetooth Smart devices like a mobile phone to configure the advanced remote control solution over-the-air.
- Builds upon an already successful remote control family based on TI’s ZigBee RF4CE technology.
- Provides manufacturers the ability to complement their ZigBee RF4CE remote designs with Bluetooth low energy technology with ease, due to pin-to-pin and SoC digital domain compatibility between TI’s CC253x ZigBee technology and the CC254x Bluetooth low energy SoC.
