USI Selects GreenPeak ZigBee for High-Growth Smart Home Market

USI, Universal Scientific (Shanghai) Industrial Co. Ltd, the leading global expert in the design and manufacturing of wireless module solutions, has joined forces with GreenPeak Technologies, the industry leading Smart Home low-power radio communication semi-conductor company, to develop a high performance and low cost ZigBee module for Smart Home sensor devices.

The new USI ZigBee module enables a swift implementation with minimal integration efforts for a quick time to market. The module allows Smart Home device developers and manufacturers to quickly and economically upgrade their sensor devices by adding ZigBee technology.

The USI ZigBee module is a pre-qualified building block that integrates hardware with the ZigBee networking technology necessary to transform thermostats, motion sensors, lighting, smart plugs and other sentrollers into interactive Smart Home ZigBee devices. The ready-to-go module includes both hardware and software tools required for a quick time to market, is FCC certified, and includes guidelines and tools to ensure efficient product certification. It is available as a bare module with small form factor, allowing compact integration in existing designs and supports interfacing directly to a sensing component or a host processor.

“Adding a ZigBee module to our portfolio will help device developers who do not have ZigBee expertise in house to speed time to market” says Albert Liu of USI’s Wireless Product Business Unit. “We expect ZigBee will grow quickly in the Smart Home application market. By offering a production-ready and pre-certified ZigBee module, we can significantly help reduce the cost, complexity and time of designing ZigBee connected devices. We have chosen the GreenPeak silicon because it is the best in class ZigBee solution available today and because we know GreenPeak as a reliable business partner.”

According to Cees Links, CEO of GreenPeak: “This module approach offers the optimal combination of cost-efficiency, ease of integration and performance. Device manufacturers are keen to bring ZigBee connectivity and interactivity to their sensor and actuator products. They can use the module for prototyping, for a ZigBee product launch, or for test marketing purposes. As ZigBee continues to gain market momentum in the Smart home and the IoT, the module will allow further adaption for various applications and consumer electronic products that have previously been restricted by volumes. We are proud to have our chip in the USI modules and excited to work with USI, the world’s largest WiFi module manufacturer today, with an unmatched track record in wireless module manufacturing.”
