Reference Designs Serve RF Remote Controls
Based on the Emerald GP500C communication controller, GreenPeak Technologies’ new set of reference designs are designed for IEEE 802.15.4-compliant, 2.4-GHz RF remote controls and RF modules. The products integrate into consumer electronics devices, such as TVs, DVD players, and set-top boxes, which are found inside a cabinet or in another room. The reference designs contain a protocol stack of <4 KB and an embedded IEEE 802.15.4 MAC layer. The products allow IR as secondary use for legacy systems, as well as high-speed content browsing, touchpad operation, gaming, and high-resolution displays on the remote control.
