The GP490 is an ultra-low-power ZigBee PRO communication controller. It supports the ZigBee PRO chip features, including bidirectional commissioning, bidirectional communication, and full security mode.
The controller is specifically designed for low-power smart home applications including door, window, and temperature sensors and light switches. Equipped with the energy-optimized GP490, these low-power, low-data rate smart home applications can operate on a coin cell battery for more than 10 years.
The GP490 development kit with reference design and software can help device manufacturers build low-cost, low-power sensor nodes, optimized for standard battery and coin-cell battery operation. Guidelines and tools are provided to ensure an efficient ZigBee certification for a cost-optimized feature set of the ZigBee Home Automation (HA 1.2) Application Profile.
The low-cost GP490 enables developers and manufacturers to supply ZigBee Smart Home sensor solutions starting at $5 each. Contact GreenPeak Technologies for specific pricing.
