GreenPeak Technologies launched a wireless LED Lighting solution which can combine LED lights with smart ambient applications, giving residents the creative freedom to create lighting scenes that match mood and function. The solution is based on the new GreenPeak GP651 communication chip that can support various ZigBee and IEEE 802.15.4 communication protocols.
The solution supports 1- , 2- or 4-channel LED bulbs, allowing bulb manufacturers to build products which will give residents the ability to dim a bright LED bulb into warm white or to create a more vivid colorful scene. Settings and time schedules can be controlled by a Smart Home system, a smart phone or even a basic wireless switch.
A home controlled wirelessly with this LED lighting solution is smarter, more secure and more comfortable. For security, the system can switch lights on and off, giving the impression of residents being home while nobody is there. Further, LEDs can have varying intensities based on daytime or other needs.
“The GP651 chip enables the support of multiple protocols making it a future-proof and protocol-agnostic solution. GreenPeak’s wireless LED Lighting solution will seamlessly fit existing Smart Home systems, originating from different sources. The GP651 silicon, in combination with our partner’s LED driver that controls the power, will allow the LED light bulb manufacturers to produce light bulbs at very low cost, which will move the controlled LED lighting market into a new era of mass adoption”, says Cees Links, founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies.
The GP651 is a low-cost, small footprint (QFN32), single chip solution. Additional cost savings can be achieved because of its 125°C (257°F) spec, reducing the size of a heat sink, enabling a compact and creative product design, and reducing the complexity of manufacturing resulting in a low total BOM.
