Qorvo (NASDAQ:QRVO) says its Low Power Wireless business unit (formerly GreenPeak Technologies) is the first in the industry to receive the ZigBee 3.0 certification for its smart home gateway platform. A certified ZigBee 3.0-ready platform enables software developers to integrate the standard into their smart home applications.

ZigBee 3.0 combines the capabilities of the existing ZigBee smart home profiles in a single unified protocol. It also includes ZigBee Green Power, which supports battery-less, energy harvesting devices. ZigBee 3.0 is intended to facilitate communication and interoperability among a variety of smart devices for home automation, light control, building automation, retail services, health care and telecommunication services.

The new ZigBee 3.0 SDK for smart home gateways provides a design template intended to enable quick system integration. Developers can focus on building a system without needing to dig into the details of the ZigBee 3.0 standard. New ZigBee 3.0 SDK for smart home gateways incorporate the GP712 radio communication controller chip for multi-channel radio support. It allows communication with various sensors, controllers and systems, and features multi-stack protocol capability and scalable software architecture.
