Qorvo and LEEDARSON Launch Multi-Standard IoT Smart Lighting

By Ken Briodagh September 06, 2018

Qorvo, a provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, and LEEDARSON, a lighting and IoT solutions company, have partnered to create a family of smart home lighting products that operate concurrently with Zigbee 3.0 and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 protocols – offering compatibility with the most popular IoT standards. The first of these solutions is a new LEEDARSON smart light bulb and light switch that integrates Qorvo’s QPG6095 system-on-chip (SoC), a multi-protocol/multi-channel smart home communications controller for ultra-low-power wireless applications.

The Qorvo QPG6095 SoC advances the state of smart home networking by supporting different connectivity standards, including IEEE 802.15.4, Zigbee 3.0, Thread and BLE 5.0, for sensors and actuators throughout the home. This enables easy integration of multi-protocol use cases in IoT smart home devices, supporting simultaneous interactions with a BLE-enabled smartphone and the Zigbee network.

The QPG6095 is BLE 5.0 and Zigbee 3.0 platform and product certified, and Zigbee certified for Touchlink, for lighting applications. It also provides Green Power energy efficiency, extended range and battery life, and robust interference mitigation.

“Qorvo’s QPG6095 allows us to develop solutions that support multiple IoT protocols, enabling new use cases and applications in the lighting market,” said Luke Lin, president of IoT, LEEDARSON. “Its Green Power feature enables coin cell battery operation, offering a longer battery life of 10 years for light switches and smart home sensors. This greatly reduces cost and time spent by users replacing batteries.”

“The QPG6095 is the only SoC to feature dynamic, multi-protocol support in an OS-independent, hardware-accelerated environment,” said Cees Links, general manager, Wireless Connectivity business unit, Qorvo. “It is a ready-to-use solution that helps OEMs reduce costs and development time, and enhance the speed at which they can respond to the changing needs of their customers. We are very pleased to be working with lighting and IoT innovator LEEDARSON to create new products for this fast-growing market.”
