Qorvo: multi-channel IoT transceiver certified for thread protocol

Qorvo announced that its GP712 System-on-Chip is the first multi-channel IoT transceiver in the industry to be certified for the Thread protocol. With concurrent support for Thread and ZigBee on different RF channels, the GP712 enables designers to use a single transceiver on their gateway products to simultaneously serve both IEEE802.15.4 implementations.

The GP712 incorporates Qorvo’s best-in-class range and low-power operation, as well as robust RF technology that limits interference. Its multi-channel, multi-protocol design helps ensure that gateway devices are not made obsolete by shifting protocol standards. Capabilities can be added with simple software upgrades. Qorvo’s platform uses OpenThread. This Nest Labs initiative aims to provide an open-source implementation for the Thread standard for smart home solutions. Qorvo’s Wireless Connectivity business is actively engaged as a contributor to the OpenThread community with the GP712 development platform.

More information about the IoT is available by downloading the Qorvo free e-book series, “Internet of Things For Dummies.” The two-volume series is designed to help technical and nontechnical professionals understand the intricacies of the IoT.
