10 October 2018 Smart Home Automation Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Qorvo introduced a new system in package (SiP) that enables dynamic, simultaneous support for Zigbee 3.0, Green Power, Thread and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

It integrates Qorvo power amplifier technology providing 20 dBm output, which is especially important for US smart home applications.

The QPG6095M is a fully integrated SiP for ultra-low power wireless communications. It is BLE 5.0 and Zigbee 3.0 platform and product certified, and offers Green Power energy efficiency. By extending range and battery life, it delivers optimised connectivity throughout the home, eliminating the need for complex mesh architectures and unnecessary battery consumption in intermediate devices.
