Smart and Low Cost Chip for Motion-enabled Remote Controls

 

 

GreenPeak Technologies has announced the launch of the new GP570 chip that will allow the development of low cost motion-enabled remote controls, addressing the growing demand for smarter and intuitive navigation of interactive entertainment services offered by operators.

 

Operators and consumer electronics manufacturers adopt motion sensing for their remote controls to enhance the consumer's user experience with intuitive browsing and navigation extending into new interactive entertainment services. GreenPeak's GP570, highly integrated single SoC solution, enables building cost-effective motion-enabled remote controls, which will allow mass market adoption of the new generation remote controls to become a reality.

 

The highly integrated GP570 is GreenPeak's single chip RF4CE remote control SoC solution with integrated support of motion sense algorithms based on combined accelerometer and gyroscope input for advanced gesture recognition and smooth and accurate movement control.

GreenPeak offers the GP570 with reference designs that allow a seamless integration with minimal efforts and a short time to market. The GP570 is part of the proven GreenPeak remote control RF4CE product line.

Cees Links, Founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies explains: "Motion-enabled remote controls fit perfectly with the next generation television content and services. Our silicon is the most robust and cost effective choice for operators that offer the next generation TV and Set-top Box services that drive competitive advantage and subscriber retention. Motion control will transform zapping into a fun, smooth and intuitive pointing experience."

"Next generation remote controls will help MSO's and cable providers excite existing subscribers and attract new ones," says Rob Enderle, Principle Analyst with Enderle Group. "Adding motion sensing to RF4CE remote control features like interactivity, whole house coverage, and outstanding battery life, will help bring the cable industry into the age defined by products like the Xbox Kinect and Wii."
