Greenvity Introduces Scalable IoT system Solutions for Smart LED Lighting and Home and Building Automation
MILPITAS, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Communications is now offering total turn-key solutions comprising
system-on-chips (SoC), modules, software and mobile apps that enable any
home device or Internet of Things (IoT) device to be smart and
controllable for energy-saving and home and building automation
purposes. At the core of these solutions are Greenvity's patented Hybrii®
SoCs, which integrate HomePlug®
Green PHY™ powerline communication (PLC) and ZigBee® wireless for
robust and extended-range communication for smart LED lighting, home and
building automation, industrial M2M and energy management.
The Greenvity system
solutions provide all the functions that customers need for rapid
prototype and even pre-production design. Ready-to-go boards and
software enable significantly reduced time-to-market and cost of
development. OEMs and ODMs have the flexibility to customize and scale
up or down the modules and the baseline software to fit specific
applications. Customers only need to add their own software layer to
quickly develop innovative and differentiating IoT devices.
Greenvity's first IoT solutions focus on controlled LED lighting and
home and building automation products such as LED lamps, down lights,
high bay lights, LED tubes, street lights, and also thermostats, HVAC,
routers and set-top boxes.
Three modules are being introduced including the GV-Controller, GV-LED
and GV-Sensor, powered by Greenvity's Hybrii® SoCs, GV7011 and GV7013
chips. Each GV-LED module and GV-Sensor module can communicate with and
be controlled by the GV-Controller via either PLC or wireless to form an
IoT network that mobile devices can access and control wirelessly and
(Home Gateway (News - Alert) & Lighting Controller module) powered by either GV7011
chip or GV7013
chip, consists of an ARM9 processor with Linux OS and also
includes WiFi (News - Alert), Ethernet 10/100, USB, SPI and Bluetooth low energy
(BLE). GV-Controller can be integrated inside any home device such as
a router or thermostat.
(LED Driver Module) powered by either GV7011 chip or GV7013 chip,
can interface to most existing LED drivers and power supplies in the
industry. It enables controllability to LED lights from on/off and
dimming to color temperature adjustment via PLC or ZigBee. The GV-LED
module can be deployed inside LED driver and power supply of LED lamp,
streetlight and down light, or be placed outside as a retrofit
(Sensor Module) powered by GV7011 chip or GV7013 chip, is an
all-in-one sensor module for motion, light and temperature. It can be
deployed inside thermostats, HVAC and light fixtures.
Greenvity Smart Lighting Software suite and mobile apps (supporting iOS
and Android (News - Alert)) are provided with the modules without a licensing fee and
enable monitoring, controllability and intelligence of up to 255
lighting devices and communications with mobile phones and tablets. API
is provided so that OEM/ODM customers can add their own application
software to differentiate and enhance their products.
"Greenvity's new turn-key IoT solutions enable OEMs/ODMs to quickly
build their products and get into the hands of consumers without
compromising performance and reliability," said Hung Nguyen, CEO of
Greenvity. "Our solution for smart LED lighting and home and building
automation consists of system-on-chips, modules and software that
together will significantly reduce time-to-market and cost of
development for our customers."
Greenvity will be demonstrating the new IoT solutions in booth #801 at Distributech,
held Jan. 28-30 in San Antonio, Texas.
Hybrii-XL and Hybrii-Mini SoCs
Greenvity's hybrid SoC connectivity solutions integrate HomePlug (News - Alert) Green
PHY powerline and ZigBee wireless capabilities to enable smart
grid-connected equipment and energy-saving consumer electronics for a
variety of home and building energy management, lighting and smart grid
The award-winning Hybrii-XL
(GV7011) SoC for smart grid, smart energy management, industrial and
consumer applications is the world's first SoC that integrates a
HomePlug Green PHY PLC transceiver, a 2.4GHz RF transceiver of
IEEE802.15.4/ZigBee, a high performance 8-bit microcontroller and
various interfaces including Ethernet 10/100 and SPI for plug and play.
The low-cost Hybrii-Mini
(GV7013) HomePlug Green PHY PLC integrates AFE, Baseband, MAC, and a
high performance 8-bit microcontroller with embedded memories. It offers
high performance and robust powerline connectivity with data rates up to
9.8 Mbps and supports several interfaces including SPI, UART, I2C and
PWM to directly control a variety of LED power drivers and LED chips.
The GV-Controller, GV-LED and GV-Sensor modules are available now by
contacting Greenvity sales offices. The lighting control and home
automation software and the mobile apps are available to OEM/ODM
customers free of charge.
