    The Qorvo GP695 ZigBee/BLE Smart Home Communications Controller provides a fully integrated solution for ultra-low power wireless communications for Smart Home sentroller devices such as thermostats, motion sensors, smart plugs, key pads and door/window sensors. It is compliant with the IEEE Standard 802.15.4 for ZigBee and Thread, and the Bluetooth Core Specification version 4.2 for Bluetooth Smart, providing robust spread spectrum data communication with a highly secure encrypted and authenticated data flow. For ZigBee communications, antenna diversity offers additional robustness in a crowded wireless 2.4 GHz environment.

    The GP695 features a radio transceiver, integrated real-time Medium Access Control and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Controller, integrated ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller, RAM and Flash memory, security engine, event scheduler, and an extensive set of peripherals including analog signal monitors and comparators. The GP695 integrated RF baluns and filters reduce the product’s RF design complexity enabling very low cost single layer applications using simple PCB antennas requiring no shielding and a minimum number of external components. The Flash memory allows for software upgrade over the air.

    The GP695 is capable of running the full stack and applications for ZigBee 3.0, Thread and Bluetooth Smart devices. Integrated multistack, multi-protocol support enables stacks to operate concurrently, and on different channels, enabling innovative new applications combining ZigBee, Thread and Bluetooth Smart in one product.

    Advanced power management features ensure that power consumption is minimized in active as well as in standby states, enabling maintenance free and very small form factor products. For lower power consumption the integrated DC/DC Buck converter can be used together with a few external components. Alternatively, the internal regulator can be used instead of the integrated DC/DC converter, to minimize the bill of material.
