Zigbee® Home Automation Communications Controller

    Key Features

    • IEEE 802.15.4 compliant PHY and Real-Time MAC
    • Excellent range by antenna diversity: 8 dB more reliable link budget compared to single antenna
    • Additional robustness by packet-in-packet resynchronization
    • Hardware accelerated AES and CCM encryption with 128-bit keys
    • XAP5™ high performance 16/32-bit microcontroller
    • 4 Kbyte RAM, 64 Kbyte Program Memory
    • Advanced Energy Management, supporting Energy Harvester and battery operation
    • UART, SPI or TWI serial interface
    • ADC for two analog input channels and battery level

    The Qorvo GP490 Zigbee Home Automation Communications Controller is a System-on-Chip that provides a fully integrated solution for ultra-low power wireless communications for Zigbee Smart Home end node applications. It is compliant with the IEEE Standard 802.15.4, providing robust spread spectrum data communication with a secure encrypted data flow.

    The GP490 features a radio transceiver, integrated real-time Medium Access Control processor, integrated microcontroller, security engine, event scheduler, advanced power management features, memory and an extensive set of peripherals. The integrated RF filtering simplifies the RF design complexity enabling very low cost single layer applications using simple PCB antennas requiring no shielding and a minimum number of external components.

    Advanced power management features ensure that power consumption is minimized in both active and standby states.

    The GP490 application layer is programmable. It can communicate with external peripherals via UART, SPI, TWI or direct signal interfaces.
