At the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ: NXPI) is demonstrating a wireless smart lighting network designed for ease of installation in the home. The demo includes an energy harvesting switch (battery-less, no wires) developed by EnOcean, a world leader in energy harvesting wireless solutions. The switch uses the NXP JN5161 wireless microcontroller and implements the ZigBee® Green Power feature.
“We are very proud to partner with NXP, one of the world leading semiconductor companies, in exploring further energy harvesting wireless sensor solutions. It’s great to see how our joint technological forces result in next generation solutions that bring energy harvesting wireless possibilities and benefits to the specific requirements of the consumer market,” said Matthias Poppel, Chief Operation Officer, EnOcean. “Very quickly, we were able to develop a battery-less wireless switch module prototype for the first time operating a 2.4 GHz radio and NFC powered by energy harvesting. Such new technologies add to EnOcean’s more than 12 years of experience in energy harvesting, ultra-low power wireless communication and energy management thus enabling easy installation and exciting new use cases for our sensor solutions.”
