The leading semiconductor component distributor dedicated to the Asia-Pacific market, General Assembly Holdings, announced that its subsidiary World Peace has launched a complete smart home ZigBee development system solution based on NXP (NXP) i.MX RT1020 and JN51xx (including gateway board) , APP, cloud service).

Smart home is a residential ecosystem that uses integrated wiring technology, network communication technology, security technology, automatic control technology, and audio and video technology to form a residential ecosystem. Compared with ordinary homes, smart homes not only have traditional living functions, but can also integrate home life-related facilities and provide users with a full range of intelligent interactive functions through an intelligent control system.

The ZigBee 3.0 gateway solution based on NXP i.MX RT1020 and JN51xx launched by the General Assembly Shiping can be used in smart home design to bring users a safe and fast connection experience. The solution has the functions of remotely controlling equipment, obtaining equipment status remotely, local scenes, freely controlling other products, and indicator light feedback. In terms of circuit design, this solution uses NXP RT1020, built-in Cortex M7 core, with a frequency of up to 500MHz, and features high performance, low cost, and easy development.

Not only that, the solution also complies with the ZigBee 3.0 specification, and has the characteristics of interconnection with other manufacturers’ products, long transmission distance, self-organizing network self-healing, stable bottom layer, and short development cycle. Currently in the market, UNGA Shiping has provided developers with free evaluation boards, APPs, and cloud services.

Among them, NXP RT1020 has a wealth of peripheral interfaces: including 4 I2C interface, 4 SPI interface, Ethernet interface, 8 Uart, 3 I2S/SAI, provide designers with a hardware basis for expandable peripherals.

The ZigBee part uses the form of a module, and because the NXP JN5189 peripheral circuit is simple, only a crystal oscillator and a small amount of capacitors can be used to build the smallest system. Its internal BALUN single radio frequency output port design and up to 10dB transmit power can not only save the designer of radio frequency circuit design but also reduce the cost of external PA.
