NXP Ultra low power wireless microcontroller JN516x supports new ZigBee Remote Control 2.0

NXP » JN516x

NXP Semiconductors announced that its ultra-low-power wireless micro-controllers family, JN516x, has obtained the Golden Unit status for the newly announced ZigBee Remote Control 2.0 standard.

NXP JN516x

The new ZigBee Remote Control 2.0 standard enables consumers to easily control their smart home system with their new remote control. The new release offers the most advanced standards available, enhancing the experience of controlling smart lighting, HAVC, security, home monitoring and set-top boxes through a uniquely secure and high performing remote control.

With the ZigBee Remote Control 2.0 and the NXP ultra low power micro-controllers, customers can securely access essential new features, including:

  • Validation based binding to ease the paring process by eliminating the need for involvement, i.e. a button press, on the consumer equipment;
  • Binding proxy for quick binding with a device or a group of devices with assistance of alternative means (e.g. UPNP, HDMI-CEC, NFC, barcodes);
  • IR code upload to dynamically configure IR codes for hybrid IR-RF remote controls;
  • Standards based two-way communication heart beat to enable ‘find my remote’ feature and upload of new firmware image and meta data;
  • Dynamic re-mapping of remote control keys/commands by consumer equipment;
  • HID command bank for the most common ZigBee Input Device standard (ZID) use-cases;
  • Enhanced security enabling security key update after a successful binding.

NXP software for the ZigBee Remote Control 2.0 standard, along with an optimized remote control with one layer board reference design, is available to support design-in customers.
