GreenPeak Launches GP570 Chip for Motion-Enabled Remote Controls

GreenPeak Technologies, a semiconductor company headquartered in Utrecht, has launched the GP570 chip designed to enable development of inexpensive remote controls which are motion-enabled, thus addressing the need for intuitive navigation of interactive entertainment applications and services. The GP570 is a part of GreenPeak’sRF4CE remote control line.

Motion sensing-enabled remote controls offer intuitive navigation and browsing, thus presenting an enhanced user experience. The GP570 single SoC (system-on-a-chip) solution will make the motion-enabled remote control an affordable solution, enabling mass marking adoption of the technology.

The integrated GP570 is a single chip-based RF4CE remote control IC solution with integrated motion sense algorithms that combine gyroscope and accelerometer inputs to provide precise gesture recognition and accurate motion control. GreenPeak provides reference designs that allow for seamless integration of the GP570 with little or no effort.

The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GreenPeak Technologies, Cees Links explained that motion-enabled remote controls are an apt solution for the next-gen television services and content. A cost-effective and robust solution, the GP570 chip offers an intuitive and a smooth experience for the user.

The principle analyst of Enderle Group, Rob Enderle stated that motion-enabled remote control will aid cable providers and MSO’s to attract new subscribers since the enhanced features include an extended battery life, whole house coverage and entertaining interactivity.

GreenPeak Technologies will be showcasing its products at the CES 2012 being held at Las Vegas, Nevada between 10 and 13 January at booth #21318 at the ZigBee Pavilion.
