Nordic Showcases Its Matter Strength, Making Smart Furniture Development EasierAuthor:Abluetech    Time:2023-09-05

Nordic Semiconductor showcased its style at the 28th Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (Guangya Exhibition)! They demonstrated the high-performance capabilities of their low-power wireless chips and IoT solutions, showcasing the Matter smart home application powered by Nordic wireless chips to visiting customers. As the earliest company in China to introduce low-power wireless products originating from Nordic Semiconductor, we are particularly concerned about the content of this exhibition.

For IoT enterprises and engineers in the field of smart homes, Matter has become a well-known unified standard. It is a new smart home standard jointly established by major technology companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon, and Zigbee Alliance, aiming to interconnect smart devices from different platforms and brands. Its main advantage is that it is open source and does not require payment of licensing fees when used, allowing anyone to participate and contribute to its development. The Matter protocol was also designed with security in mind, using industry standard encryption and authentication mechanisms to ensure that the device can resist general hacker attacks and other security threats.

On May 18, 2023, the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) released Matter 1.1, which includes updates that make it easier for device manufacturers and developers to get started with Matter, and make it easier to authenticate their products and provide them to users faster. Matter 1.1 has enhanced support for a type of device suitable for many smart home products - Intermittent Connected Devices (ICDs), sometimes referred to as "sleep devices," which are typically battery powered devices such as contact, motion, and temperature sensors, as well as door locks and switches. These devices need to save electricity to achieve optimal operation and lifespan. With additional support, the likelihood of devices going offline is further reduced, and these improvements mean that developers can more easily optimize their products and create a better user experience.

As a leader in the field of wireless communication technology, Nordic Semiconductor has long invested in developing wireless technology suitable for smart home devices and has become an advocate for Matter and other leading ecosystems, continuously contributing to the development of new technologies and protocols. Low power Bluetooth, Thread, and Wi-Fi are technologies used by Matter, and Nordic Semiconductor, as a leading supplier of these technologies, has become the preferred supplier for excellent brands in the smart home field.

In many high-end products, Nordic products can be traced. Nordic low-power wireless chip solutions not only support various Internet of Things protocols, but also help products achieve unity of low power and high performance, extend the battery life and battery life of products, improve product performance, and ensure data security.

Nordic wants to make developers' journey to the Internet of Things as simple and fast as possible. Nordic's nRF52840 DK or nRF5340 DK is the first choice for many developers to start developing smart home products. With these kits, you can use and test the functionality of all SoCs. The SEGGER J-Link on board can achieve programming, debugging, and even RTOS aware debugging during debugging. Both kits are compatible with Arduino Uno Rev3 hardware, so they can be connected to the device casing.

Since its establishment in 1983, Nordic Semiconductor has been committed to the research and development, design, and sales of wireless IoT system level chips, and has pioneered ultra-low power wireless technology, becoming a leader in the field of wireless technology. Nowadays, Nordic's low-power Bluetooth solution is widely used in the field of the Internet of Things, including smart home devices, wireless PC peripherals, games, sports and fitness, mobile phone accessories, consumer electronics, toys, healthcare, and automation products, due to its high-performance and easy to design characteristics.
