Nordic Chooses DSR & Wins
DSR Corporation announces its partnership with Nordic Semiconductor. DSR’s ZBOSS 3.0 Zigbee 3.0 software stack is part of the Nordic offering for the multiprotocol nRF53840 SoC. ZBOSS software was formally certificated by the Zigbee Alliance in September of 2018 as a Zigbee 3.0 compliant platform.
“We are very satisfied with the choice of the Zigbee 3.0 solution vendor for our nRF52840 multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC),” says Nordic’s Pär Håkansson, Strategic Marketing Manager. “DSR Corporation has proven itself as a highly reliable partner, working closely with Nordic to make joint production quality software. We appreciate DSR’s professionalism, teamwork and extensive experience in software engineering and Zigbee to help us deliver a new solution to the market that will broaden Zigbee reach around the world.”
nRF52840 is designed around an Arm® Cortex-M4 CPU with floating Point unit (FPU) and provides the ability to support complex and demanding applications as a single chip solution. Implementation of Zigbee in the nRF52840 SoC expands Nordic’s already broad portfolio of mesh networking solutions for smart home, industrial, and enterprise industry.
DSR’s ZBOSS 3.0 is a cross-platform, high-performance Zigbee 3.0 software protocol stack implementing Zigbee 3.0. ZBOSS 3.0 is highly interoperable and has been used as a Zigbee Pro compliant platform for several chipset solutions. ZBOSS 3.0 is a market-proven product that is used to provide interoperability between 200+ products at more than 40 companies. ZBOSS 3.0 allows all devices roles and provides extensive support for various cluster libraries. User-friendly, high-level APIs support fast creation of applications on a predictable budget. Built with a fixed memory footprint, ZBOSS does not use dynamic memory allocation, which leads to predictable memory budgeting. Lastly, an important stack feature is optimized power consumption: ZBOSS interrupt-driven I/O improves battery consumption and excludes polling. Additionally, ZBOSS utilizes low RAM capacity on the target device with a special technique in handling data structures.
Following the launch of this product, we are happy to announce that Nordic’s advanced Bluetooth® 5/Thread 1.1/Zigbee PRO solution won “2018 Product of the Year”. The nRF52840 chip was named winner of the “RF/Microwave” category by Electronic Products Magazine, which has been an industry icon for more than 40 years. We are both excited for Nordic and honored that they selected us as a trusted technology partner.
