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.

Satisfied Clients

“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.”

What`s Inside

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.

Worldwide Acceptance

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.

Migrating Legacy Systems

With IBC fast approaching, you are probably already considering that you’ll return from the show with a list of new features and requests from your existing customers and prospects. We know that not every company has the resource pool to handle the volume of software changes necessary to secure the desired orders, and DSR is here to help. With nearly 20 years of experience in helping vendors build software, we truly understand how to listen, define and manage projects, and implement solutions that work in the media & entertainment industry.

Many companies are considering porting existing applications to the cloud in order to increase automation, enable innovation, and reduce operational costs. However, migrating legacy media services and applications poses a variety of technical issues including trouble with porting codecs and methods from a desktop environment to a more distributed, service-oriented environment. On some occasions, this can be more complex than moving from linear threading to multi-threading with worker thread separation from data sources, service identification, availability publication, and service management. Working with a company like DSR that has experience in building and porting applications to web services can substantially ease your burden.

Legacy Migration Process:

DSR acts as a partner, which sets us apart from other companies. We take the time to truly understand your existing application, and are then able to take what we learn to help you move forward. While moving forward is different for everyone, DSR has the technical expertise under its belt to address any challenges that may arise. DSR will be with you step-by-step through your unique migration.

We have extensive expertise in this industry, having worked with major clients like Sony, Quantum, and Netflix, as well as with companies like XenData, Brightcove, and many others.
