One of the main challenges currently facing the IoT market is to achieve interoperability across the vast ecosystem of smart devices and manufacturers. The key solution to this problem is a shared software platform, utilized and maintained by chipset vendors and consumer product companies, in a collaborative environment. This joint effort will greatly reduce compatibility issues and simplify development for manufacturers, while providing the opportunity to optimize R&D costs and decrease time to market for products.
DSR Corporation will share its market-proven ZBOSS stack source-code base with ZOI members and provide all the necessary, modern tools and support to make it easier for participating companies to integrate new chips and consumer products. Joined efforts will allow for the development of a unified software platform for Zigbee®-enabled smart devices and make it the most interoperable solution on the market.
ZBOSS is a Zigbee Alliance certified, hardware agnostic, cross-platform, high-performance Zigbee® software protocol stack developed by DSR Corporation. ZBOSS features cross-platform support, multi-tasking, fixed memory footprint, OS-less configuration, and easy-to-use API. It is an official Zigbee® stack for Nordic Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor and also supports multiple SoCs, MCUs and transceivers from Texas Instruments, Silicon Labs, Qorvo, ARM, Telink, UBEC, Microchip, and other chip vendors. Moreover, multiple Zigbee® 3.0 certified products are powered by ZBOSS. Over 200 smart devices from more than 40 vendors were tested successfully for interoperability with ZBOSS.
With validation and support from several silicon vendors and product companies, DSR Corporation is excited to launch ZOI on February 7th, 2020, but interested parties can join before the official launch by contacting DSR Corporation. ZOI is just one of the steps to provide a common Zigbee® PRO software platform to address the current market needs.
