Wi-Fi semiconductor developer GainSpan is sampling its family of GS2000 chips and modules. The GS2000 is a single chip that brings together two IEEE low power standard mobile technologies including Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and ZigBee IP (802.15.4). The Wi-Fi/ZigBee IP chips are targeted for the connected home, smart energy, metering, healthcare and high-speed audio, video and security applications. By incorporating Wi-Fi and ZigBee, which support both IPv4 and IPv6 devices, the GS2000 extends IP connectivity. Wi-Fi brings local connectivity to smartphones and remote connectivity through the internet. It uses installed base of Wi-Fi access points and hotspots. ZigBee IP extends the reach of IP to more battery operated devices, through the use of smaller channelisation and meshing. The GS2000 contains multi-standard RF as well as both 802.11b/g/n and 802.15.4 PHY/MAC functionality, dual ARM Cortex-M3 processors, networking stack and services and large memory size to support various application profiles. It supports Wi-Fi, WLAN software, ZigBee IP, which is based upon 6LoWPAN and IP based addressing and methods over both 802.11 and 802.15.4 mobile standards.
