Semtech Announces Support for ONE-NET Initiative

May 10, 2007

The company joins the development community in backing the new low-power open wireless standard, which is optimized for residential and small-business applications.

CAMARILLO, CA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Semtech Corp., a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, announced that it supports ONE-NET, an independent, user-supported development community committed to open standards for low-power wireless devices.

Semtech's technology and expertise have contributed to the development of the newly introduced ONE-NET standard for low-power wireless connectivity. Optimized for residential and small-business control applications, the ONE-NET standard is specifically designed to use low power and provide good security at a low cost. ONE-NET's participant companies have brought together their collective expertise to develop the standard's comprehensive design specification, which will be distributed royalty-free so that more consumers can enjoy the benefits of wireless connectivity.

The ONE-NET community has developed and made public its specifications for the physical and networking protocol, source code examples for microcontrollers, schematics and bill of materials for reference designs, and links to ONE-NET suppliers. Use of the ONE-NET standard is royalty-free, and simple open-source licensing rules apply, such as contributing to the code base as modifications are developed. The ONE-NET logo will identify products tested for interoperability and compliance with the standard.

Semtech is a leading provider of wireless transmitter and transceiver solutions for personal area networks and home and building automation networks. These ultra-low-power, low-voltage products connect people and the physical world. Semtech is highlighting its XE1205 wireless transceiver as a best-in-class solution for the ONE-NET community. The XE1205 is a highly integrated transceiver operating in the industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) frequency bands, or in the 300-1000 MHz range. The device offers the highest link-budget BiCMOS UHF-band FSK transceiver in the world, with data rates exceeding 300 Kbps and narrowband capability. Semtech's complete range of wireless solutions deliver voice, pressure, temperature, acceleration, time, position, speed, and other analog inputs through wireless links, ranging from meters to in excess of 10 kilometers, while delivering data/commands to sensors and actuators to perform the desired function in personal or local networks.

"ONE-NET offers great value to consumers because it delivers a secure, low-power wireless standard optimized for battery-powered operation—a move that we believe will grow the market for wireless devices," said Robert Whittaker, ISM Product Group Manager for Semtech's Wireless and Sensing Products Business Unit. "The benefits of the ONE-NET protocol are a perfect match for Semtech's family of wireless devices because they bring small size, high functionality, low power consumption, and low system cost to allow customers to take full advantage of the rapidly evolving market for wireless home automation and remote security products."
