Networking & Connectivity

At the heart of a smart home is the gateway that interconnects all of the devices within it - smart thermostats, smart lighting, security surveillance - and enables the home owner to monitor and control the capabilities enabled by these devices. To interface with a wide range of end devices, the gateway supports many different protocols and connectivity options including Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), 2.4GHz radio, WiFi, and protocols such as Thread for mesh networking.

NXP is leading supplier of multicore solutions for home gateway applications with single, dual and quad core communications processors, and production-ready market-proven software solutions based on OpenWRT.

Automation & Security

Whether it be a series of lights you can control with your phone, or various smoke detectors, or even a security system that sends images to your tablet - adding smarts to your home can help save energy, increase safety and make life more convenient.

If the smart devices are equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC), commissioning can be as simple as a single tap. With more and more devices talking to each other in the home, however, security becomes especially critical. It also gets more complex as you begin to manage end devices via different wireless connectivity protocols and interfaces. From the edge of the network to the gateway and the cloud, NXP’s broad portfolio of solutions - from multicore communications processors to MCUs to NFC ICs - helps to ensure the devices you design are communicating effectively, and protected.

Smart Health & Wearables

Smart glasses, smart watches, fitness trackers, wrist bands - wearable devices are making a big impact on healthcare. From checking heart rate and respiration to tracking physical activity and accessing patient records, wearable devices improve the management of various medical conditions and improve patient engagement. The majority of wearable devices are sensor-infused, reading biometric data off the body and connecting to computers or smart devices to get a better understanding of their body or immediate environment. Designers need to take into account several key criteria when designing wearable technology:

  • Securing data for patient/user confidentiality
  • Ensuring device/technology is safe and able to be in close contact to users
  • Battery life
  • Connecting and communicating information on health and wellness of a patient/user
