Silicon Labs to show smart interface, smart home and smart energy solutions at Embedded World 2011.

Addressing the embedded market demand for smart interface and connectivity solutions, Silicon Laboratories will highlight its latest semiconductor innovations at Embedded World 2011 in Nuremburg, Germany.

The company will demonstrate embedded mixed-signal IC products, development tools, and reference designs to streamline the development of touchless human interface, home automation, wireless security, remote keyless entry and energy harvesting applications.

Silicon Labs will offer an array of hands-on demonstrations of its mixed-signal solutions and visitors can discover the ease-of-use and versatility of Silicon Labs’ plug-and-play HID-USB-to-IR human interface reference design that demonstrates advanced multi-dimensional touchless control through simple, pre-defined gestures, supported infrared proximity sensors and HID-USB connectivity.

The QuickSense Studio will also be demonstrated. This easy-to-use powerful development environment allows engineers to create buttons, sliders and other HI elements for advanced touch-sense and touchless human interfaces.

Visitors to the stand can also connect with the future of scalable, small-footprint wireless mesh networks based on Silicon Labs’ Si10xx wireless MCUs providing an ultra-low-power solution for smart metering, building automation, home security, commercial lighting control, asset tracking systems and other wireless networking applications.

It will also be possible to learn how to add USB and HID-USB support to applications, or upgrade legacy serial applications with USB connectivity, without the cost and complexity of driver installation or software development.

Also on display will be Silicon Labs’ wireless remote control solution; the Si4010 RF transmitter SoC. This provides a highly integrated, cost-effective solution for remote keyless entry (RKE) and remote controls for home automation and wireless security systems.

Furthermore, engineers can design next-generation energy-harvesting applications with Silicon Labs’ wireless MCUs, ultra-low-power MCUs, and sub-GHz ISM band transmitters, receivers and transceivers. Using thin-film battery technology, the company’s reference designs simplify the development of energy-harvesting systems that tap into solar, thermal, piezo and RF energy sources.
