ubisys Opens Business as Zigbee 3.0 Stack Vendor
Düsseldorf/Las Vegas, January 6, 2016. Today, at CES 2016, the renowned German manufacturer of quality Zigbee products, ubisys technologies GmbH, announced immediate availability of its premium Zigbee 3.0 stack for licensing.

“We have put a lot of passion and top-notch engineering in our feature-rich, field-proven Zigbee solution, which has recently been awarded the prestigious ‘Zigbee Golden Unit’ designation for both, the Zigbee 2015 core stack and the latest update to Zigbee Green Power feature. Being the first commercially available platform for building Zigbee 3.0 products with integral support for Green Power makes us particularly proud”, noted Dr.-Ing. Arasch Honarbacht, lead R&D, founder and co-owner of ubisys.

Work on this stack started in 2008, after initial trials with Zigbee implementations in 2005 revealed significant shortcomings of existing platforms. After many years of development, field experience and feedback from consumers with constant enhancements and improvements over time, the ubisys Zigbee stack has reached a level of maturity, robustness and performance that makes it an outstanding Zigbee 3.0 solution.

Brand-named Compact7B™, this Zigbee stack is built on top of ubisys CompactFramework™, a lean bare-metal OS, and includes Compact15.4™, an implementation of the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC layer with specific extensions and optimizations for bidirectional Zigbee Green Power infrastructure devices. It is the first and only truly object-oriented Zigbee implementation for 32-bit ARM controllers from PHY/MAC to application end-point objects. “We’re bringing the power, performance and elegance of C++ to the Zigbee world, making product development on this rock-solid foundation for Internet-of-Things applications a snap”, Honarbacht explained.

The stack currently supports ARM7TDMI and Cortex-M4 SAM controllers by Atmel in combination with the CC2520 radio from Texas Instruments, with support for single-chip platforms in the makings. “Being independent of silicon vendors is an important benefit for our customers and ourselves in order to guarantee long-term availability and protect investments in firmware designs”, he underlined. This gives product designers the ability to scale their application controllers from tiny Cortex-M0 with small amounts of flash and RAM to powerful Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4 and even Cortex-M7 with plenty of RAM, flash, and rich peripherals that perfectly suit overall product requirements.

“We have been using this stack for many years in our own range of products including gateways, USB dongles, dimmers, smart power outlets, window covering controllers and other equipment that runs 24/7, 365, unattended and maintenance-free. Now, we’re entering the next stage, making this state-of-the-art technology available to other companies, thereby enabling a wave of even better Zigbee products to further strengthen the Zigbee ecosystem”, Honarbacht concluded, who is a current voting member of the Zigbee PRO Technical Steering Committee and Vice-chairman of the Core Stack Working Group within Zigbee Alliance.

The program starts immediately with offerings for high-volume Zigbee product manufacturers and silicon vendors and will later be addressing medium to small businesses as well.
