GS2000: Ultra Low-Power 802.11b/g/n + 802.15.4 Single Chip

The GS2000 is a highly integrated ultra-low power WLAN and WPAN system on a chip (SoC) which contains an 802.11b/g/n and 802.15.4 (ZigBee IP) radio, media access controller (MAC), baseband processor, on-chip memory, and a networking applications processor all on a single silicon die.

The GS2000 provides ultra-low power consumption for years of battery life, and comes complete with embedded software stacks offering a highly scalable, reliable, manageable and secure wireless link to meet the growing demand of wireless sensor networks utilizing broadly accepted IEEE 802.11 and 802.15.4 standards. This solution is ideal for use in smart energy, healthcare/fitness, consumer appliances, consumer/commercial automation, control, and monitoring applications. In addition, GS2000 provides capabilities such as location awareness which makes it well-suited for logistics and supply chain applications involving people or asset tracking.
