InnoPhase IoT Integrated Ultra-Low Power Wi-Fi and Matter v1.2 Certification on a Single-Chip Solution

Matter-Enabled Wi-Fi SoC Supports Device Interoperability

June 26, 2024
InnoPhase IoT integrated ultra-low-power Wi-Fi and Matter v1.2 certification on a single chip to support interoperable smart-home devices.

What you’ll learn:

  • Details about the Talaria TWO Matter v1.2 certified Wi-Fi solution.
  • How the Talaria TWO serves cloud-based IoT applications.

 

To address smart-home IoT applications such as Wi-Fi-enabled smart locks, lighting, thermostats, and sensors, InnoPhase IoT recently announced the availability of its Talaria TWO Matter v1.2 certified Wi-Fi solution. The single-chip SoC device uses the Matter protocol to ensure vendor-independent device compatibility as well as easy setup and operation. The solution offers up to a 4X improvement in battery life and provisioning via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) while providing high levels of security.

Offering a standalone operation provides the most power, size, and cost-efficient option, customers can also use an external MCU host. This would offload Matter protocol processing onto the Talaria TWO SoC so that developers can use MCU processing and memory resources for custom purposes. One can also select a Cortex-M0 to Cortex-M85-based processor appropriate for the application.

The Talaria TWO solution enables a Matter-over-lowest-power Wi-Fi approach, rather than Matter-over-Thread, eliminating the need for a bridge border router.

A full-stack software development kit uses FreeRTOS and provides edge-to-cloud software for custom IoT applications, with a GCC toolchain and an eclipse-based IDE for software development. It also includes Matter reference application profiles for smart lighting and door locks, with support for Amazon’s AWS and Microsoft Azure platforms.

In addition, there's a standalone Talaria TWO Evaluation Kit, along with reference designs combining Talaria TWO modules with the Nuvoton M251 and Nuvoton M2354 MCU series hosts. The solution is scalable to other MCUs through a HAPI interface between Talaria TWO and MCU hosts.

“Nuvoton is excited to be working with InnoPhase IoT to deliver Matter 1.2 solutions,” said Chad Wu, Nuvoton's Vice President of the Microcontroller Business Group. “Combining Nuvoton’s highly secure NuMicro microcontrollers and microprocessors with InnoPhase IoT’s ultra-low-power Talaria TWO Wi-Fi/BLE modules in a Matter reference design notably speeds up market entry for smart-home device customers, enabling a rapid launch advantage.“

Wiren Perera, InnoPhase IoT President and COO, added, “Achieving Matter 1.2 certification is a game-changer in secure device connectivity, ensuring that smart-home devices work together seamlessly. Our Talaria TWO delivers Wi-Fi at ultra-low power levels synonymous with shorter range technologies, unleashing truly untethered secure IoT devices.

"Next, it was important to provide manufacturer and ecosystem-independent interoperability for consumers. A scalable Matter 1.2 certified capability addresses this challenge for a wide range of smart-home applications from appliances through entertainment and comfort to utilities and services.”
