Daintree Networks Inc. and Marvell Semiconductor Inc. have collaborated to offer open-standard ZigBee wireless capability integrated into smart lighting products. The team up is focused initially on using Marvell semiconductor products to enable integrated wireless LED drivers that allow LED fixtures to interoperate with Daintree's open-standard ControlScope solution, stated the firms.

Fixture manufacturers using integrated open-standard wireless LED drivers will gain access to expanding revenue opportunities in commercial and industrial wireless lighting.

By implementing integrated wireless LED drivers, fixture manufacturers eliminate the need for a separate wireless adapter commonly used in today's deployments of commercial wireless lighting control. Installation is also easier with integrated wireless drivers. Drivers are pre-installed during factory fixture assembly, eliminating more expensive field assembly often required when connecting separate wireless adapters to standard drivers. Integration dramatically reduces total equipment, installation and commissioning project costs by $75 to $100 per fixture, enabling rapid market adoption of wireless control solutions by building owners and operators.

Unlike existing analogue control, integrated digital wireless control allows users to experience the full potential of LED lighting and energy management. This includes the ability to add advanced LED control features such as tunable white colour control and granular device-level power and performance monitoring.

Daintree and Marvell will be exhibiting an end-to-end LED ZigBee wireless lighting control solution that includes Daintree's ControlScope system and Orama's OCC20W-Z LED driver built with Marvell's 88EM8801 LED driver and 88MZ100 wireless MCU. Orama's integrated wireless ZigBee LED driver will be commercially released at the end of 2Q13.
