nRFready 2.4GHz RF Smart Remote

Multi-touch 6-axis motion sensing remote control reference design


The nRFready 2.4GHz RF Smart Remote is a complete reference design for a multi-touch / QWERTY keyboard / 6-axis motion sensing remote control. It provides an ideal platform for developing remote controls for internet-enabled TVs and set-top boxes, as well as multi-touch trackpads for computers. The nRF24LE1 SoC combined with the Gazell™ 2.4GHz RF protocol stack ensures a high performance, ultra low-power and cost-efficient, remote control implementation. Our design features a multi-touch enabled trackpad from Synaptics that supports both pointing and clicking as well as a range of multi-touch gestures. 6-axis motion sensing is enabled by highly integrated solutions from Invensense that pack a 3-axis Gyro and 3-axis accelerometer together with an advanced motion-sensing processor. An ultra low-power accelerometer from ST Microelectronics is used for intelligent power management of the remote control and can also be used for other features such as orientation detection.
