DSR Corporation's ZBOSS Stack Positions Nordic Semiconductor Multi-Procol SOC for Product Success
Denver, CO, January 02, 2019 --(PR.com)-- DSR Corporation (DSR) today announces its partnership with Nordic Semiconductor, to bring the power of Zigbee to more developers around the world. DSR’s ZBOSS 3.0 Zigbee 3.0 software stack is now a part of the Nordic Semiconductor offering for the multiprotocol nRF52840 SoC. The licensed by Nordic Semiconductor ZBOSS software was formally certified by the Zigbee Alliance back in September 2018 as a Zigbee 3.0 compliant platform.

“We are very satisfied with the choice of the Zigbee 3.0 solution vendor for our nRF52840 multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC),” says Nordic’s Pär Håkansson, Strategic Marketing Manager. “DSR Corporation has proven itself as a highly reliable partner, working closely with Nordic to make joint production quality software. We appreciate DSR’s professionalism, teamwork and extensive experience in software engineering and Zigbee to help us deliver a new solution to the market that will broaden Zigbee reach around the world.”

“Working with Nordic Semiconductor provides DSR a unique opportunity to deliver its production quality software with one of the market leaders, giving a wide range of developers worldwide access to work with a proven solution for Zigbee. The nRF52840 addresses important uses cases for the IoT and connectivity market and helps further unify IoT industry by combining multiple wireless technologies on a single chip to control wider range of devices. DSR is really excited to be part of this development and appreciates Nordic’s team level of professionalism to build quality software for the market,” says Anatoli Pechkov, CEO of DSR Corporation.

nRF52840 is designed around an Arm® Cortex-M4 CPU with floating Point unit (FPU) and provides the ability to support complex and demanding applications as a single chip solution. It offers a wealth of peripherals and security paramount in today's IoT designs. Implementation of Zigbee in the nRF52840 SoC expands Nordic’s already broad portfolio of mesh networking solutions for smart home, industrial, and enterprise industry.

ZBOSS 3.0 from DSR is a cross-platform, high-performance Zigbee 3.0 software protocol stack implementing Zigbee 3.0. ZBOSS 3.0 is highly interoperable software and has been used as a Zigbee Pro compliant platform for several Zigbee chipset solutions. This is a market-proven product used to provide interoperability between 200 products for more than 40 companies. ZBOSS 3.0 allows all device roles and has extensive support for various cluster libraries. User-friendly, high-level API supports fast creation of applications on a predictable budget. Built with a fixed memory footprint, ZBOSS does not use dynamic memory allocation, which leads to predictable memory budgeting. Another important stack feature is optimized power consumption: ZBOSS interrupt-driven I/O improves battery consumption and excludes polling. Additionally, ZBOSS utilizes low RAM capacity on the target device with a special technique in handling data structures.
