Qorvo (NASDAQ:QRVO) has introduced a voice-activated radio chip and software for smart home applications. The GP712 radio chip is designed to support multiple communication protocols in a single-chip design. It was introduced earlier this year by GreenPeak Technologies - now Qorvo's Low Power Wireless business - and is now in production.

The chip is intended to be integrated into virtual personal assistants (VPAs) to enable the VPA to respond to voice commands and communicate directly with smart-home devices that use ZigBee and Thread protocols.

Cees Links, general manager of Qorvo's Low Power Wireless business, said: "This new capability allows designers to create more capable voice-controlled smart home assistants that directly support a wider variety of devices and standards. It enhances the user experience, advances the Internet of Things (IoT) and brings us closer to the fully networked home."
