Unify SDK eases IoT wireless interoperability

25 August 2021 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Silicon Labs has unveiled its Unify software development kit (SDK), which provides the common building blocks for connectivity across IoT ecosystems. IoT cloud and platform developers will be able to design world-class capabilities into their devices and gateways with full confidence that those products will interoperate across current and emerging wireless protocols.

The Unify SDK will offer ready-made, protocol-specific translations for Z-Wave and Zigbee (available today) with plans for Bluetooth, Thread, OpenSync and Matter, simplifying IoT wireless network interoperability and supporting companies as they scale smart home, city, building and industry ecosystems.

More than 15 million IoT gateway products developed using Silicon Labs’ Series 1 and Series 2 wireless solutions, which are at the core of the new Unify SDK, will be Matter-compatible once it is approved for market availability. Similarly, companies can choose to develop IoT products using the SDK for existing wireless protocols, including Zigbee and Z-Wave and later leverage it to easily activate Matter network communication on their product portfolios when the timing is right.

Unify SDK simplifies and speeds development by providing a common, well-defined data model API and status definitions for commonly used IoT services, such as adding, updating and removing a device. The protocol drivers translate the common IoT services into protocol-specific formats, such as Zigbee and Z-Wave. Unify SDK eases interoperability between wireless IoT protocols by delivering a modular and extensible set of software components provided as source code.

A wide range of IoT applications stand to benefit from Unify SDK including gateways, wireless access points, hubs, bridges and host processor-based end products (e.g. smart speakers, thermostats, smoke alarms and cameras). Using Unify SDK, IoT developers can focus on their core applications and get their products to market faster and more economically.
