Silicon Laboratories has announced that its high-performance, mixed-signal MCUs now support ONE-NET, an open design standard for low-power wireless applications for residential and small business.

The ONE-NET wireless standard is specifically designed to cost effectively combine low power and a high level of security in a comprehensive design specification distributed royalty-free, accelerating the availability and use of wireless connectivity in a variety of applications.

Silicon Labs' 8bit mixed-signal MCUs integrate analog with a high-speed pipelined 8051 CPU in each device and are suited for low-power wireless applications. Combining high-precision analog peripherals, with a low-current consumption, high-throughput 8051 CPU and up to 128Kbyte of on-chip flash memory, these devices provide the optimal platform for a wide range of wireless automation, industrial, medical and residential monitoring and control applications.

"The Silicon Labs product portfolio of high-performance MCUs is excellent for ONE-NET-based designs, as it integrates cost-efficient 8bit architecture with the high performance needed to support encoding and encryption functions that are integral to our protocol," said James Martin, director for the ONE-NET organization.

Founding members of the ONE-NET design community include Analog Devices, Integration Associates, Micrel Semiconductor, Renesas Technology, RF Monolithics, Semtech Corp. and Threshold Corp.
