2008-11-03 What’s required for RF4CE?
The main advantage of the radio protocol is that it ensures interoperability between remote controls and A/V devices that IR never achieved. The protocol’s upper layers are defined specifically for remote control, while the lower layers (including PHY) use IEEE 802.15.4, where ZigBee and 6LowPAN are also based. IEEE 802.15.4 is used in many proprietary protocols in both consumer and industrial markets.
