Today we are pleased to announce support for the new Amazon Common Software (ACS) for Devices with our wireless SoCs and modules, enabling device makers to simplify and accelerate smart home product development. By combining Amazon’s powerful software development kits with our industry-leading wireless technology, designers can easily add connectivity and Alexa functionality to smart home IoT devices, such as LED lights and switches.
ACS provides a unified API integration layer, pre-validated and memory optimized components for common functions such as connectivity, a device porting kit (DPK), and multi-tier test suites to support integration of Amazon Device SDKs, giving developers more time to focus on product functionality.
We are providing Series 2 multiprotocol, Bluetooth® Low Energy and Zigbee® connectivity solutions, software development tools, reference applications and technical expertise, helping device manufacturers easily create connected devices that integrate with Amazon Echo products. Offering connectivity, processing and enhanced security features, Series 2 wireless SoCs and modules are designed to make IoT products more powerful, efficient, secure and reliable.
“As a leader in wireless IoT solutions, we see tremendous value in our expanded work with Amazon to provide a seamless experience for product designers and consumers,” said Matt Johnson, senior vice president and general manager of IoT products at Silicon Labs. “Amazon and Silicon Labs are both advancing smart home solutions for the IoT.”
