DSR Corporation announces that Espressif, a multinational, fabless semiconductor company focused on developing cutting-edge wireless communication, low-power, AIoT solutions, has joined the ZBOSS Open Initiative (ZOI). This is a community of companies with a shared understanding about the value of community, when it comes to building and maintaining a Zigbee® PRO software platform. The aim of this community is to jointly overcome the challenges surrounding interoperability, security, testing, and optimization of Zigbee®-enabled products and solutions. ZOI’s member-driven, non-open-source approach helps maintain performance and quality over time, while providing its members with access to the latest developments in Zigbee features and improvements.

DSR Corporation's CEO, Anatoli Pechkov, said about Espressif joining ZOI: “We are very excited to welcome Espressif into the ZOI fold and to support Espressif’s first Zigbee chipset offering. The ZOI membership continues to grow quickly, to the benefit of all members, with each additional member company contributing their unique expertise to the community and the future of the ZBOSS stack. ZOI’s unique, community approach to stack maintenance and development is ever stronger with industry leaders like Espressif. We know that ZBOSS and the ZOI community are a perfect fit for bringing Espressif’s first Zigbee offering to their global customer base.”

Espressif’s Founder and CEO, Teo Swee Ann, said on this occasion: “Espressif is looking forward to joining the ZOI community, and building an interoperable Zigbee ecosystem with other ZOI member companies. By leveraging the strengths of the market-tested ZBOSS platform, Espressif will provide its customers with reliable AIoT solutions that will accelerate their Zigbee product development. Through our continuous dedication to developing fast, secure and green AIoT technology, we, at Espressif, aim to create a smart-connected world for everyone.”

ZOI continues to grow at a steady pace. The combined efforts of ZOI members continues to further the development of a unified software platform for Zigbee®-enabled smart devices, making it the most interoperable solution on the market. ZOI member companies benefit from focusing on their product features, rather than focusing on supporting new feature development for the underlying protocol stack. Instead, the stack-related needs and concerns of ZOI member companies help to steer the development roadmap for ZBOSS.
