The nRFready Smart Remote 3 reference design from Nordic Semiconductor is said to make the development of advanced Bluetooth Smart remotes as easy as clicking on a list of check box options. Besides making designing easy this remote control is what you call feature-packed with state-of-the-art voice input and speech recognition control, a 6-axis motion sensing ‘Air-mouse’, multi-touch trackpad technology, plus 39 developer-programable buttons and legacy IR hardware support to control IR-only products.
The Bluetooth remote control, based on the manufacturer's nRF51822 System-on-Chip (SoC), is designed to work as an add-on for Nordic’s existing nRF51 Development Kit.
Compared to the previous v2, the new design has a more robust wireless link and consumes 20% less power. A configuration Wizard that works in the Keil development environment has refined the developer element down to a list of check-boxes that allow every parameter of the remote to be configured and fine-tuned.
