Infineon enters the Matter chip market
The AIROC CYW30739 Bluetooth LE & 802.15.4 system on chip (SoC) 96MHz ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller unit with floating point unit and highly optimized memory system across flash, RAM, and ROM to keep the die size and therefore the cost down.
This follows the acquisitionof Cypress Semiconductor and the addition of support for Matter from the Connectivity Standards Alliance (formerly the Zigbee Alliance) 802.15.4, to the Modus development tool in October. Matter is being driven by companies such as Google and Amazon and Infinon is a promoter company on the board of the alliance.

A low-power radio is a key component in low-power multi-protocol systems for robust connections and best user-experience without connection drops. The -95.5dBm LE Rx and -103.5dBm 802.15.4 sensitivity in the SoC supports applications that require extended battery life including smart home, smart building, smart lighting and more. These design techniques and process technology are extremely efficient to help reduce active and idle power.
“With the launch of the AIROC CYW30739 Bluetooth LE & 802.15.4 SoC, Infineon is entering the 802.15.4 market to deliver high-performing, low-power solutions with seamless, secure connectivity to enable more convenient, energy efficient smart homes,” said Sonal Chandrasekharan, Vice President of the Bluetooth product line at Infineon. “Infineon is excited to enter this market with Matter-ready products across our wireless portfolio.”
The CSA includes ASSA ABLOY, Comcast, Espressif Systems, Eve Systems, Grundfos, Huawei, Leedarson, Legrand, Nanoleaf, Nordic Semiconductor, NXP Semiconductors, Qorvo, Resideo, Schlage, Schneider Electric, Signify, Silicon Labs, SmartThings, Somfy, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, Tuya Smart, ubisys, Wulian, and Zumtobel.
Developers can accelerate the deployment of Matter products by accessing Infineon’s software support for Matter in the open-source Matter repository, and additional Matter-specific capabilities in Infineon’s ModusToolbox Software and Tools.
