Zensys Clarifies Chip Cost

4/25/2005 01:15:00 PM Eastern

Upper Saddle River, N.J. — Zensys’ second-generation chipset for wireless home automation systems is even less expensive than previously reported.

Zensys’ new Z-Wave chip costs $3, not $4. The $4 price includes Zensys’ “total integrated solution,” a spokeswoman said.

Nonetheless, the chip is still about half the price of the first-generation version and will help suppliers lower the price of finished products by up to a third. It requires only 10 percent of the power of the first-generation chipset.

The first-generation chip shipped in 2002 and currently appears in more than 40 wireless home control and automation products at prices starting at $35, the company said.
