What is Matter

Matter is a unified connection protocol based on proven technology and IP to connect and build a reliable and secure IoT ecosystem. This new royalty-free connectivity standard technology enables communication between various smart devices. Matter will also be a mark of approval, proving that products built on this standard are inherently reliable, safe by design, and broadly compatible. In 2019, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, Samsung SmartThings, and the CSA Connectivity Standards Alliance initiated the development and promotion of the new standard, and other alliance board members have since joined, including Boliu, which now has more than 180 Member companies of all sizes and in a variety of business categories, as well as more than 1,700 individual member representatives, are involved in bringing Matter technical specifications, reference implementations, test tools and certification programs into practice.

Why use Matter

Matter is designed to make it easy for developers to create secure and reliable solutions. If you want your product to be interoperable with major smart home ecosystems, Matter is the way to go. With Matter, consumers and businesses have the freedom to choose the brands they want to use in their smart home or commercial building, with confidence that they will work together seamlessly. Home users, especially those with multiple smart home devices (such as smart locks, ventilation systems or smart speakers, etc.), can easily add Matter-marked new devices with simple steps to integrate them with their existing smart homes. The system is connected as one. Matter is not only a technical specification, but also provides an open source reference implementation. This brings tangible benefits to developers, including faster time-to-market, reduced reliance on a single-vendor protocol stack, improved quality with the ability to test multiple use cases, and improved security due to full transparency to the developer community , because developers can identify vulnerabilities and submit patches in a timely manner.

Bouffalolab deeply embraces Matter

As an early participant and contributor to the Matter ecosystem, Boliu Intelligence is one of the few suppliers that can provide complete chip-level solutions. The mature chip solutions and development plans displayed by Boliu also fully reflect Boliu's determination to deeply embrace the Matter ecosystem.

At present, the chips that Boliu has supported the Matter protocol include:

  • BL602-based Wi-Fi Matter
  • Thread Matter based on BL702
  • Border Router based on BL706+BL602
  • The Matter Bridge based on BL706+BL602 is used to connect Zigbee devices based on BL702 to Matter network
  • In 2022, BL606P / BL616 / BL618 and other multi-mode interconnect protocol series chips based on highly integrated Wi-Fi6, BLE, Zigbee/Thread, and AI audio and video technologies will be launched. One chip can support all Matter protocol.
