News - Teardown: Nest Protect |
about 3 months ago
I’ll almost give the designer the benefit of the doubt on the EM357, but I’m sure they could have used a dumb Zigbee module and the K60 would have been able to handle it.
I agree, that K60 is way more than powerful enough do everything. I’ve done more than what this gizmo needs to do with much less cpu power and resources. I just can imagine any functionality on this thing that requires a dedicated processor. I’ll be interested in seeing how these components are “wired up” I hope the detailed treardown is revealing.
I built a security device that continously monitored and decoded raw noisy output from a very simple OOK RF receiver, spoke, like this thing does using an ISD chip , monitored DC voltage, battery voltage, and and drove a very simple 300 baud modem chip including bespoke ring and line detection using just a PIC16C66 8K words OTP, 368B RAM running at 4 MHz.
Maybe the second processor is an intelligent Watch Dog. This is a piece of safety equipment.

Any datasheets on this stuff? Light output? Any other form factors? I could see some very cool addressable dot-matrix block formats for this stuff, or 7/14 segment, etc. etc.

These guys dressed up like that so I could get a Sperho?
That’s what I call taking one for the team.
I said dress like a Geek, not a Freak!
Next up, we’ll show you our moves like Jagger.
We’ve got the Joy, Joy, Joy down in our hearts.
There’s hope for anything at the rescue shelter.
We had to do it to keep our jobs.
No public wish lists :(
