Matter, New Era of Connection, Introduction & Certification

Matter aims to build a universal IPv6-based communication protocol to make it easier for smart home devices to communicate with each other. The protocol defines the application layer that will be deployed on devices as well as the different link layers to help maintain interoperability. Matter protocol built from the best pieces of existing trustworthy protocols, including Google Weave, Apple HomeKit, and Zigbee.

Matter is using Thread, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet for transport and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for device commissioning to support a host of smart home devices. Any smart home gadgets you have that use these technologies should be able to be bridged into Matter.

Overall, Matter 1.0 simplifies the process of connecting smart home devices and enables seamless communication between them, regardless of their brand or manufacturer.

Matter 1.0 specs already support a variety of common smart home products, including lighting and electrical, HVAC controls, window coverings and shades, safety and security sensors, door locks, media devices including TVs, controllers as both devices and applications, and bridges. Support for security cameras, smart speakers, home appliances and robotic vacuums is already planned for subsequent versions of Matter. With the ecosystem expansion, new use cases and applications are expected to emerge.

Certification Process

Matter Testing


The Matter 1.0 standard launches with test cases and comprehensive test tools for Alliance members and a global certification program including nine authorized test labs who are primed to test not only Matter, but also Matter’s underlying network technologies, Wi-Fi and Thread. Wi-Fi enables Matter devices to interact over a high-bandwidth local network and allows smart home devices to communicate with the cloud. Thread provides an energy efficient and highly reliable mesh network within the home.

Quoted from “ANT Wireless Tech Update 22 July, 2016”

ANT Wireless announced the formal production release of the ANT and concurrent ANT/BLE protocol stacks designed for Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52832 SoC. The S212 (ANT only) and the S332 (concurrent ANT/BLE) are now available for licensing and download at on the nRF52832’s SoftDevices tab.

Developers currently using alpha versions of the S212 or S332 SoftDevices are encouraged to upgrade to the new production ready versions by agreeing to the updated license agreement and incorporating the production ready SoftDevices into their designs.

Note: In a move to simplify the licensing process, ANT Wireless has combined the evaluation terms of use and the commercial terms of use into a single license agreement.
