Petzila Selects Marvell's EZ-Connect(TM) to Power Their Latest Pet Technology, PetziConnect

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Dec 16, 2014 -- Petzila, a pioneer of the pet tech sector and protagonist to the Internet of Pet Things throne, has announced they have selected the Marvell® MC200+8782 Wi-Fi microcontroller module and Marvell's EZ-Connect™ software platform to support PetziConnect™, an ingenious way for pet lovers to interact with their pets anytime, from anywhere.

Already shipping for the Holidays, PetziConnect, allows pet parents to ('see') video, ('treat') dispense treats, ('speak') audio and ('snap') take pictures & videos of their pets remotely using any internet enabled smart device. Marvell's microcontroller module and SDK support PetziConnect's cloud video and audio streaming, Web services, and bi-directional command and control features. An ultra-fast consumer Wi-Fi set up is also facilitated by Marvell's EZ-Connect platform, providing an important point of difference to PetziConnect as one of the first pet lifestyle products to enter the home market.

The PetziConnect dispensing mechanism consists of eight uniquely engineered design elements that ensure a mutually-rewarding remote-treat experience. PetziConnect's patent-pending firmware-controlled electronic-electro-mechanical design takes the widest range of treats in the world so that pet gets the treats they love.

"Marvell's technology provides powerful support to PetziConnect," said Simon Milner, CTO at Petzila. "When seeking a vendor, Marvell's leadership in IoT proved invaluable. We selected the Company's products because of their low power, small memory footprint and comprehensive SDK. We look forward to extending our relationship with Marvell further."

Designed to create playful, mutually rewarding interaction that brightens the days of pets and their pet parents, PetziConnect features a smooth, clean design for seamless integration into the home. The easy to install device simply connects to the home WiFi and contains an HD camera, high-quality audio and the ability to dispense your pet's favorite treat at the touch of a button via the PetziConnect app.

Marvell's EZ-Connect Software is field proven and provides production-ready software for industry standard communication protocols. Complete with easy-to-use software development kits (SDKs) and application programming interfaces (APIs), the EZ-Connect Software enables developers to leverage the full potential of a built-in microcontroller on the SoC solutions.

Key features of the PetziConnect Treat Dispenser include:

Pet Tech is one of the fastest growing sectors of the US pet industry which is expected to exceed $60 Billion in 2015. PetziConnect is the first product from Petzila, a founding pioneer of the space who will also shortly be launching the world's most unique and engaging social "petwork" as well announcing game changing partnerships in the first quarter of 2015.
