TI And Airbee Deliver Ultra Low Power, Free 4-Node Zigbee Solution

Helping speed ZigBee and 802.15.4 compliant systems to market, Texas Instruments Incorporated announced the availability of Airbee Wireless’ ZNS-Lite, ZigBee-ready networking stack software for the MSP430 platform of ultra-low power microcontrollers (MCUs).

ZigBee’s wireless, standards-based radio technology addresses the needs of remote monitoring, control and sensor network applications including home control and awareness, building automation, industrial automation, asset management and homeland security.

Based on the MSP430F161x MCU with a Chipcon 802.15.4 radio for receiving and transceiving, TI’s reference design will also include an example application note and PCB layout files. The free 4-node ZNS-Lite software for MSP430 devices will be available via the Airbee Wireless website at www.airbeewireless.com. The software stack includes a “getting started” guide and a programmer’s reference manual. A full version of the Airbee ZNS (protocol stack) software can be purchased directly from Airbee.

A hardware evaluation board (DZ1612) is also available from SoftBaugh Inc. with Airbee’s ZNS-Lite Zigbee software pre-programmed on an MSP430F1612 MCU and also includes a Chipcon CC2420 transceiver and PCB antenna. DZ1612 evaluation boards can be purchased today for $199 at www.softbaugh.com.
