AeroComm enhances ZigBee transceivers
Furthermore, the company has developed the lowest cost ZigBee Module on the market, the ZB2430-D. Targeted at high volume, cost-sensitive, short-range applications where reliable battery-powered communication is paramount, ZB2430-D is the industrys first sub-$10 ZigBee module.
Manufacturers have made it clear that cost and range are the two critical elements in their wireless industrial automation projects, said Michael Varady, AeroComms CTO. The introduction of our cutting-edge ZB2430 products extends our leadership position in the ZigBee marketplace while providing our customers with the broadest RF module offering, at the most competitive prices.
Based on the Texas Instruments 802.15.4 System-on-Chip and Z-Stack technology, ZB2430 targets secure, low power, mesh network applications. It communicates in the 2.4GHz ISM band, making it ideal for OEMs preferring to standardize on one global platform for their end product needs.
Modules are offered as either Coordinators & Routers or End-Devices. Network scan, auto-configuration, dynamic routing, discovery, and security enable the mesh networkdelivering reliable redundancy, secure multi-communication nodes and long range performance. Embedded flash memory of 128 KB provides room for larger, more complex application profiles.
AeroComms unique ZigBee Your Way concept allows OEMs to customize and optimize a hardware solution for the specific demands of their applications. Options include provisions for on-board or remote antenna, enhanced receiver sensitivity, enhanced output power, remote radio configuration, surface mount or pluggable modules, to name a few. A helpful, interactive selection guide will be available online this spring.
Comprehensive ZB2430 Developer Kits are currently available from AeroComm and Mouser Electronics. Each Kit will include evaluation boards with multiple configuration options selectable by OEMs to determine the feature set that is best suited for their application.
Based in Kansas, AeroComm has played a major role in the RF industry for over a decade with consistent technological advances in both performance and price. The companys robust proprietary technology, manufacturing and testing guarantee reliable communication, while lower frequencies and fewer parts allow for reduced prices. AeroComm's comprehensive development tools and engineering support help OEMs reduce R&D schedules, expenses and uncertainties while accelerating time to market.
