Radiocrafts Rolls Out Compact ZigBee Network Module

Radiocrafts AS, a leading provider of compact RF modules, now expand their product line with a compact ZigBee Network Module (ZNM) for use in ZigBee based mesh networks. The ZNM module offers the complete ZigBee network protocol in a small module with an easy to use API interface. By using the new ZNM module, ZigBee applications can be built with minimum effort, reducing time to market.

The RC2300-ZNM module is a compact surface-mounted high performance module measuring only 12.7 x 25.4 x 2.5 mm including EMC shielding and integrated antenna. The module is delivered on tape and reel for volume production.

The module is very easy to use having a UART or SPI interface for serial communication and configuration. The ZigBee application runs in any external controller, communicating with the module by an easy-to-use API. With only 10 API calls, a complete application can be made. The new module supports all features of the ZigBee 2006 standard.

The RC2300-ZNM module is pre-certified for operation under the European, FCC and ARIB radio regulations for license-free use. It operates at 16 channels in the 2.45 GHz frequency band. When used with quarter-wave antennas a line-of-sight range of 250 meter can be achieved. Indoor range is typically 10 – 30 meter. The module is designed for use in battery operated systems using sleep mode with less than 1 uA.
