Development platform for new ZigBee features
22 February 2017, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless

Microchip Technology has become the industry’s first semiconductor company to introduce a ZigBee Alliance certified ZigBee platform with ZigBee PRO and Green Power features, formerly known as ZigBee 3.0. With greater interoperability and lower latency than ever before, this software stack, and corresponding BitCloud 4.0 software development kit, is ideal for the design of home automation, commercial lighting, smart energy and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The ZigBee certified solution enables cross-functional device support and will be backward-compatible with existing ZigBee certified products for seamless interoperability. Together with the ZigBee PRO (2015) feature set, developers can expect to find features such as low latency suitable for RF remote applications, mesh networking for large networks such as lighting applications, and the Green Power benefits of an energy harvesting switch.

The ZigBee PRO Green Power feature, making its début on the new certified software stack, enables batteryless devices to securely join a network while leveraging eco-friendly energy sources such as light, vibration or motion. Additionally, ZigBee Light Link and ZigBee Home Automation device types are now fully supported.

To bring ZigBee designs to market faster, Microchip offers the BitCloud 4.0 software development kit (SDK). The SDK enables application development on the SAM R21 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit, a Cortex M0+-based 32-bit microcontroller with an integrated 2,4 GHz, 802.15.4 compliant radio. When used with the newly certified software stack, the SDK provides a complete ZigBee certified development platform.
