Atmel SDK for ZigBee PRO achieves Golden Unit status

14 October 2015 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Atmel’s BitCloud ZigBee PRO Software Development Kit (SDK) has achieved the prestigious Golden Unit status for the ZigBee PRO r21 standard. As such, it will be used by ZigBee test houses to verify standard compliancy for all future ZigBee 3.0 products. This guarantees interoperability for Atmel customers designing the latest connected lighting, security and comfort control products for smart home applications.

With improved security, interoperability and ease-of-use, the SDK provides a comprehensive set of tools to quickly design and develop wireless products compliant to ZigBee LightLink and ZigBee Home Automation profiles, as well as the upcoming ZigBee 3.0 standard. The kit includes full-featured reference applications, ZigBee PRO stack libraries and API, and user documentation. It implements a reliable, scalable and secure wireless solution that supports large mesh networks of hundreds of devices, and is optimised for ultra-low power consumption with up to 15 years battery life.

BitCloud ZigBee PRO SDK fully supports Atmel | SMART SAMR21 devices, a single-chip solution integrating Atmel’s ARM Cortex-M0+-based MCU and high-performance IEEE 802.15.4 RF transceiver available as a standalone component or production-ready certified modules. BitCloud is also compatible with the Atmel AVR ATmega256RFR2 wireless MCU, delivering power consumption of just 12,5 mA in active receive mode, combined with receiver sensitivity at 101 dBm.
