In an increasingly connected world, wireless connectivity is more essential than ever. Consumers demands are escalating as wireless extends from PC peripherals and home entertainment applications to the Smart Grid and beyond. To support these sophisticated applications, Microchip offers a complete line of IEEE 802.15.4-compliant, IPv6/6LoWPAN based, ZigBee certified wireless solutions. They are based on Microchip’s rich family of RF transceivers, 8-bit and 32-bit AVR, and ARM microcontrollers. To ease development and speed time to market, Microchip offers a variety of free software stacks, reference designs, wireless modules and development kits. Together, Microchip solutions and tools provide everything you need to meet the unique needs of low-cost, low-power, wireless control and sensor network applications.
- Single-Chip Solutions — The Microchip IEEE 802.15.4-compliant single-chip solution combines either an ARM® Cortex®-M0+ based- or industry’s leading AVR, microcontroller with a best-in-class 2.4GHz RF transceiver. It is ideal for applications requiring minimal board space and cost — without compromising on MCU and RF performance.
- Transceivers — Our wide range of high performance, low-power IEEE 802.15.4-compliant transceivers support regional 700/800/900MHz frequency bands available in China, Europe, Japan and North America, as well as the 2.4GHz band available worldwide. For maximum flexibility, these unique RF transceivers can be combined with any of Atmel’s award winning microcontrollers over the SPI Interface.
- Modules — ZigBits are compact 802.15.4/ZigBee modules featuring record-breaking range performance and exceptional ease of integration. ZigBits also pack a complete FCC/CE/ARIB certified RF design that eliminates costly and time-consuming RF development and gets your product to market on-time and on-budget.
