LONDON Jennic's chips, modules, stacks and development kits have been tested by TÜV Rheinland Group and have been considered ready for use out of the box by developers building products for wireless sensor networks based on the ZigBee standard.
The Jennic (Sheffield, U.K.) ZigBee compliant platform can co-exist with other products on the wireless network and developers can apply for certification of their own products to ensure interoperability with products from other manufacturers.
“Achieving compliance means we have become part of a growing list of platforms that customers can choose from when they are developing their next product. Our aim is to differentiate our offering from the others by giving them an out-of-the-box experience that’s better than any other. We believe we can address this by making it easier for developers to get going with their product design – such as having a single-chip product, the right APIs (application programming interfaces), easy to understand user guides and support, and availability of the network stacks online,” said Jim Lindop, CEO of Jennic.
Jennic’s ZigBee compliant platform includes the JN5121 wireless microcontroller and the software stack. The JN5121 combines an on-chip 32-bit RISC core, compliant 2.4GHz IEEE802.15.4 transceiver, 64Kb ROM and 96Kb of RAM, and a range of peripherals.
