Cirronet's ZigBee developer kit is now available. The kit lets network designers evaluate the ZigBee wireless standard in industrial application environments. Dubbed the ZMN2400DK, the kit includes two 2.4-GHz serial interface boards, which are built around the company's high RF power (100 mW) ZigBee OEM module, and feature both USB and RS-232 interfaces, plus power adapters, cables, antennas, batteries, and demo software. Developers can use the kit to quickly test range, speed, and operation in the real-time environment, using the same inputs that would drive an actual application, and can continue using the kit to develop system interfaces and control software.
The developer kit, including technical support, is available for $295. A follow-on kit will include additional serial interface boards and a ZigBee serial gateway board to enable the creation of complete ZigBee networks. For more information, visit www.cirronet.com.
