Jennic, a fabless semiconductor company, recently announced a partner program to help drive the adoption of ZigBee Solutions. The program is designed to help OEMs reduce time to market and the cost of entry into this low-power wireless sensor market. Potential applications range from remote building management, automatic meter reading, and asset tagging, to supply-chain management and the delivery of ICs based on the IEEE802.15.4 and ZigBee standards. As part of this program, the first agreement is already in placewith ZigBee network protocol stack providers, design houses, and network test tool providers. The initial members of the partner program include ZigBee protocol stack provider Luxoft Labs; product design and development consultancies Pera and Scientific Generics; and wireless sensor network test equipment provider Daintree Networks. New announcements will come shortly. For more information, visit Jennic at www.jennic.com.
