Partnership adds ZigBee stack for Asia

LONDON — Jennic is working with Taiwan's Institute for Information Industry (III) to provide a ZigBee stack on its JN5121 microcontroller for Asia-Pacific market.

As the primary ICT research development organization in Taiwan, III has ported its ZigBee stack to Jennic's JN5121 IEEE802.15.4 wireless microcontroller, and is to provide this solution to customers in Taiwan and the Asia-Pacific Region. The result of this joint development will be shown at the ZigBee Alliance Open House in Hong Kong on December 8.

The ZigBee stack is developed by the Networks and Multimedia Institute (NMI) of III, which has been involved in wireless sensor network and IEEE802.15.4 related research fields since 2002. Having joined the ZigBee Alliance in early 2004 and evolved as an IEEE802.15.4/ZigBee software solution provider, III became the first company in Asia to pass the ZigBee Compliant Platform certification.

Tony Lucido, VP marketing at Jennic, said, “We are seeing very strong interest in ZigBee applications in Asia. Our strategy is to work closely with partners like III to provide a strong regional presence.”
