The new ZigBee IEEE 802.15.4 product range shares form factor and electrical interfaces with the connectBlue Bluetooth and Wireless LAN product ranges. It is possible for users to reuse the integration efforts of three different wireless technologies, a compatibility that provides OEMs and system integrators with the means to meet varying customer demands with minimal investment. IEEE 802.15.4 is delivered with standard Serial Port Adapter firmware and can be configured with AT commands using connectBlue Toolbox computer software. The Serial Port Adapter application is optimized for high performance and robust behavior for demanding industrial usage, according to the company. IEEE 802.15.4-compliant hardware implements customer-specific application software. A free ZigBee reference application can be downloaded into the modules. www.connectblue.com connectBlue
