Atmel Corp.'s has reached an agreement with wireless software provider Figure 8 Wireless Inc. to integrate Figure 8's ZigBee protocol software with Atmel's 802.15.4 compliant Z-Link chipset. The two companies will bring this complete solution to the emerging ZigBee market for cost effective, wireless, low data rate products. ABI Research forecasts that shipments for the ZigBee market could exceed 80 million units worldwide by the end of 2006.

Under the terms of the agreement, Atmel will utilize the Figure 8 ZigBee network software stack, allowing Atmel to offer its customers a fully integrated, OEM-ready ZigBee platform. Atmel's Z-Link solution includes Atmel's 868/902-928 MHz DSSS transceiver, a ZigBee-customized AVR microcontroller, 802.15.4 firmware, reference designs and the Figure 8 Z-Stack ZigBee software and related development tools. This platform is expected to simplify ZigBee product development for OEMs and ODMs, shortening time to market by eliminating the need to procure and integrate components and software from multiple suppliers.
