Chipcon AS, a provider of low-cost, low-power RF ICs, launched its complete ZigBee development platform, including hardware, the ZigBee protocol stack as well as development tools.

According to the company, the new CC2420 ZigBee Development Kit is highly suited as a prototyping, evaluation and demonstration platform targeting various real life ZigBee applications. Instead of solving complex radio and network issues, designers can now focus on building applications on top of the ZigBee standardized framework, Chipcon added.

The new kit includes the Z-Stack from Figure 8 Wireless. Meanwhile, the Z-Stack object code, tools and documentation will be provided as an End Customer distribution package, which will be available for download from the company's ZigBee Developer Site after purchase of the CC2420 ZigBee Development Kit. The price for the complete kit is $5,000.

Chipcon's ZigBee Developer Site will be available on Oct. 4. The company's IEEE 802.15.4 MAC source code will continue to be provided separately and free of charge under a license agreement.
