Compal Communications has chosen Freescale Semiconductor to provide ZigBee technology for its next-generation wireless communication module.

Compal engineered its communication module to meet the ZigBee and IEEE 802.1.5.4 standards and to address the need for a cost effective, low-power wireless sensor and control network. The flexibility and size of its module allows easy integration into a number of applications for various industries.

Meanwhile, Freescale's ZigBee-compliant platform, which includes the MC13193 2.4GHz RF chip, a low voltage, low power HCS08 MCU and the Figure 8 Wireless Z-Stack ZigBee software, provides a robust, cost effective, and easy-to-deploy solution. ZigBee-enabled on-chip features and enhancements reduce external components and total bill of materials, while providing battery lifetimes of up to several years.

"Freescale's comprehensive ZigBee offerings enabled us to deliver a highly integrated wireless module that addresses a variety of emerging wireless applications," said Dr. Sam Yang from Compal. "Our goal is to deliver turnkey solutions to our customers looking to add wireless connectivity, and Freescale's solutions enable new possibilities for medical, home automation and monitoring applications."

"Compal continues to push the envelope for developing solutions that enable OEMs to create innovative wireless solutions for the home and communications," said Brett Black, commercial wireless operations manager of Freescale's wireless and mobile systems group.
