Integration Associates has announced the release of its Zigbee module development kit that contains a selection of pre-certified Zigbee-compliant modules and application examples, building upon the company's earlier USB Zigbee dongle Development Kit.

This development kit promises developers an efficient path to a product with a Zigbee logo. The pre-certified module eliminates the need to re-certify the Zigbee stack in the final product. The developer simply needs to submit their product for application-level testing before being granted access to the Zigbee trademark.

The 2.4GHz IA DAMD-DK1 2400 Zigbee development Kit contains:

  • Three H8S MCU Development Boards

  • Three IA OEM-DAMD1 2400 embedded Zigbee Stack Modules with stub antennas

  • Two IA OEM-DAUB1 2400 Zigbee USB Dongles

The selection of 802.15.4 and Zigbee examples will help developers get their product up and running quickly. The MCU development boards and the IA OEM-DAMD1 2400 modules allow embedded devices to be developed, while the IA OEM-DAUB1 2400 USB Zigbee dongles enable easy methods of joining a PC to the 802.15.4/Zigbee network and can also be used for rapid prototyping of Zigbee compliant devices. The IA OEM-DAUB1 2400 USB Zigbee dongles can operate as packet sniffers with either the free protocol analyzer supplied or all the leading third-party packet decoders, or as other nodes in the Zigbee network.

The new development kit contains multiple application examples, including the Zigbee Home Automation lighting application profile. Full source code is also provided showing how the Zigbee module and the USB Zigbee dongle can be used as a two-way remote control for a home media server controlling the Microsoft media player.

"Integration's pre-certified module development kit allows us to shorten time-to-compliance for customers who want the quickest possible route to putting a Zigbee logo on their products" said Scott Parker, VP of Sales and Marketing, Integration Associates.

The kit is currently available directly from the company or can be ordered through New Horizons, an IA distributor partner.
