Microchip stack for the Zigbee protocol

Posted: 29 Aug 2007 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:Zigbee protocol? control network? wireless protocols?

Zigbee is a wireless network protocol specifically designed for low data rate sensors and control networks. There are a number of applications that can benefit from the Zigbee protocol: building automation networks, home security systems, industrial control networks, remote metering and PC peripherals are some of the many possible applications.

Compared to other wireless protocols, the Zigbee wireless protocol offers low complexity, reduced resource requirements and most importantly, a standard set of specifications. It also offers three frequency bands of operation along with a number of network configurations and optional security capability.

If you are currently exploring alternatives to your existing control network technologies, such as RS-422, RS-485 or proprietary wireless protocol, the Zigbee protocol could be the solution you need.

This application note is specifically designed to assist you in adopting the Zigbee protocol for your application. You can use the Microchip stack for the Zigbee protocol provided in this application note to quickly build your application. To illustrate the usage of the Stack, several working demo applications are included. You can use these demo applications as a reference or simply modify and adopt them to your requirements.
