Cirronet Inc.'s ZMN2405HP OEM modules feature the company's proprietary CSM profile that virtually eliminates additional programming when adding Zigbee wireless connectivity to products.

The 65mW ZMN2405HP provides robust performance with low power consumption (25dB of output power adjustment is provided through software configuration allowing use under ETS 300328 rules).

The ZMN2405HP is based on TI's CC2430 SoC and runs on the most recent Zigbee 2006 stack. It integrates 12bit ADCs and features a sleep current of less than 3?A. The module includes six GPIO lines, 3 ADCs, 2 DACs, a UART, and a SPI port allowing a variety of sensor inputs or data streams to be sent over the ZigBee network.

The ZMN2405HP module includes the Zigbee 2006 stack and the Cirronet CSM profile. The CSM profile provides an API for the modules allowing OEMs to simply write to the API.

This eliminates the requirement for OEMs to develop application code for the modules. The CSM profile includes Network Discovery, Full Serial and I/O functionality, a variety of sleep modes as well as a flexible auto-reporting mode that allows data collection without polling.

Development kits are available through Cirronet's network of distributors including ACAL, Avnet-Memec, Digi-Key, Mouser, NuHorizons and Richardson Electronics.

The modules are suitable for drop-in replacement for and replace the Cirronet ZMN2400HP 2-chip modules, and require little, if any, customer application changes.

Cirronet will provide custom profiles for OEMs or will provide support to customers wishing to write their own stack or profile or can create custom profiles for OEMs. The ZMN2405HP is FCC and ETSI certified as a module.
