Keywords:wireless network? MiWi protocol stack? application note? wireless communication?

Implementing applications with wireless networking is becoming commonplace. From consumer devices to industrial applications, there is a growing expectation that our devices will have built-in the ability to talk to each other without a hard-wired connection. The challenge is to select the right wireless networking protocol and implement it in a cost-effective manner.

The MiWi wireless networking protocol is a simple protocol designed for low data rate, short distance, and low-cost networks. Fundamentally based on IEEE 802.15.4 for WPANs, the MiWi protocol provides an easy-to-use alternative for wireless communication. In particular, it targets smaller applications that have relatively small network sizes, with few hops between nodes, using Microchip's MRF24J40 2.4GHz transceiver for IEEE 802.15.4 compliant networks.

This application note covers the definition of the MiWi wireless networking protocol stack and how it works. The example Stack implementation data structures, usage and APIs are covered in this document, as well as resource requirements for this implementation.
