The demand is growing for more and more applications to move to wireless communication.

The benefits are reduced costs and ease of implementation. Wireless communication does not require cabling and other hardware, and the associated installation costs. It also can be implemented in locations where cabling would be hard, if not impossible, to install.

The Microchip MiWi P2P Wireless Protocol is a variation of IEEE 802.15.4, using Microchip's MRF24J40 2.4 GHz transceiver and any Microchip 8-, 16- or 32bit MCU with a SPI.

The protocol provides reliable direct wireless communication via an easy-to-use programming interface. It has a rich feature set that can be compiled in and out of the stack to meet a wide range of customer needswhile minimizing the stack footprint.

This application note describes the Microchip Wireless (MiWi) Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Protocol and its differences from IEEE 802.15.4. The document details the supported features and how to implement them. Simple, application-level data structures and programming interfaces also are described.
