As the latest emerging wireless standard, ZigBee is positioned for widespread integration in embedded applications. ZigBee, known for its reliable, low-cost, low-power features, builds upon the established IEEE 802.15.4 standard.

Rabbit’s ZigBee/802.15.4 Application Kit is a reference application that comes complete with the hardware and software for implementing a ZigBee wireless control network in the various topologies such as point-to-point and point-to-multipoint. The simple to use configuration software allows users to set up a network, discover nodes, and establish communications between similar ZigBee devices.

The RabbitCore module acts as the network coordinator to monitor and manage two other battery-powered XBee-equipped node devices. This allows users to access and control a ZigBee/802.15.4 network from anywhere in the world. The RabbitCore module is equipped with:

  • Ethernet
  • 512K Flash
  • 256K SRAM
  • 1MB serial flash
  • 33 GPIO lines

The module has the ability to act as both an intelligent control device or as an Ethernet gateway.

ZigBee is an ideal wireless technology for Rabbit embedded applications. The ZigBee/802.15.4 Application Kit is being introduced at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston (September 26-28th, 2006). The ZigBee/802.15.4 Application Kit is priced at $399 Qty1.
