Meshing RF Module
Telegesis announces the ETRX1 a meshing RF module that enables easy integration into industrial and other applications. Designed as a complete hardware product on one board, the ETRX1 will allow companies to quickly tap into the ZigBee market for wireless control and monitoring products without requiring in-house RF engineering experience. Incorporating the ZigBee ready Ember meshing stack EmberNet the ETRX1 module is built around Ember’s EM2420 radio and an Atmel Atmega 128L microprocessor. In addition to the compact hardware design, the company has introduced an AT style command layer to facilitate rapid adoption of the technology. This familiar format will enable engineers to communicate easily and simply with the meshing software and move quickly to full integration. The module measures 37.75 × 20.45 mm and is surface mountable. The ETRX1 operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM bandwidth and the technology is IEEE 802.15.4 compliant.
