ZigBee Compliant Platform
Microchip Technology Inc. announces the ZigBee Compliant Platform designation from the National Testing Service and the ZigBee Alliance for the combination of its MRF24J40 IEEE 802.15.4 RF transceiver and the PIC18 family of high-end 8-bit Flash microcontrollers. Additionally, Microchip offers compliant development tools and compliant source code for its royalty-free, no-cost license ZigBee protocol stack. The ZigBee Compliant Platform designation means that design engineers can use Microchip’s semiconductors to build products that will interoperate over a ZigBee protocol wireless network. Microchip’s PIC18 high-performance microcontrollers offer a wide range of options with 32 to 128 Kbytes of Flash program memory in 28 to 100-pin packages.
