California Eastern Laboratories' Matrix ZigBee/IEEE 802.15.4 radio module is based on the Texas Instruments CC2430 transceiver platform.
Matrix modules are targeted at home and building automation, industrial control, security, and remote sensor applications. Output power can be configured up to 10mW, enabling performance to be optimized for specific applications.
Their 10mW maximum power makes the modules well-suited for regions where regulatory agencies limit transmission power.
The module measures 23 x 29mm and an integrated antenna helps to reduce total system costs. An integrated ADC allows direct connection to analog sensors.
Modules ship with point-to-point and point-to-multipoint software and are FCC, IC and CE certified.
The Matrix Evaluation Kits consists of software and two modules mounted on self-contained interface boards. These boards can be optionally battery-powered enabling developers to create and test network connections under real-world environmental conditions.
The software's easy-to-use GUI interface makes it simple to configure the modules' settings: transmission channel, network ID, node ID, transmission power, send and receive packets; and determine packet error rates.
Matrix modules and Evaluation Kits are in stock and available worldwide, both from CEL and through CEL's representatives and franchised distributors.
