Boston, Mass. - The EM35x InSight Development Kits from Ember enable development and debugging of ZigBee products on the ARM Cortex-M3 based system-on-chips (SoCs) EM351 and EM357 in the recently launched EM300 Series semiconductor platform.
The EM351 and EM357 SoCs are touted to pack the industry's highest wireless networking performance and application code space into the lowest power-consuming chipset.
The kits include hardware, network development and debugging software, compiler and EmberZNet PRO networking stack for embedded applications, delivered in a complete development environment.
The hardware package consists of three EM35x InSight Adapters (ISA3s) for programming and debugging ZigBee applications; three breakout boards with EM357-based modules; a module variety pack with six modules - EM351 and EM357 variants - that can be connected to the breakout board; a sample pack with ten (10) EM357 chips for customer designs; and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switch and cables for network scale testing.
The EM35x InSight Development Kits contain Ember's InSight Development Environment, which provides a suite of software tools for rapidly developing and debugging ZigBee PRO applications including Smart Energy and Home Automation.
The InSight Development Environment includes support for IAR EWARM IDE. With this feature, Ember's InSight AppBuilder will support the generation of project files to work with IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM v5.40. This feature also allows developers to build ZigBee certifiable projects that can be directly read and built by IAR EWARM v5.40.
When connected, users will be able to automatically detect development hardware and select the sample applications to put on the nodes in the development network.
The EM35x Development Kits cost $2,500 USD at the base level, which includes a 30-day evaluation license for IAR EWARM v5.40. A version with a permanent IAR EWARM license is also available.
Customers in North America can order the kits on the Digi-Key Web site.
Customers outside North America should contact their regional distributor for Ember.
