Anaren announced a family of four Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules designed specifically to help OEMs develop products that wirelessly communicate in compliance with the ZigBee standard.
Based on the Texas Instruments (TI) CC2530 low-power RF SoC (which operates using TI's Z-Stack firmware), the new family of AIR modules is bundled with AIR Support for ZigBee - a total solution that includes time-saving AIR-ZNP firmware (including 30+ code examples), pre-certification to applicable global, regulatory standards, and development tools like the company's new BoosterPack for TI MSP430 and Stellaris LaunchPad development kits.
The AIR modules A2530x24xxx measure 11 x 19 x 2.5mm. They offer excellent receiver sensitivity and robustness to interference (-95dBm average) and operate from a wide input voltage range of 2.2 to 3.6V. They are 100% RF tested in production. As well as low-power active modes, the units come with three low power/sleep modes from 1uA to 200uA.
