座谈简介

ZigBeeTM是一種短距離、低功耗的無線通信技術名稱,其特點是近距離、低複雜度、低功耗、低資料速率、低成本, 高容量和高安全。主要適合用於自動控制和遠端控制領域,可以嵌入各種設備。隨著對嵌入式控制與監視裝置連線能力的需求迅速增長,整合此功能成爲許多工程師面臨的瓶頸。
爲了解決這個問題,ZigBee聯盟基於IEEE802.15.4的無線標準,定義了一個協定堆疊,其低資料傳輸率、低成本和極低功率的短程無線通訊可滿足多數無線感應和控制應用的獨特需求,而迅速成爲市場應用標準。
Microchip是ZigBee聯盟的一員,並且提供完整的解決方案,包括最新發佈的MRF24J40 2.4 GHz射頻收發器和在Microchip PIC 微控制器上執行的免費ZigBee通訊協定軟體堆疊。
Microchip也提供了另一無線網路協定MiWiTM,其比ZigBee所需記憶體空間更小而使得整體應用成本更為降低。
