    ZigBee / JenNet-IP Development Kit for the Internet of Things (NXP JN516x-EK001)

Welcome to the Wireless Connectivity TechZone

Our state-of-the-art JN51xx wireless microcontrollers place us at the forefront of developments in wireless technology. They provide the basis for cutting-edge wireless networking solutions in a diverse range of fields, including Smart Energy, Smart Lighting and the 'Internet of Things'. The JN51xx microcontrollers provide the optimum hardware platform for wireless network nodes, integrating a high-performance CPU and a 2.4-GHz radio transceiver on a single chip targeted at IEEE802.15.4-based solutions. This hardware is complemented by comprehensive support software (based on established networking protocols such as JenNet-IP, ZigBee Smart Energy, ZigBee Home Automation, ZigBee Light Link and ZigBee Remote Control) and other collateral to streamline product development and minimise time-to-market. Whatever your wireless networking needs, we would be delighted to talk to you about the microcontroller and networking protocol that provide the most appropriate and cost-effective solution for your particular product.
