The JN5179-001-M16 is an ultra-low-power, high-performance, surface-mount module targeted at IEEE802.15.4 and ZigBee
3.0 networking applications, enabling users to realise products with minimum time-to-market and at the lowest
cost.It removes the need for the expensive and lengthy development of custom RF boards and test
suites. The module uses NXP’s JN5179 wireless microcontroller to provide a comprehensive solution with Arm®
Cortex®-M3 CPU, IEEE802.15.4-compliant radio and large memory. An integrated PCB antenna and a uFL connector for an
external antenna are provided on the module, and an RF transmission power of up to +21 dBm can be achieved (in
territories that allow high RF power levels). All that is required to develop and manufacture wireless control or
sensing products is the connection of a power supply and peripherals such as switches, actuators and sensors,
considerably simplifying product development. The module provides an ideal platform for developing ZigBee 3.0
applications based on ZigBee Lighting and Occupancy devices.
