ZigBee USNAP Module Suits the Smart Energy HAN Market
Murata Wireless Solutions introduced the SyChip Utility Smart Network Access Port (USNAP) ZigBee module. The USNAP version 2 specification-compliant module enables protocol independent designs for applications within the Smart Energy Home Area Network (HAN) market, such as thermostats, appliances, home-energy displays, and demand-response products. It accomplishes this with minimal additional hardware on the host device. Using the SyChip USNAP module also frees designers from having to create derivatives of standard products in order to support the various and evolving protocols in the Smart Energy HAN market, thereby future-proofing product designs. The SyChip ZigBee USNAP compliant module is a fully integrated, FCC certified, ZigBee PRO module with +20 dBm output power, a 2.4 GHz antenna, and 1 MB of serial flash memory. It offers a 124 dB link budget for long range. The module is optimized for high-performance and low power consumption (sleep at 1.2 µA, transmit at 165 mA at 20 dBm and receive at 31 mA). Pricing for the USNAP module is $20 in 20KU volume.
