Demonstrates Fastest Dual-Network Functionality for ZigBee® Networks and Smart Energy Systems
Kinetis KW20 wireless microcontroller’s dual-PAN feature allows a single device to simultaneously participate in two ZigBee networks
ultimate flexibility, Freescale also offers an individual IEEE 802.15.4 radio transceiver with the same high-performance characteristic as the radio inside the KW20, including dual-PAN capability.
This radio device, the MC13242, can be paired with any of the vast selection of Kinetis 32-bit MCUs.
Dual-PAN functionality will be supported in Freecale’s ZigBee protocol software and sample applications for the MC13242 and KW20 wireless MCUs, including the forthcoming ZigBee IP stack and ZigBee Smart Energy 2.0 standard.
Freescale is now sampling the Kinetis KW20 wireless MCUs (KW21D256V, KW21D512V and KW22D512V) and the MC13242 RF transceiver to select customers, as well as providing ZigBee protocol stack and profile software.
General availability is expected in the first quarter of 2013 and pricing for the KW21D256 starts at $4.27(USD) suggested resale price for 10K units. For more information, visit www.freescale.com/KW20.
