Ember to offer single source ZigBee wireless network platform
12/15/2004On the heels of ratification of the ZigBee Specification, Ember Corp., a Boston-based developer of wireless semiconductor solutions, has announced a new version of its wireless networking platform designed to be fully ZigBee compliant. Ember's ZigBee software together with its EM2420 chip will be a single source platform featuring an 802.15.4-compliant radio and ZigBee protocol stack in a development environment.
Ember's ZigBee platform supports pre-defined stack profiles for home automation applications, as well as a customer configurable stack profile. Ember's support for user configurable stack profiles enables customers to create solutions, optimized to their specific applications. In addition, Ember will continue to provide enhancements, including its reliable transport layer, for which Ember customers have been designing products for several years.
Ember also announced that it will bundle into its full suite of development tools the full ZigBee stack free of charge to OEM customers.
"Ember's ZigBee platform will enable OEMs adopting ZigBee to get their products to market much faster," said Venkat Bahl, Ember's vice president of marketing.
Ember is a promoter of the ZigBee Alliance. The company's wireless semiconductor system was chosen as the National Technical Systems' (NTS) "Golden Suite" standard by which all other IEEE 802.15.4 products are tested for compliance and interoperability.
