'[PIC] ZigBee from Microchip?'

Hiya,

Is anybody knows when could we expect it? Will be that the same thing as rf
chips or is it just an external module that you can use with PICs?

Hey,

Microchip currently has a Zigbee solution, although it isn't particularly
good, this is an external module (well IC) and is/was available through
microchipdirect and other suppliers. However if you are making a new
product/design I would avoid it, as the range is poor and the stack not
particularly powerful.

I have recently been involved with a company called ember based in
Cambridge,UK who make excellent Zigbee solutions. During my meetings with
them they revealed that they are producing the new Zigbee solution for
microchip through the EM260 co-processor, and thankfully your post is timed
well! A press release came out the other day, so I can now mention it!

http://ember.com/press_release.html?id=95

So I would wait around for the new solution. My experience to date with
ember is brilliant and I would highly recommend them.

If anyone is looking at producing any Zigbee solutions and wants any more
info on range etc you can expect from the EM260 drop me a line, as it may be
a while before the info hits the microchip website.

Mat
