Jennic has launched its second generation wireless microcontrollers, the JN513x family. These devices provide performance, price and power improvements over the current JN5121 family.

Coupled with the release of the wireless microcontroller family is a range of modules, evaluation kits, software and protocol stacks.

This product family is introduced as part of Jennic's ongoing wireless microcontroller strategy. Jim Lindop, CEO of Jennic commented, "With our first generation products in volume production, Jennic is now demonstrating its ability to execute against an aggressive roadmap which yields continual improvements to radio, power consumption and processor performance. In addition, we are meeting the low price requirements for mass market acceptance of wireless microcontrollers."

Standard power and high power modules are also available offering link budgets of 100dB and 119dB respectively. The standard module has demonstrated operation over 1km and the high-power module over 4km in open-space environments. Modules meet FCC, ETSI and TELEC regulations, reducing the effort needed to integrate Jennic devices into end products.

A new generation of evaluation kits are available. These provide a controller and four sensor units with a range of plug-in modules, offering power and antenna options. Users will now be able to evaluate different module types to suit their application and environment, with a range of site survey tools, including a customisable packet error rate measurement routine.

Developers can lower their tool investments and learning curves using a new release of Jennic's free, Integrated Developer Environment. This includes a new C compiler offering a 10 per cent code density improvement.

JN513x products are now available for general sampling in a 56-pin QFN RoHS-compliant package. The JN513x product family includes the JN5139 wireless microcontroller with 192k ROM, 96k RAM at Rs.158.62 ($3.50) in one lakh unit quantities down to the JN5131 with 192k ROM, 8k RAM at Rs.133.69 ($2.95) in one lakh unit quantities.
