Wireless sensor network node supports Zigbee

Keywords:wireless network node  Zigbee mote core  wireless sensor network 

Moteiv has introduced wireless sensor network node, or "mote," that supports the Zigbee specification. Packaged in miniSDIO form factor, the Tmote Mini mote core can be easily integrated into cell phones, PDAs and other mobile products.

Tmote Mini combines a TI MSP430 microcontroller with a TI/Chipcon CC2420 low-power radio, forming the mote core for use in wireless sensor network applications. The Tmote Mini line is offered in two configurations: a standard module that has 0dBm (1mW) output power at 2.4GHz and an enhanced module with +20dBm (100mW) output power at 2.4GHz. Both versions are IEEE 802.15.4 compliant. Functionally equivalent to Moteiv's Tmote Sky module, Tmote Mini allows existing applications to be seamlessly migrated from the Tmote Sky development platform to the Tmote Mini deployment platform for use in production environments.

Tmote Mini measures 20-by-25.4mm and is less than 2mm thick, allowing it to be readily integrated into a variety of products. The Mini Plus is slightly longer at 32mm while still compatible with the miniSDIO specification.

The Tmote Mini and Tmote Mini Plus are currently available as individual units in volume or complete with the development kit. Pricing is at Rs.84,328.23 ($1,995).
