To simplify the development of ZigBee® wireless connectivity-enabled smart energy infrastructure, home and building automation and intelligent lighting gateways, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announced the availability of the CC2538 system-on-chip (SoC). The industry’s most integrated ZigBee solution, the CC2538 is cost-efficient with an ARM® Cortex™-M3 MCU, memory and hardware accelerators on one piece of silicon.
Times Microwave Systems has extended its product warranty for its world class line of Times-Protect® lightning protection products. In addition to the standard warranty, Times now offers to replace any Times-Protect® lightning protector free of charge during the warranty period if it’s damaged or destroyed in a lightning strike while protecting the RF equipment.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI), leading the industry with the most complete wireless connectivity portfolio for embedded applications, announced that the CC2538 is the industry’s first ZigBee® wireless network processor to offer the three most popular ZigBee standards for one end-device (ZigBee Smart Energy™, ZigBee Home Automation™ and ZigBee Light Link™). Now a single end-equipment can support these three standards, offering a seamless user experience with fast switching between each standard making it seem like concurrent operation.
Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced the industry’s first demonstrations of the new ZigBee® Light Link standard on the CC2530 ZigBee system-on-chip (SoC).
