TI achieves certification of ZigBee Alliance's Smart Energy 1.1 profile implementation

August 04, 2011 | Paul Buckley | 222903136
Texas Instruments Incorporated has achieved ZigBee Certified status for its ZigBee Smart Energy 1.1 standard implementation, recently introduced by the ZigBee Alliance. TI is making available the company’s new Z-Stack 2.5.0 with support for ZigBee Smart Energy 1.1, geared towards home area networks (HAN).

Proving its leadership in the development of low-power wireless applications such as industrial monitoring and control, smart metering, building automation and more, TI's ZigBee Smart Energy 1.1 profile gives developers the confidence and means necessary to interoperate with various implementations. TI's Z-Stack 2.5.0 with ZigBee Smart Energy 1.1 is available royalty-free to all using TI's ZigBee-compliant hardware platforms.

Laurent Giai-Miniet, TI’s managing director, Low-Power RF business unit, said:  "Our new Z-Stack 2.5.0 will unleash a wider range of interoperable, consumer-friendly HAN products for monitoring things such as energy consumption – a key requirement for the U.S. Department of Energy Smart Grid program and initiatives out of the European Union. We will also continue to deliver Smart Energy-compliant software for future generations, including the forthcoming SEP 2.0."

Availability and Pricing

The Z-Stack 2.5.0 is available from www.ti.com, royalty-free to all using TI's ZigBee compliant hardware platforms. TI's ZigBee development kits are available on TI's e-store. The kits contain additional nodes for experimenting with the mesh capabilities of ZigBee, and are preprogrammed with a ZigBee demo application, giving customers ZigBee directly out of the box. A specific kit also demonstrates the concept with a CC2530 running the Z-Stack and a small MSP microcontroller running the application code.
