EMB-ZRF231PA-lateral-2


  • Description

    EMB-ZRF231PA  is a 2.4 GHz wireless module that combines high performance to small dimensions and low cost, providing the system integrator a simple and easy way to add IEEE 802.15.4 / ZigBee / RF4CE 2.4 GHz low-power wireless connectivity and multi-hop networking into existing products.
    Notable features include:

    • up to +20 dBm (100 mW) RF output power
    • RF sensitivity up to -105 dBm
    • integrated PCB antenna or U.FL connector
    • open platform

    The EMB-ZRF231PA modules ship programmed with EBI-802.15.4 which allows the customer to use the modules as a simple, ready-to-use modem (using AT-like commands over UART; see EBI protocol page for more information). The evaluation kit EMB-ZRF231PA-EVK is strongly suggested to customers willing to develop their own firmware applications, since the kit provides all hardware tools required to download a custom firmware on the module.
