VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 1 /CNW/ -- Exegin announced the
certification of its ZigBee(R) stack software and Q52/Q53 bridge/gateway
hardware as a ZigBee PRO compliant platform.
Exegin's ZigBee stack was specifically designed for more powerful 32-bit
systems that provide central services in personal area networks (PANs). It is
the first in the industry with a bridging layer that supports multiple ZigBee
radios, both real and virtual, within a single PAN and implements the ZigBee
Alliance's ZIPT internet bridge transport layer.
Applications can be quickly deployed with Exegin's hardware, a compact
32- bit PowerPC microcontroller with Ethernet and twin 802.15.4 interfaces and
2.4GHz or 900MHz radios. Application software such as an Energy Service Portal
or a TCP/IP service can be developed using open-source development tools.
Hardware and operating system abstraction layers simplify the porting of the
stack to other RISC processors (ARM(R), MIPS(R), etc.) and other operating
"Certification of our ZigBee compliant platform is an essential part of
our hardware and software business. We can now ship products that connect
ZigBee PANs and host-based applications over TCP/IP networks, allowing ZigBee
devices from many different manufacturers to be commissioned and managed from
across a room or across an ocean," said Les Mulder, Exegin's president.
Exegin Technologies Limited is a provider of ZigBee connectivity
technology, based in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Its gateway, bridge, and protocol
analyzer solutions allow clients to connect to and interact with PANs using
internet-based host applications and other ZigBee PANs. Exegin is a long
standing member of the ZigBee Alliance and participates actively in the
development of ZigBee/IP gateway and bridge specifications.
