Description

CEL's MeshConnect™ EM357 Mini Modules feature the smallest footprint of all Ember-based modules available today. Based upon the Ember EM357 ZigBee® SoC, these modules combine advanced silicon architecture (ARM® Cortex™-M3) and the industry's premier ZigBee stack, EmberZNet PRO™. With a small footprint (< 400 mm²) and best-in-class RF performance (link budget 123 dB), CEL's Mini Modules challenge the merits of a discrete implementation. These modules are available in low and high output power options (+8 dBm and +20 dBm), to accommodate various range and performance requirements.

The EM357 SoC IC consists of an RF transceiver with a baseband modem, a hard-wired MAC and an embedded 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ -M3 microcontroller with internal RAM (12 kB) and Flash (192 kB) memory. It provides numerous general-purpose I/O pins and peripheral functions such as timers and UARTs enabling customers to access its rich mix of on-chip functionality.

As Silicon Lab's module partner, CEL has companion kits that enable the Mini Modules to be directly integrated into the Ember Insight™ development tools for easy integration and development.

CEL's MeshConnect™ line of 802.15.4/ZigBee products deliver industry-leading range, high performance, and a rich feature set. CEL's design examples, reference designs and engineering support help customers get their product designs to market quickly.

EM35X Ember Companion Kit

CEL's MeshConnect EM35x Ember Companion Kit is designed to work with the Ember development kits [ZICM-EM35X-DEV-KIT-3, EM35X-DEV and EM35X-DEV-IAR]. Each module in this CEL kit is soldered on a carrier board making it pin-for-pin compatible with the Ember development board.

The Hardware Contents of this kit are:

6 MeshConnect Mini Modules (ZICM357SPx-1x and ZICM3588SPx-1x). Each Module is mounted on a daughter card (soldered on a carrier board) ready to plug into the Ember EM35x development boards.

  • (1) ZICM357SP0-1C on carrier board / EM357 IC, +8dBm output power with RF port for external antenna
  • (1) ZICM357SP2-1 on carrier board / EM357 IC, +20dBm output power with PCB trace antenna
  • (1) ZICM357SP2-1C on carrier board / EM357 IC, +20dBm output power with RF port for external antenna
  • (1) ZICM3588SP0-1C on carrier board / EM3588 IC, +8dBm output power with RF port for external antenna
  • (1) ZICM3588SP2-1 on carrier board / EM3588 IC, +20dBm output power with PCB trace antenna
  • (1) ZICM3588SP2-1C on carrier board / EM3588 IC, +20dBm output power with RF port for external antenna
