Description

CEL's MeshConnect EM357 USB Sticks enable hardware vendors to quickly integrate ZigBee® into existing devices with a USB port. No RF design expertise is required. They can be used as a hardware development platform for rapid prototyping and as a companion to the MeshConnect EM357 Modules.

The USB Sticks can be used for the following Development uses:

Platform for custom firmware development

  • Runs EmberZNet PRO™ stack, including Smart Energy,
  • Home Automation, Commercial Building Automation and ZigBee Light Link profiles
  • Virtual COM port is easily accessible by application software using a UART interface
  • Ember InSight Port allows full debugging and trace capabilities

Sniffer for Over-the-Air network logging

  • Full support for Silicon Labs' Desktop Network Analyzer, including protocol decoding, event aggregation, filtering and visualization tools
  • Quickly determine root cause of any networking issue to get your product to market faster

GUIs using Windows, Mac and Linux

  • Allow users to interact with ZigBee network
  • Develop simulators to allow development testing to be completed if a certain network element is unavailable

The USB Sticks can be used for the following Production uses:

Network commissioning tool

  • USB form factor provides a convenient interface for technicians to setup and verify new network installations and troubleshoot existing ones

Add ZigBee functionality to any device with a USB port

  • Easy to retrofit existing products to add ZigBee functionality
  • Reduce time to market and avoid the cost of a hardware redesign required for module- or IC-level integration

The MeshConnect USB Sticks are available in low and high output power options (+8 dBm and +20 dBm) to accommodate various range and performance requirements.
