California Eastern Laboratories' encompass the Silicon Labs transceiver platforms (the Si1000 and
Si1002) with frequency range options of 868 and 915 MHz covering the European
and Americas sub-gigahertz ISM bands. The modules support multiple software
platforms to comply with US and European operating standards.
modules focus on long range low power wireless applications. They are well
suited for industrial sensor networks, metering and other non line of sight
The MeshConnect Sub-G modules support multiple software stacks
including Synapse SNAP embedded OS, wireless M-Bus, Silicon Labs EZMac and
CEL's API. The SNAP software stack supports comprehensive mesh networks with
ease of use. CEL's 868 MHz Sub-G module supports the wireless M-Bus stack.
MeshConnect Sub-G modules have low power consumption and their link
budgets provide transmission in non line of sight applications such as lighting
control, industrial sensor networks, serial wire replacement, metering and
irrigation. At +13 and +20 dBm power outputs, the new Sub-G modules offer 868
MHz (Europe) and 915 MHz (Americas) ISM band options. As certified and
qualified modules, the MeshConnect Sub-G solutions eliminate the need for
certifications, reducing overall system cost and accelerating time to market.
The new modules have an additional
optional flash memory (in addition to the Si1000/Si1002 built in Flash) located
on the module enabling over the air software updates. This feature will allow
system implementers to immediately field units and remotely upgrade their
software with new releases. The modules' high link budgets allow for greater
sensitivity and power outputs.
The MeshConnect Sub-G modules are sampling now. Mass
Production is available June 2011. Part
numbers are ZICM0868P0-1 (868 MHz Europe) and ZICM0900P2-1 (900 MHz
A flyer or flier, also called a circular, handbill or leaflet, is a form of paper advertisement intended for wide distribution and typically posted or distributed in a public place or through the mail.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
