Atmel Zigbee?

Started by Unknown September 28, 2006
Hi,

I'm a student working on an embedded systems undergraduate design
project.  In our project, we want to use an Atmel chip with some other
Zigbee module that will allow us to transfer information using Zigbee
wireless communication.  We have found several choices, such as
Maxstream's XBee Zigbee module, but we would prefer to use one that  is
from Atmel or is compatible with Atmel.

We found that Atmel has the AT86RF230 on their site
http://www.atmel.com/products/AVR/z-link/Default.asp, but when we tried
to actually buy the chips, it didn't seem like there were any
distributors for it.

Does anyone know if the Atmel Zigbee chips are already out, and if so,
where we can buy them?

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Yes, they are out. Tell your distributor to contact Atmel to get the information.

All the Zigbee devices out there are now obselete.
Last week Zigbee alliance proposed a new standard
that is not backward compatiable!
