ZIC2410 RF Transceiver System-on-Chip (SoC)

Mouser Electronics, Inc. (Mansfield, TX) is now stocking the ZIC2410 RF Transceiver System-on-Chip (SoC) from California Eastern Laboratories. The ZIC2410 Transceiver IC is a fully-integrated System-on-Chip (SoC) for ZigBee / IEEE 802.15.4 applications. It combines a powerful, ZigBee-compliant RF transceiver with an 8051-based 8-bit microcontroller. The ZIC2410 provides +8dBM output power and a link budget of 106dB. It also offers -98dBm receiver sensitivity to ensure immunity to interference from other 2.4GHz transmissions. The MCU includes an onboard a-law/µ-law voice CODEC with ADPCM support and an I2S/PCM interface with two 128-byte FIFOs.

Mouser is also stocking the ZIC2410-EDK-1 ZigBee Transceiver 2.4 GHz IC Eval Kit that features a wireless frequency of 2400MHz to 2483MHz, a data rate of 250Kbps, 24 I/Os, and four timers. The transceivers help simplify radio designs, shrink their size, lower power consumption, and reduce overall system cost. The ZIC2410 transceiver is ideal for remote sensing, AMR/AMI, home and building automation, and security networks. With low transmit, receive, and standby power consumption, the transceiver is suited for applications in which battery life is critical.
