The CC2480 Z-Accel 2.4 GHz ZigBee-certified network processor from Texas Instruments Inc., Dallas, TX, allows you to integrate ZigBee functionality without needing to learn the complexities of the full ZigBee stack; it can also work with any host microcontroller. The Z-Stack software runs on a ZigBee processor and the application runs on an external MCU. The CC2480 handles all the timing-critical and processing-intensive ZigBee protocol tasks and it communicates with any MCU via an SPI or UART interface. The device targets ZigBee wireless network systems used in home and building automation, industrial monitoring and control, asset tracking, low-power wireless sensor networks, set-top boxes, remote controls, automated meter reading, and medical applications.
