6LoWPAN module on 868/915 MHz with IPsec security

The 6LoWPAN module enables secure low-power wireless IPv6 communication for sensors and small devices. It comes with user-programmable, royalty-free 6LoWPAN stack with mesh routing capability. 6LoWPAN is an Internet Engineering Task Force standard to develop wireless, low-power sensors and devices on IP communication. Your low-power network on 6LoWPAN can easily be integrated into an existing […]

The smallest GPS module with embedded GPS antenna?

Is that really the smallest GPS module with embedded GPS antenna? GPS module Unique Features Extremely tiny form factor 9.6 x 14.0 x 1.95 mm -> I found no smaller GPS module Low power consumption: 68 mW@ 1.8 V -> I found no other GPS module with lower power consumption Only 125uA in average consumption […]

Will Google’s Open Source Radio protocol on 6LoWPAN replace ZigBee and Z-Wave?

Google promised to release open source code for a 868/915 MHz wireless mesh protocol. It will be a low cost alternative to Zigbee or Z-Wave. It shall require less than 16 Kbytes RAM and 32 Kbytes flash. The target of the bill of material is 30 percent less than Zigbee Pro. The Google protocol will […]
