Introducing IDT® 6LoWPAN Module for Wirelessly Connecting IoT Devices from Renesas, samples and evaluation kit available from Anglia

Renesas has announced the expansion of its IDT® ZWIRxx family with the introduction of the IDT® ZWIR4532 wireless connectivity module, which is FCC certified and provides the critical and secure 6LoWPAN wireless connectivity to link devices to the Internet of Things (IoT). Renesas also provides the optional IDT® SensorShare firmware, a 6LoWPAN open standard stack that communicates natively with IPv6 over IEEE 802.15.4 radio links, which has no associated license fees or royalties, to enable customers to focus on their applications without the burden of building IoT solutions from the ground up.

The low power consumption and small form factor of the IDT® ZWIR4532 module makes it ideal for embedding into a variety of IoT-connected consumer, industrial and medical devices with space constraints, including home automation devices, factory automation monitors, environmental sensors and LED lamps for smart city applications. The IDT® ZWIR4532 module measures just 15.6 × 12 × 2.5 mm making it approximately half the size of other ZWIR4512 modules.

The versatility of the IDT® ZWIR4532 6LoWPAN wireless module makes it suitable for a wide range of applications including Industrial automation, Home and building automation, Lighting Monitoring & Control, Health monitoring, Telemetry, Wearables, HVAC systems, Sensor Networks and many other IoT applications.

The ZWIR4532 is a complete and full-featured IoT connectivity module, incorporating an Arm® microcontroller, a sub-Gigahertz radio transceiver and optional license-free IDT firmware download. It is an excellent solution for IoT connectivity thanks to its support for native communication with computers and mobile devices through IPv6, the ability to create self-healing ad-hoc mesh networks for covering large areas and long ranges, and secure connectivity based on open standard security protocols. The module is also ideal for battery-powered devices as its low power requirements maximize battery life.
