Wireless sensor network node supports ZigBee spec

San Francisco, Calif.—Moteiv Corp. unveiled the most recent member of its Tmote product family, the Moteiv Tmote Mini, which is a wireless sensor network node, or “mote” that supports the ZigBee specification.

Tmote Mini is packaged in an industry-standard miniSDIO form factor. As a result, the Tmote Mini mote core can be easily integrated into cell phones, PDAs, and other mobile products.

Tmote Mini combines a Texas Instruments MSP430 microcontroller with a TI/Chipcon CC2420 low-power radio, forming the mote core for use in wireless sensor network applications.

The Tmote Mini line is offered in two configurations: the standard module has 0 dBm (1mW) output power at 2.4 GHz, and an enhanced module with +20 dBm (100mW) output power at 2.4 GHz. Both versions are IEEE 802.15.4 compliant.

Functionally equivalent to Moteiv's Tmote Sky module, Tmote Mini allows existing applications to be seamlessly migrated from the Tmote Sky development platform to the Tmote Mini deployment platform for use in production environments.

Tmote Mini measures 20 mm x 25.4 mm and is less than 2mm thick, allowing it to be readily integrated into a variety of products (the Mini Plus is slightly longer at 32mm, while still compatible with the miniSDIO specification.)

Pricing: $1,995.
Availability: The Tmote Mini and Tmote Mini Plus are currently available as individual units in volume or complete with the development kit.
