This ZigBee module features an onboard CC2530F256 XBee-compatible interface.

Please be aware that you will need at least two modules to establish a ZigBee/XBee network.

There are two aspects of using this module:

  • Develop your application with the provided firmware:
    Combined with the provided firmware, the module works as a simple ZigBee wireless UART module, just as easy to use as any other UART module, and it requires no knowledge in regard to the ZigBee specification.
  • Develop your own firmware:
    In this case, you will need to start from the very basics to create your solution. What's more, debuggers (like CC Debugger) and knowledge of the ZigBee Specification are mandatory.

ZigBee Module Features

  • As easy to use as any UART modules
  • Provided firmware : Coordinator, Router, End Device
    • Router firmware is preloaded by default
  • Supports sending large data packet & fast broadcasting via UART
  • Supports programming via UART (thanks to the Bootloader; a serial module is required)
  • Supports configuring via upper computer software : working mode, UART port, baudrate, signal channel, etc.
  • Optional hardware interface
    • XBee compatible straight through pin headers (soldered by default)
    • SMT stamp holes are also available (for batch purchase, the pin headers can be removed if required)
  • MISC
    • Auto networking (at least 1 Coordinator and 1 Router are required)
    • Real-time monitoring the signal intensity between Coordinator, Router, and End Device
    • Supports onboard PCB antenna and/or external IPEX antenna
