Dallas, TX, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- January 7, 2011 - A 2.4-GHz ZigBee® network processor with integrated ZigBee PRO software stack has been introduced by Texas Instruments Incorporated.

The new CC2530ZNP provides a simple, off-the-shelf ZigBee solution without requiring designers to learn the complexities of a full ZigBee stack. The CC2530ZNP also allows customers the flexibility to use their existing host processor to run application code while the CC2530ZNP supports the networking component of the system.

Features of the CC2530 include a compact radio reference design, making it ideal for small form factor end equipment and sensors, and a low current consumption optimized for sleeping end nodes and battery operated devices.

Target applications include home and building automation, industrial monitoring and control, sensor networks and telehealth.
