Freescale Semiconductors and Arrow Electronics are jointly presenting a half-day seminar on the ZigBee technology and its applications, in mid-March, both in Sydney and in Melbourne.
ZigBee is a wireless networking technology based on the newly defined IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
Adoption of the ZigBee protocol as a single wireless standard helps original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) realise cost reductions and speed time to market versus current proprietary wireless or wired sensor networks.
Freescale Semiconductors has joined the ZigBee Alliance. Being a promoter allows it to continue its ongoing contribution to the development of a successful standard, and participation in the decision-making for ZigBee Alliance activities.
Freescale provides all the building blocks used in a complete ZigBee-compliant platform solution: the RF transceiver, MAC and ZigBee software, microcontrollers and sensors.
Arrow Electronics has a line card featuring the industries leading component manufacturers of semiconductors, passives, electro-mechanical and connector products offering complete solutions.
Seminar dates and locations are:
* March 15. Novatel, Glen Waverley, Melbourne. 9am-12.30pm.
* March 16. Macquarie School of Management, Sydney. 9am-12.30pm.
