Description

CEL's MeshConnect™ EM357 USB Sticks enable hardware vendors to quickly integrate ZigBee® into existing devices with a USB port. No RF design expertise is required. They can be used as a hardware development platform for rapid prototyping and as a companion to the MeshConnect EM357 Modules.

The USB Sticks can be used for the following
Development uses:

Platform for custom firmware development
º    Runs EmberZNet PRO™ stack, including Smart Energy,
     Home Automation, Commercial Building Automation
     and ZigBee Light Link profiles  
º    Virtual COM port is easily accessible by application
     software using a UART interface
º    Ember InSight Port allows full debugging and trace
     capabilities

Sniffer for Over-the-Air network logging
º    Full support for Silicon Labs' Desktop Network Analyzer,
     including protocol decoding, event aggregation, filtering
     and visualization tools
º    Quickly determine root cause of any networking issue
     to get your product to market faster

GUIs using Windows, Mac and Linux
º    Allow users to interact with ZigBee network
º    Develop simulators to allow development testing to be
     completed if a certain network element is unavailable

The USB Sticks can be used for the following
Production uses:

Network commissioning tool
º    USB form factor provides a convenient interface for
     technicians to setup and verify new network
     installations and troubleshoot existing ones

Add ZigBee functionality to any device with a USB port
º    Easy to retrofit existing products to add ZigBee
     functionality
º    Reduce time to market and avoid the cost of a
     hardware redesign required for module- or
     IC-level integration

The MeshConnect USB Sticks are available in low and high output power options (+8 dBm and +20 dBm) to accommodate various range and performance requirements.
