May 06, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Microchip Technology Inc., a provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and flash-IP solutions, has announced an expansion of its embedded-wireless portfolio.
The Bluetooth additions include the PIC32 Bluetooth Audio Development Kit, featuring modules, stacks and CODECs, and XBee footprint-compatible socket modules with integrated stacks. The new Wi-Fi offerings comprise IEEE 802.11b/g Wi-Fi modules with Microchip's TCP/IP stack running on a PIC microcontroller for configurability, as well as XBee footprint-compatible socket modules with integrated stacks for ease of use, the company said.
Microchip is also adding a low-power 2.4GHz radio that supports both the IEEE 802.15.4 and proprietary data rates (from 125kbps to 2Mbps), including the ZigBee, MiWi and other proprietary protocols, the company added.
"Whether you are designing wireless networks optimized for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, ZigBee or proprietary protocols, Microchip has you covered," said Steve Caldwell, director of Microchip's Wireless Products Division.
