Transceiver adds connectivity to Kinetis 32-bit MCUs

Posted By : Nat Bowers

Extending wireless capabilities to many of its popular Kinetis MCUs, Freescale Semiconductor has introduced a 2.4GHz IEEE 802.15.4 transceiver for home automation and industrial control applications. Featuring support for multiple wireless mesh networks, the MCR20AVHM can be paired with Kinetis MCUs based on ARM Cortex-M0+ and Cortex-M4 technology to implement low-power wireless protocols and applications including Thread, ZigBee and multiple proprietary solutions.

Freescale say that the MCR20AVHM transceiver features outstanding RF performance, low-power operation, small footprint size and simple integration with the company’s Kinetis MCUs, thereby exposing a host of existing end-products to the fast-growing IoT market.

The wireless transceiver also features hardware dual PAN functionality which enables communication with multiple networks via a single radio, as well as antenna diversity for robust RF performance in harsh environments.
