This new wireless sensor has a range of industrial and commercial applications including lighting controls, heating and ventilation controls, wireless headset/earpiece, low-power door intercoms, intelligent remote controllers, etc. A SIM card module (Z-SIM) based on the MG2455, is also available, and is the first and only product of its type in the current market, enabling various mobile applications with voice communication support.
The chips, manufactured by RadioPulse Inc., a leading provider of ZigBee & LR-WPAN chips, are compliant to ZigBee and IEEE 802.15.4 standards, supporting on-chip flash memory and ZigBee 2006 stack profile.

With these new and enhanced features, developers can easily develop wireless applications with smaller form-factor circuits and lower BOM costs. The RadioPulse MG245x series is available immediately through Advanced Power Components, the sole UK and Ireland distributor.
