Kit Overview


The 1322x USB1322x USB Dongle is an IEEE 802.15.4 compliant wireless node based on the Freescale MC1322xMC1322x device. The heart of the 1322x USB module is Freescale’s MC1322x 99-pin LGA Platform-in-Package (PiP) solution that can be used for wireless applications ranging from simple proprietary point-to-point connectivity to complete ZigBee mesh networking. The MC1322x is designed to provide a highly integrated, total solution, with premier processing capabilities and very low power consumption.


The 1322x USB1322x USB Dongle provides a platform to evaluate the MC1322xMC1322x device, develop software and applications, and demonstrate IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee networking capabilities. The dongle connects the core device to a personal computer (PC) through a USB port, UART port interface device. The small form factor illustrates an extremely small footprint, 4-layer printed circuit board (PCB) layout with a chip antenna. The MC1322x node typically interfaces to the PC through a virtual COM port (VCM). The dongle is loaded with a software application that implements a wireless “sniffer” to monitor over-the-air IEEE 802.15.4 traffic.The 1322X-USB is programmed to function as an 802.15.4/ZigBee packet sniffer and can be used with the Daintree Sensor Network Analyzer software. The device can also be reprogrammed to support customer applications, providing a small form factor device for PC connectivity.


The MC1322xMC1322x family is Freescale’s third-generation ZigBee platform which incorporates a complete, low power, 2.4 GHz radio frequency transceiver, 32-bit ARM7 core based MCU, hardware acceleration for both the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC and AES security.
