The ZENA™ Wireless Adapter is a multifunction Universal Serial Bus (USB) wireless adapter connecting USB-equipped desktop or notebook computers with Microchip wireless products for development or application uses.
As a development tool, the ZENA Wireless Adapter can be used as a protocol analyzer or as a diagnostic tool. It can also be used to connect the computer as a wireless node to the network for application use.
The ZENA Wireless Adapter is capable of performing a variety of functions and each function can be programmed into the adapter using the USB boot loader.
The ZENA Wireless Adapter is pre-programmed with a MiWi™ Wireless Protocol Sniffer application. This allows the user to display MiWi Wireless Protocol packets in a graphical format in the Wireless Development Studio.
The MRF89XA is a single chip, multi-channel FSK/OOK transceiver capable of operating in the 863- 870 MHz and 902-928 MHz license-free ISM frequency bands, as well as the 950-960 MHz frequency band. The low-cost MRF89XA is optimized for very lowpower consumption (3 mA in Receiver mode). It incorporates a baseband modem with data rates up to 200 kb/s. Data handling features include a 64-byte FIFO, packet handling, automatic CRC generation and data scrambling. Its highly integrated architecture allows for minimum external component count while still maintaining design flexibility.
