Microchip PIC - Wireless Connectivity Design

Microchip PIC - Wireless Connectivity Design

"Ethernet communication solutions offer access to the most widely deployed networking system. The TCP/IP protocol, which is at the core of this technology, allows total location independence and interoperability to any embedded application.".
MRF24J40MA 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio transceiver module
  • Ethernet
  • TCP/IP
  • ZigBee
  • MiWi
"The emerging standard for flexible wireless networking specifically designed for embedded control. ZigBee supports stars, clusters and mesh networks of up to 64k nodes. Microchip supplies a free stack that supports a variety of transceivers."

MRF24J40MA 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio transceiver module.

Has a integrated PCB antenna, matching circuitry, and supports ZigBee too. Connects to many PICs via a 4-wire SPI interface. You can design wireless sensor networks and home automation systems.

Emulation Technology - VLSI SMT Interconnect

Emulation Technology - VLSI SMT Interconnect

IC Adapters, Test Clips, Sockets and IC Testing Accessories for QFP, BGA, PGA, PBGA, SOIC, TSOP.

Emulation Technology Inc. (ET) develops and markets specialized solutions that close the interconnect gap between electronic design, test equipment and digital hardware designs.

Emulation Technology was founded in 1983 to produce and market time-saving very large-scale integration (VLSI) and surface mount technology (SMT) adapters and accessories for engineers involved in hardware and software product development, design and test, and electronic systems manufacturing.

The ET MicroClip

The ET MicroClip is specially designed for providing new or additional test points on Printed Circuit Boards (PCB). The engineer trying to debug an existing system will find this as an indispensable tool for probing and viewing signals on a logic analyzer, oscilloscope, meter or other instrument for almost any location on the PCB with a mounted passive device.
