Exegin Certifies its ZigBee Platform
October 1, 2008 — Exegin announced the certification of its
ZigBee® stack software and Q52/Q53 bridge/gateway hardware as a
ZigBee PRO compliant platform.
Exegin's ZigBee stack was specifically designed for more powerful
32-bit systems that provide central services in personal area
It is the first in the industry with a bridging layer that supports
multiple ZigBee radios, both real and virtual, within a single PAN
and implements the ZigBee Alliance's ZIPT internet bridge
Applications can be quickly deployed with Exegin's hardware,
a compact 32-bit PowerPC microcontroller with Ethernet and twin
802.15.4 interfaces and 2.4GHz or 900MHz radios.
Application software such as an Energy Service Portal or a
TCP/IP service can be developed using open-source development tools.
Hardware and operating system abstraction layers simplify the
porting of the stack to other RISC processors (ARM®, MIPS®, etc.)
and other operating systems.
"Certification of our ZigBee compliant platform is an essential
part of our hardware and software business.
We can now ship products that connect ZigBee PANs and host-based
applications over TCP/IP networks, allowing ZigBee devices from
many different manufacturers to be commissioned and managed from
across a room or across an ocean." said Les Mulder,
