Nano Type ZigBee Wireless Module


AW516X developed by ZHIYUAN Electronics is a low power and high performance ZigBee module based on NXP JN5168 wireless microcontroller. Moreover, it provides a complete application integration solution based on the IEEE802.15.4 standard ISM band.

The module has been inspected and verified by the authoritative RF instruments. Combined with years of marketing experience and actual demands of users in this industry, ZHIYUAN Electronics integrates the extremely complex communication protocol of wireless products into the built-in MCU and greatly simplifies the development process of wireless products, which makes the products came to the market more quickly with a lower cost. Thanks to its ultra-small size and ultra-low power consumption, it is widely used in different intelligent devices.

Sophisticated Process and Perfect Performance
What ZLG engineers seek is following the development of intelligent products. Through the improved technology, we apply smaller components, 0.6-mm high hardness ultra-thin PCB, and high-accuracy SMT process to achieve powerful performance, but its size is reduced by 48.7%.
Excellent products originate from not only the pursuit of performance,
ut also changes in the process...

Robust FastZigBee Networking Protocol
The module integrates a robust networking transmission protocol, and can build a polymorphic network topology. In addition, it features strong practicability, high transmission rate, reliable and stable performance, simple secondary development as well as flexible engineering network layout.
Transparent Transmission
The fastZigBee adopts transparent transmission, namely the data that is sent by the sender and the data received by the receiver has the same content and length, which is equivalent to a part of an invisible transmission line.
The advantage of transparent transmission is that users can create the desired protocol format based on it and will not be limited to use the third party protocols.
Details Lead to Success
By testing and adjusting RF parameters of various accurate instruments, AW516x ensures the optimal matching of RF transmitting and receiving circuits. In addition, the maximum communication distance of high-power module measured exceeds 2km.
Sleep Power Consumption Is As Low As 100nA
Better than 100% of current ZigBee modules and suitable for occasions having high requirements on power consumption.
Serial Operation Makes the Design Simpler
The module uses a UART serial port as the user MCU control and transparent transmission interface. It is equivalent to the wireless serial port of the user MCU.
Support for Multi-Channel Remote IO/AD/PWM
The module provides multi-channel IO, AD, and PWM for users, and reads and sets remotely by the wireless mode. For some simple applications, no additional MCU is required to achieve the desired functions.
Support for Multi-Industry Wireless Protocol Stack
The AW516x series ZigBee wireless module not only supports the existing fastZigBee networking protocol,
but also supports users to make secondary development based on the standard ZigBee protocol stack.
Software Parameter Configuration and No Coding Required for Networking
