ZigBee Wireless Networks and Transceivers
- Shahin Farahani, PhD, System Engineer, Freescale Semiconductor
ZigBee is a short-range wireless networking standard backed by such industry leaders as Motorola, Texas Instruments, Philips, Samsung, Siemens, Freescale, etc. It supports mesh networking, each node can transmit and receive data, offers high security and robustness, and is being rapidly adopted in industrial, control/monitoring, and medical applications. This book will explain the ZigBee protocol, discuss the design of ZigBee hardware, and describe how to design and implement ZigBee networks. The book has a dedicated website for the latest technical updates, ZigBee networking calculators, and additional materials. Dr. Farahani is a ZigBee system engineer for Freescale semiconductors Inc. The book comes with a dedicated website that contains additional resources and calculators: http://www.learnZigBee.com Table of ContentsChapter 1: ZigBeeâ¢ BasicsChapter 2: ZigBeeâ¢ / IEEE 802.15.4 Networking ExamplesChapter 3: ZigBeeâ¢ / IEEE 802.15.4 Protocol LayersChapter 4: Transceiver RequirementsChapter 5: RF Propagation, Antennas, and Regulatory RequirementsChapter 6: Battery Life AnalysisChapter 7: Location Estimating Using ZigBeeâ¢ Chapter 8: ZigBeeâ¢ CoexistenceChapter 9: Related TechnologiesAppendices
