Oki Semiconductor and Integration Associates Announce the
Industry’s First commercially available ARM7
-
based ZigBe
e
Solution

New solution Incorporates Oki’s Single Chip IEEE802.15.4 MAC/PHY Device with
Integration’s CompXs ZigBee Stack ported to Oki’s ML67Q4050/60 ARM7
Microcontroller Series.

Sunnyvale, Calif., May 30, 2006



Oki Semiconductor, a leading technology
p
artner for the new era of digital communications and convergence, and
Integration Associates (IAI), today announced the industry’s first commercially
available ARM
-
based ZigBee platform. The platform represents the next step in a
multi
-
year licensing agree
ment between IAI and Oki. It brings IAI’s proven
network technology to the market in an easy to use fashion with an industry
standard processor on an extensible platform for rapid customer development of
embedded products that will benefit from wireless n
etworking.

The platform is based on Oki’s ML7065 radio and Oki’s ML67Q4051 MCU for the
ZigBee stack and application code. The ML7065 is a 2.4 GHz IEEE802.15.4
complete full
-
function low
-
power single chip radio solution with an embedded
802.15.4 MAC/PHY

that is ideal for ZigBee based products designed for
Industrial, Commercial, Medical and home applications such as automatic
metering, lighting automation, and HVAC systems. The ML67Q4051 is a
member of the ML67Q4050/4060 series of ARM7 based
Advantage

M
icrocontrollers. The series is very versatile, with a unique combination of

communications support, including Multi
-
Master I2C, SPI, I2S, and 9
-
bit UARTs
enabling communications with legacy 8
-
bit MCU devices. The 4050 series adds
an external bus or 68 GPI
O pins.

Integration’s CompXs ZigBee stack was ported to Oki’s modular Microcontroller
Evaluation Kit (AME
-
51) ARM evaluation platform. Oki's AME
-
51 is the lowest
priced 'complete
-
in
-
one
-
box' ARM
-
based evaluation solution in the industry. The
AME
-
51 kit
enables product designers to easily integrate Oki's 4060 Series
-

The
World's Smallest ARM
-

and 4050 Series MCUs into their designs. Based on
ARM's 32
-
bit architecture, Oki's AME
-
51 Kit provides designers with a complete
and flexible 'plug and play' evalu
ation environment that is easy to use. This
evaluation kit offers designers unique features to shorten the time to market for
their products.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Michael Gershowitz, director of Product
Marketing, Oki Semiconductor, said,


We are extremely pleased that IAI has
provided a highly effective full
-
featured ZigBee stack solution with such a small
memory footprint on Oki’s ARM MCUs. This is an enabler for new applications
that require the processing capability of ARM and the connec
tivity of ZigBee,
especially for security and control applications, which are strategic focus market
areas for Oki”.

Home automation and security systems

Rafi Fried, General Manager for

Wireless at Integration stated, “Integration is
extremely excited to announce with Oki, the worlds first commercially available
ZigBee stack running on an ARM processor. Developing a port of the stack to the
ARM processor will enable mainstream applicatio
ns such as cell phones to
partake in the home automation growth market”.

Key Features



ZigBee support on Oki’s ARM7TDMI based MCUs



Industry standard development tool support for the ARM processor



ZigBee Stack requires ~44KB of Flash for an end device and ~6
0KB of
Flash for a Coordinator. Either build utilizes ~10KB of RAM



IAI’s time tested and multi
-
platform certified ZigBee software
