modules. These powerful embedded radio frequency (RF) wireless modules provide engineers with a simple
migration path to quickly and easily incorporate into board designs. The Thread protocol is a low-power,
IPv6-addressable, self-healing mesh network with advanced security implemented at the networking layer.
The protocol provides secure, distributed short-range RF networks for the Internet of Things (IoT) market
and connected products for wireless industrial applications.
Digi XBee S2D ZigBee Thread-ready modules, available from Mouser Electronics, are based on the
same specifications as Digi’s current 802.15.4-based Series 2 Digi XBee hardware and feature a Silicon
Labs EM3587 system-on- chip (SoC) with 512 kBytes of flash and 64 kBytes of RAM, allowing for full
implementation of the full Thread protocol for end nodes and routers, when released in 2017. The module’s
SPI provides a high-speed interface and optimizes integration with embedded microcontrollers, lowering
development costs and reducing time to market.
The Digi XBee S2D modules provide transmit power of 3.1mW (6.3mW in boost mode) to offer an
indoor transmit range of up to 200 feet and an outdoor, line-of- site range of up to 4,000 feet — all packed
into the popular Digi XBee surface mount footprint and secured by 128-bit AES encryption. Because the
modules adhere to the same surface mount footprint as other Digi XBee modules and feature the
interoperability of the ZigBee standard, engineers can easily switch to other frequencies or protocols to
expand their market reach and quickly grow their businesses.
The modules are supported by the Digi XKB2-Z7T- WTZM XBee S2D ZigBee Thread-Ready Mesh Kit,
which includes three Digi XBee S2D ZigBee modules, micro-USB cables, and Digi XBee development
boards that can be used with the modular Seeed Studio Grove system, which provides interconnect
capabilities. The kit is designed for anyone interested in getting started in the world of ZigBee, while making
it easy to quickly learn more about ZigBee technology through hands-on examples in the kit.
