Digi XBee SD2 ZigBee Thread-Ready RF Modules Now Available from Mouser Electronics

Print_Digi XBee ZigBee S2D Thread

Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now stocking the Thread-ready Digi XBee ® S2D ZigBee

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.
