ZigBee Application Kit - Control and communicate using alow-cost, low-power, embedded wireless solution

Features and Benefits

Integrating Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11b) with a RabbitCore Development Kit, embedded system integrators can now enable a wireless embedded system. Wireless connectivity eliminates Ethernet cables allowing for greater flexibility and mobility of wireless embedded Networks.

LID665 Mini OEM Board

  • The LID665 Mini OEM Board is the smallest OEM Board currently available, featuring all decoder electronics on a single board.
  • It has been designed for use with external single coil antennas, such as the ANT-613 Single Coil Sensor Antenna and the ANT-614 Single Coil Square Antenna, as well as custom antennas that can be manufactured to the customer’s specifications.
  • Reader activation can be placed under software control, or can be controlled by trigger.
  • The LID665 Mini OEM Board will read both TROVAN UNIQUEª and TROVANFLEXª ID codes, and will allow operators to write to (program) TROVANFLEXª transponders.


LID-656 Economy OEM Board

  • The LID-656 Economy OEM Board is designed to work with single coil antennas.
  • It is designed to provide a low-cost solution for applications where maximized reading ranges are not a requirement.
  • Designed for use in noisy environments, it provides optimal read range for single coil antennas.
