Microchip PIC - Wireless Connectivity Design

Ethernet communication solutions offer access to the most widely deployed networking system. The TCP/IP protocol, which is at the core of this technology, allows total location independence and interoperability to any embedded application.

Microchip PIC - Wireless Connectivity Design

Ethernet. TCP/IP, ZigBee, MiWi - "The emerging standard for flexible wireless networking specifically designed for embedded control. ZigBee supports stars, clusters and mesh networks of up to 64k nodes. Microchip supplies a free stack that supports a variety of transceivers."

MRF24J40MA 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio transceiver module.

Has a integrated PCB antenna, matching circuitry, and supports ZigBee too. Connects to many PICs via a 4-wire SPI interface. You can design wireless sensor networks and home automation systems.


The MRF24J40 is an IEEE 802.15.4 Standard compliant 2.4 GHz RF transceiver. It integrates the PHY and MAC functionality in a single chip solution.

A frequency synthesizer is clocked by an external 20 MHz crystal and generates a 2.4 GHz RF frequency. The receiver is a low-IF architecture consisting of a Low Noise Amplifier (LNA), down conversion mixers, polyphase channel filters and baseband limiting amplifiers with a Receiver Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI).
