The ZWIR4532 connectivity module is offered as a complete sub-gigahertz wireless radio with open standard in a small form factor. Also provided is the optional IDT SensorShare firmware – a 6LoWPAN open standard stack that communicates natively with IPv6 over IEEE 802.15.4 radio links, which has no associated license fees or royalties.

The low power consumption and small form factor of the ZWIR4532 is approximately half that of other ZWIR45xx modules. This, says the company, makes it ideal for embedding into a variety of IoT-connected consumer, industrial, and medical devices with space constraints, including home automation devices, factory automation monitors, environmental sensors, and LED lamps for smart city applications.

“Product designers can create a wide range of securely connected IoT devices thanks to our new ZWIR4532 module, which combines our proven 6LoWPAN wireless connectivity and SensorShare firmware that give it many advantages over competitors’ modules,” says Sailesh Chittipeddi, IDT’s executive vice president for global operations and chief technology officer. “The ZWIR4532 is an example of our commitment to providing complete solutions that address the need for secure IoT connectivity, and expand on our popular ZWIR45xx family of modules.”

The ZWIR4532 incorporates an Arm microcontroller, a sub-gigahertz radio transceiver, and optional license-free IDT firmware download. It supports native communication with computers and mobile devices through IPv6, the ability to create self-healing ad-hoc mesh networks for covering large areas and long ranges, and secure connectivity based on open standard security protocols.

The module is also ideal for battery-powered devices as its low power requirements maximize battery life, says the company. The ZWIR4532 6LoWPAN wireless IoT connectivity module is currently available.
