JN5148 Wireless Microcontroller

JN5148 Wireless Microcontroller

The JN5148 is our latest generation of ultra low power, low cost wireless microcontroller for wireless sensor networking applications based on the IEEE802.15.4 standard, including JenNet, JenNet-IP and ZigBee PRO.

It offers an enhanced 32-bit RISC processor featuring improved coding efficiency and up to 32MIPs performance, a fully compliant 2.4GHz IEEE802.15.4 transceiver, 128kB of ROM and 128kB of RAM to support both the networking protocol stack and user application on-chip, and a rich mix of user peripherals.

The 32-bit RISC CPU achieves world class performance through its variable instruction width, multi-stage instruction pipeline and prioritised interrupt scheduler.

The highest levels of on-chip integration also means that the device offers many new and innovative peripheral enhancements, such as:

  • 4-wire digital audio interface that will connect directly to mainstream audio CODECs
  • Low power sleep counters designed for pulse counting in AMR applications

The JN5148 sets new benchmarks for the lowest power consumption, highest processing capability and the highest levels of integration in a single chip wireless microcontroller.

The integrated power management on the JN5148 efficiently controls the system power, enabling it to support applications that require the use of a coin cell with a 20mA limited discharge capability. With a system operating current consumption of 18mA when receiving, and 15mA when transmitting at +3dBm, the JN5148 consumes typically 35% less power than existing solutions in these modes of operation.





JN5148 ZigBee Module

Buy Now at Glyn Store!The JN5148-001-Myy family is a range of ultra low power, high performance surface mount modules targeted at low power wireless networking applications, enabling users to realise products with minimum time to market and at the lowest cost. They remove the need for expensive and lengthy development of custom RF board designs and test suites. The modules use our JN5148 wireless microcontroller to provide a comprehensive solution with large memory, high CPU and radio performance and all RF components are included.  All that is required to develop and manufacture wireless control or sensing products is to connect a power supply and peripherals such as switches, actuators and sensors, considerably simplifying product development.

Three module variants are available: JN5148-001-M00 with an integrated antenna, JN5148-001-M03 with an antenna connector and JN5148-001-M04 with an antenna connector, power amplifier and LNA for extended range.  All modules can run networking stacks such as JenNet and ZigBee PRO as well as customer applications.
