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.
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.

IEEE802.15.4 networks including JenNet, JenNet-IP and ZigBee PRO
The JN5148-EK010 evaluation kit provides a complete environment for the development of IEEE802.15.4, JenNet and ZigBee PRO applications based on the JN5148 wireless microcontroller. The kit contains a complete package of hardware and software, including five wireless sensor nodes, an unrestricted software developer kit (SDK), and example code.
The SDK provides a complete set of development tools, software libraries and APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) for programming and controlling the on-chip peripherals of the JN5148, for configuring and managing the network and for data communication.
Out of the box, the hardware nodes are pre-programmed and demonstrate an example home sensor demo that monitors the state of sensors on the wireless nodes and presents this information on the controller node’s LCD display.

JenNet-IP EK040 Evaluation Kit
JenNet-IP is a wireless IPv6 based network solution driving the “Internet of Things”.
Based on the well established IEEE 802.15.4 2.45GHz low power radio technology, it adds the self healing JenNet tree networking stack, the IETF 6LoWPAN IP layer and “JIP”, a powerful and flexible application layer enabling interoperability between devices.
It is initially targeted at Lighting and Home Automation systems where it is rapidly becoming established as the system of choice, with provision for many different types of device, all connecting to the same wireless network.
With this solution, every device in the home can have its own IPv6 address, turning the home into a simple extension of the internet and enabling new and exciting innovations to be created in home controls and energy management.
The JenNet-IP-EK040 evaluation kit provides all the components needed to allow developers to create these new applications.
