ZMD ZWIR4512 Wireless Data Communication Module

ZMD introduced the ZWIR4512 wireless data communication module for sensors and other small devices. The ZWIR4512 implements full data networking based on the IPv6 Internet protocol. 6LoWPAN is used to optimize IPv6 packets for embedded low-power device networks. Data encryption and authentication is provided by the Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) protocol suite. IPSec keys can be exchanged and renewed automatically based on the Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) protocol. The ZMD ZWIR4512 IPv6 wireless module features a 32-bit ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller, GPIO and peripheral interfaces, and up to 192kB of flash memory and 32kB of RAM for the user application.
