Micro/sys Releases the First Rugged USB-Compatible Zigbee® "No Strings/Cables Attached" Transceiver

Montrose, CA... The new Micro/sys USB1320 Zigbee wireless transceiver paves the way for this popular wireless communication standard to be added to embedded systems and still meet the reliability demands of volatile environments. The "no strings/cables" benefit is achieved by using the rugged StackableUSB™ electrical specification, which does not require a cable to access USB technology. As a result, industrial-grade shocks and vibrations are more easily tolerated. The very compact footprint of 1.85” x 1.78”, one-quarter the size of the 104™ Form Factor, makes the USB1320 ideal for demanding applications confined to small, tight spaces and for reception in challenging environments.

This RoHS-compliant board can be configured with any of three Digi® XBee® modules: the Xbee ZB, XBee-Pro ZB, or XBee-Pro 900/DigiMesh™. Each comes equipped with four 10-bit A/D, seven digital I/O, and two pulse width modulators. The USB1320 supports Point-to-Point, Point-to-Peer, Point-to-Multipoint, and Mesh topologies, and operates in extended temperatures. The USB1320 can connect to desktop PCs and laptops via a Type B mini-USB connector for easy development. And with designers in mind, Micro/sys offers an easy-to-use development kit that includes the board with all options installed, a complete cable set, sample software, full documentation, and more.

The basic USB1320 starts at $135 in single quantity. Significant OEM discounts are available. Contact Technical Sales Dept., Micro/sys, Inc., 3730 Park Place, Montrose, CA 91020, phone (818) 244-4600, FAX (818)244-4246, email:, URL:
