Features

iBeacon Location-based Messages

The KW4x is an ultra low power, highly integrated single-chip device that enables Bluetooth low energy (BLE) or IEEE Std. 802.15.4/ZigBee RF connectivity for portable, extremely low-power embedded systems. Applications include portable health care devices, wearable sports and fitness devices, AV remote controls, computer keyboards and mice, gaming controllers, access control, security systems, smart energy and home area networks.  The KW4x SoC integrates a radio transceiver operating in the 2.36GHz to 2.48GHz range supporting a range of FSK/GFSK and O-QPSK modulations, an ARM Cortex-M0+ CPU, 160KB Flash and 20KB SRAM, BLE Link Layer hardware, 802.15.4 packet processor hardware and peripherals optimized to meet the requirements of the target applications.  The KW4x’s radio frequency transceiver is compliant with Bluetooth version 4.1 for Low Energy (aka Bluetooth Smart), and the IEEE 802.15.4-2011 standard using O-QPSK in the 2.4 GHz ISM band and the IEEE 802.15.4j MBAN frequency range spanning from 2.36 GHz to 2.40 GHz. In addition, the KW4x allows the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol to be used in the MBAN frequency range for proprietary applications.

  • Enabled by Kinetis KW4x MCUs
  • Discover location-based context
  • A Bluetooth® Smart low-power application

 

Bluetooth Smart and 802.15.4 Dual Mode Communication

BLE heart rate sensor on a KW40Z connecting, pairing and exchanging data with an iPod while the 802.15.4 end device (on the same KW40Z chip) associates and exchanges data with a coordinator. The OTA packets are displayed in sniffer applications on a Windows PC.  The KW4x is an ultra low power, highly integrated single-chip device that enables Bluetooth low energy (BLE) or IEEE Std. 802.15.4/ZigBee RF connectivity for portable, extremely low-power embedded systems.
