The MC13213 and MC13214 are both 60K flash MCU plus radio.
The MC13214 will not be sold to new customers or for new designs. The MC13214 will only be sold to customers who have done their design in the past using the Figure 8 Z-Stack. Figure 8 was purchased by Chipcon in 2006 and Chipcon was later purchased by TI in 2006.
The Z-Stack is separate licensable software; however, it can no longer (as of Aug 4, 2006) be licensed/sold to customers by FSL per our Z-Stack close-out contract/agreement with TI. However, some customers used the Z-Stack to design their FSL ZigBee solutions and are now ready to go to production. To support these customers and comply with our contract with TI (Chipcon/Figure8), we are required to charge a per unit royalty for each MC13214 shipped. This per unit royalty is included in our MC13214 pricing.
When BeeStack is available in late Jan 2007 or early Feb 2007, the device which can be used with the BeeStack will be the MC13213. The MC13213 may also be used with any SMAC or 802.15.4 MAC design that requires 60K memory. FSL will not charge a per unit royalty for use of the BeeStack when used on the MC13213. The BeeStack is licensable software, where customers will pay a one time per architecture (HCS08 or ColdFire) price ($995 single node, $1495 floating license). This one time license fee will cover all the designs the customer ever does in that architecture. This is an excellent deal as the FSL stack is less than the F8 stack and customers don't have to pay a royalty--this puts us in a good position against one of our major competitors, TI.
