ZigBee is an IEEE 802.15.4-based wireless protocol designed by the Zigbee Alliance. The ZigBee 3.0 is a reliable, low-power and interoperable protocol, and shows high immunity in noisy RF environments. The ZigBee 3.0 certification ensures the interoperability of products, even if they come from different vendors.
ZigBee 3.0 is therefore ideal for home automation applications, medical device data collection, and for other applications with low-power low-bandwidth needs, designed for small-scale wireless projects. The well-known STM32WB 2.4GHz wireless MCUs offer a free, comprehensive, robust and certified environment including the ZigBee 3.0 software stack.
Using ZigBee 3.0 allows developers to speed up the certification process and reduces product development costs.
