Microsemi And Virtual Extension Team To Enable Lowest Power Sub-GHz Mesh Network For Coin Cell Powered And Energy Harvest Applications

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, and Virtual Extension, a leading wireless mesh networks company based in Beit-Dagan, Israel, today announced a two-chip wireless mesh network chipset and reference design that brings a new level of performance and signal robustness to applications requiring networks with high performance and ultra-low power consumption. The reference design features Microsemi's ZL70250 chip scale package (CSP) radio frequency (RF) transceiver for industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) band applications and Virtual Extension's VE209M wireless mesh controller. The combination provides system engineers with an ultra-low power, high-performance solution to build wireless sensing networks with no single point-of-failure and extremely robust operation. This chipset is designed to be the ultimate choice for energy-harvesting powered or battery-operated wireless mesh applications.

"Our jointly designed solutions allows network users to have access to the next-generation of wireless mesh networks with ultra-low-power consumption, without a need to trade off important features," said Stephen Swift,  senior vice president and business unit manager of the Ultra Low-Power Products Group at Microsemi. "Demand for low power and high performance wireless sensor networks is growing quickly and we will continue to collaborate with industry leaders such as Virtual Extension to deliver leading-edge solutions to meet changing industry needs."

"This reference design provides our customers with a proven path towards high performance, low power consumption and low cost network solutions," said Yariv Oren, CEO of Virtual Extension. "Microsemi brings the ultra-low-power transceivers that, when combined with our 'diversity path mesh' technology, results in networks that are easier to design and build, are much more robust, easier to install and maintain, and can easily use energy harvesting."

The ZL70250 CSP is an ultra low power RF transceiver operating in the unlicensed frequency bands between 795 and 965 megahertz (MHz) and delivers a data rate of 186 kilobits per second (kbps) at 2 milliamps (mA) of current required to transmit and receive data, enabling extremely long battery life and miniaturization. These two features are particularly important for applications using energy harvesting and battery-powered wireless sensor networks.
