SYRACUSE, N.Y., Dec. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anaren, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANEN) announced today that it has introduced a family of four Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR™) modules designed specifically to help OEMs develop products that wirelessly communicate in compliance with the ZigBee ® standard. Based on the Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) CC2530 low-power RF SoC (which operates using TI's Z-Stack™ firmware), the new family of AIR modules is bundled with AIR Support for ZigBee – a total solution that includes time-saving AIR-ZNP firmware (including 30+ code examples), pre-certification to applicable global, regulatory standards, and development tools like the Company's new BoosterPack for TI MSP430™ and Stellaris ® LaunchPad development kits. A member of the ZigBee Alliance, Anaren unveiled the beta of its AIR module for ZigBee at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

"Not everyone seeking to comply with the ZigBee standard is prepared for the programming and RF complexities involved with this exciting wireless protocol," says Anaren Business Development Manager, Mark Bowyer. "With our new AIR modules -- and with the many value-added elements of AIR Support for ZigBee solution that surrounds these modules -- Anaren offers OEMs heading down the ZigBee path a clearer, more streamlined, and more cost-effective approach."

"TI is pleased to see Anaren add a ZigBee module and BoosterPack based on the CC2530 to the family of AIR products for TI LaunchPad development kits," said Volker Prueller, marketing director, Wireless Connectivity, TI. "With the Anaren ZigBee family, manufacturers can now more easily develop ZigBee-enabled MSP430 or Stellaris microcontroller- (MCU-) based systems, including those for ZigBee Light Link."
