WATERLOO, Ontario /New York Netwire/ — RoweBots Research Inc., a leading supplier in development of solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced today that it has demonstrated that its Posix-compliant Unison RTOS is compatible with the Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) module family offered for ZigBee(R) applications (part numbers A2530x24xxx) and based on Texas Instruments CC2530 System-on-Chip low-power RF chips. Combined, these components provide developers of ZigBee Pro, machine-to-machine (M2M) networks with out-of-the-box wireless connectivity in just 10 minutes.

Wireless protocols like ZigBee – enabled by sensor technologies and low-power MCU devices – are one of the key building blocks that embedded designers need to implement Internet of Things (IoT) and machine to machine communications (M2M). By providing a wide range of Unison components — such as file systems, advanced Internet protocol stacks, serial communications, system analysis, mixed TCP/IpV4/V6 and USB — RoweBots Research helps developers utilize off-the-shelf components to speed up the design process, reduce costs, and compress time to market cycles.

“We’re excited to be able to include Anaren’s AIR module in our range of IoT / M2M solutions,” said Kim Rowe, Founder and CEO of RoweBots. “This addition opens the door to a wide range of applications including home automation, building automation, lighting control, eMetering, train sensors and medical sensor networks using Zigbee Pro.”

“We’re also pleased that RoweBots Research has developed a way to further leverage our AIR modules for ZigBee applications in its portfolio of readily available components, modules, and software stacks,” said Anaren’s Corporate Business Development Manager, Mark Bowyer. “We continue to be delighted by ways consultants and other value-adding members of the embedded community are innovating ways to empower end-product developers with time- and effort-saving options.”
