ZigBee Alliance Expands Activities

The ZigBee Alliance, an industry group promoting low-cost, low-power wireless networks based on the ZigBee specification, announced a new level of membership, the Adopter Class, designed for companies looking to quickly and cost-effectively bring ZigBee-based products to market.

The Alliance is looking to expand its activities following the ratification of the final ZigBee specification in December 2004.

Adopter Class membership provides companies access to all final, approved ZigBee specifications. As these members develop, deliver and receive certification for their ZigBee products, they can use the ZigBee logo and marketing collateral to promote them. In addition, Adopter Class members will be able to attend interoperability events and ZigBee Alliance-sponsored workshops and developer conferences.

More than 27 companies are expected to demonstrate 802.15.4 and ZigBee-ready products at the Alliance's upcoming meeting in San Francisco. These companies include: Airbee, Atmel, Cirronet, Chipcon, Crossbow, CompXs, Daintree Networks, Dust Networks, Ember, EnOcean, Figure 8 Wireless, Freescale, Frontline Test Equipment, Helicomm, Integration Associates, Jennic Inc., Korwin, Luxoft, Microchip, Nanotron, OKI, Renesas, Sensicast, Silicon Laboratories, Software Technologies Group, UBEC, and ZMD. http://www.zigbee.org
