ZiLOG keeps improving IrDA
Posted on 27-Apr-2004 08:41 | Tags Filed under: News



ZiLOG, the creator of the Z80 microprocessor, announced the embedded industry's first 8-bit Flash-based solution for wireless IrDA connectivity. The new solution, ZirDA, is an embedded software product that will be offered with the company's eZ80Acclaim! microcontrollers (MCUs).

ZiLOG is a major supplier of 8-bit microcontrollers. Similarly, the company maintains its market leadership position in the universal remote control business. The new solution is a highly optimized IrDA compliant protocol stack software with a layered set of embedded protocols that enables a total transfer solution via infrared medium.

"ZiLOG's leadership in key IrDA standards organization has helped ensure quality code compliance with IrDA specifications, offering complete IrDA functionality," said Michael Gershowitz, director of MicroDevices product marketing at ZiLOG. "Our new solution is unique because it is configurable, scalable and modular in design. It provides a rich set of features implemented via easy-to-use and well-documented APIs. Coupled with our eZ80Acclaim! flash MCUs and IrDA transceivers, we can now provide the embedded industry's first complete solution for flash-based wireless IrDA connectivity for consumer and business end-users. As a result, upgradeability is maintained, and development cycle time and total cost of ownership are reduced."

ZirDA will be used with ZiLOG's eZ80Acclaim! family of flash MCUs (including the eZ80F91/eZ80F92/eZ80F93 microcontrollers), the romless eZ80L92 microprocessor and ZiLOG's ZHX-series IrDA(1) transceivers. The new software supports applications in portable office equipment, wireless serial adapters, cell phones, PDAs, pagers, digital cameras, and emerging markets such as fixed IrDA online access beacons. Based on ZiLOG's Real-Time Kernel RZK, the software is integrated with the main user application software required to complete the wireless IrDA communication system.
