Zigbee® Compliant Platform

Zigbee (Zigbee PRO 2015 Feature Set and Green Power) is the latest standard release by the zigbee Alliance. The BitCloud® Software Development Kit (SDK) coupled with the SAM R21 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit is a complete platform that allows developers to quickly design products meeting the latest zigbee Alliance requirements.

The BitCloud SDK is a full-featured, production grade, embedded software development platform that provides a framework with reference applications and libraries for creating zigbee compliant products.

In addition to full zigbee Pro, Green Power, Base Device Behavior (BDB) and zigbee Lighting and Occupancy (ZLO) support, the SDK also provides several zigbee application device types for home automation, lighting and control.
