ZigBee wireless network processor supports three ZigBee standards for one end-device

The CC2538 is said to be the first ZigBee wireless network processor to handle the three most widely used ZigBee standards — ZigBee Smart Energy, ZigBee Home Automation, and ZigBee Light Link. The CC2538 ZigBee network processor and Z-Stack 2.5 with ZigBee and ZigBee PRO support can be tailored for specific end-devices. With a CC2538-enabled device, consumers can more easily network within their homes as well as monitor and connect to the smart grid. The CC2538 features a IEEE 802.15.4 radio and a ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller system. All security operations are handled by dedicated accelerators, leaving enough processing power and memory to handle multiple ZigBee standards concurrently.

Volume production and sale through authorized distributors is expected in the first quarter of 2013.
