Targeted for use in building automation, industrial monitoring and control systems, and wireless sensor networks, the chip can also be used as a general 2.4-GHz spread spectrum device. On-chip peripherals include an analog-to-digital converter, several timers including a sleep timer and watchdog, an AES-128 coprocessor, USARTs, power-on reset, brownout detection, and 21 programmable I/O pins. Development kits and samples will be available in the second quarter of 2005.
