The kit helps prototype, evaluate, and demonstrate real-life applications using the Zig-Bee wireless sensor spec. ZigBee is billed as the only standard that specifically addresses the typical needs of wireless control and monitoring applications. The kit includes software called Z-Stack from Figure 8 Wireless. The Z-Stack object code, tools, and documentation will be available for download after purchase of the development kit. IEEE 802.15.4 MAC source code will continue to be provided separately and free of charge under a license agreement.
