Ensuring The Co-Existence Of IEEE 802.15.4-Based Systems At 2.4 GHz
By NXP Semiconductors
This document aims to highlight the issues affecting the co-existence of IEEE 802.15.4-based systems in the presence of interference. The measures employed by the 802.15.4 standard to ensure reliable co-existence are outlined. The practical performance of an IEEE 802.15.4-based system is established with reference to supporting empirical and simulated data. Finally, guidelines are provided for installing sensor networks in either a planned or an unplanned RF environment.

Spotlight On Wireless Technology

Digital Oscilloscope
The RTE series of digital oscilloscopes can be used in embedded design development, for general debugging purposes, and for power electronics analysis. Several different models are available with variations in bandwidth and number of channels.
