ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute certifies new module built by Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

2/28/2016

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (29 February 2016) – The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute announced today that Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has released a new ISA100 Wireless Stack & Communication Module that has achieved ISA100 Wireless certification. The ISA100 Wireless certification provides assurance that devices using the Murata communication module will properly interoperate in all ISA100 Wireless compliant networks.

The LBBA0ZZ1EU-xxx ISA100 Wireless Stack & Communication is the newest ISA100 Wireless Compliant™ stack to be certified by the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute. 

The LBBA0ZZ1EU-xxx is a fully integrated 2.4GHz wireless module and ISA100 Wireless stack featuring a low power radio design. The LBBA0ZZ1EU module will allow device suppliers to develop ISA100 wireless products easily and efficiently.  An evaluation board, UAP sample code and an RF test tool are ready for allowing the user to implement, test and verify the ISA100 wireless device functions.
