Reference Design: Mini-Z® Z-PAN® 28-Pin Module (Z16F28ZP100MODG)

The Mini-Z® Z-PAN 28-Pin Module Reference Design is a stand-alone 802.15 Personal Area Network module that is produced in a 28-pin Dual Inline Pin package. The Mini-Z Z-PAN 28-Pin Module integrates Zilog’s powerful ZNEO microcontroller with a Roving Networks 2402–2480 MHz RN-41 Personal Area Network Module.

Designed for the hobbyist, student and engineer to quickly develop prototypes, proof of concept and demonstrations as well as provide the functionality required for hands-on learning, the Module is designed to be pin-compatible with other vendors' basic stamp modules. This flexibility allows you to utilize different vendor’s base boards that you may already have in your arsenal.

Mini-Z Z-PAN 28-Pin Module Features

  • Powerful 16-bit CISC microcontroller
  • 128 KB of Flash program space with 16-bit access and in-circuit programming
  • 4 KB internal RAM with 16 bit access
  • 24-bit address space
  • 24-bit stack with overflow protection
  • Direct register-to-register architecture, allows each memory address to function as an accumulator. This improves execution time and decreases the required program memory
  • 5.5 V to 15 V input with internal 5 V and 3.3 V regulation
  • 4-channel, 10-bit ADC
  • Analog Comparator
  • Internal Precision Oscillator
  • I2C Master/Slave Controller
  • Enhanced Serial Peripheral Interface (ESPI)
  • Three standard 16-bit timers with capture, compare and PWM capability
  • 12-bit PWM module with three complementary pairs, or six independent PWM outputs, with deadband generation and fault trip input
  • 24 interrupts with programmable priority
  • Watchdog Timer with Internal RC Oscillator
  • On-Chip Debugger
  • Voltage Brown-Out protection (VBO)
  • Power-On Reset (POR)
  • Low Power modes

Networking Support

  • Secure wireless authentication
    • Class 1 Radio: 330’ (100 m) distance
    • Frequency: 2402–2480 MHz
    • FHSS/GFSK modulation: 79 channels at 1 MHz intervals
    • Secure communications: 128-bit encryption
    • Error correction for guaranteed packet delivery
    • UART local and over-the-air RF configuration
    • Autodiscovery/pairing requires no software configuration (instant cable replacement)
    • Autoconnect master, I/O pin (DTR) and character-based trigger modes
  • Built in networking applications:
    • Embedded stack profiles included (requires no host stack): GAP, SDP, RFCOMM and L2CAP Protocols, with SPP and DUN profile support
    • Bluetooth SIG qualified; end product listing
    • Certifications: FCC, ICS, CE
  • Fully qualified Bluetooth 1.1/1.0/1.2/1.1 Module
  • Bluetooth v2.0+EDR support

This Module ships preprogrammed with a boot loader and a control shell and is fully compatible with the ZDS II for ZNEO tools suite, which is available as a free download in the Zilog Store.
