Z-Stack

By Texas Instruments, Inc.

Z-Stack 3.0.x is TI’s Zigbee 3.0 compliant protocol suite for the CC2530, CC2531, and CC2538 Wireless MCU.

Supports the CC2592 and CC2590 RF front ends which extend up to +22dBm and +14dBm transmit power, respectively, and provide improved receiver sensitivity
Z-Stack 3.0 combines multiple previous Zigbee profiles into one unified standard
Incorporates the unified Zigbee Cluster Library which is at the foundation of dotdot, the universal language for IoT applications defining data objects, models and functionalities for embedded IoT applications
Implements Zigbee Base Device Behavior specification, which defines a common set of mechanisms for network forming, discovering, and application provisioning to be used by all Zigbee devices
Based on Zigbee PRO 2015 stack, it provides new and improved security modes, including Install Codes for out-of-band key exchange, and Distributed Security Networks for Coordinator-less network topology
Supports Green Power Proxy, allowing energy-harvesting and ultra-low power devices to connect seamlessly to a Zigbee network
Forwards and backwards compatibility with previous Zigbee PRO and application profiles is maintained
Sample Applications included for quick prototyping, including door lock, thermostat, light and switch, and temperature sensor
Zigbee Network Processor firmware, providing an abstracted access to the Zigbee Pro 2015 stack and Base Device Behavior functionality via a serial port for two-chip architectures Zigbee-based applications
Over-the-air firmware upgrade and serial bootloader capability, allowing for future updates of deployed systems
Compatible with TI’s Z-Stack Linux Gateway, a reference implementation of an Ethernet-to-Zigbee gateway using a Linux-based platform as host processor, that makes it easy to integrate applications on top of an IP-based interface which abstracts Zigbee protocol functionality to the users.
