JN5168 Available Directly From Manufacturer QUOTE

The JN516x series is a range of ultra low power, high performance wireless microcontrollers supporting JenNet-IP, ZigBee PRO or RF4CE networking stacks to facilitate the development of Home Automation, Smart Energy, Light Link and Remote control applications. They feature an enhanced 32- bit RISC processor with embedded Flash and EEPROM memory, offering high coding efficiency through variable width instructions, a multi-stage instruction pipeline and low power operation with programmable clock speeds. They also include a 2.4 GHz IEEE802.15.4 compliant transceiver and a comprehensive mix of analogue and digital peripherals. Three memory configurations are available to suit different applications. The best in class operating current of 15 mA, with a 0.6 μA sleep timer mode, gives excellent battery life allowing operation direct from a coin cell.

The peripherals support a wide range of applications. They include a 2-wire IC, and SPI ports which can operate as either master or slave, a four channel ADC with battery and a temperature sensor. It can support a large switch matrix of up to 100 elements, or alternatively a 20 key capacitive touch pad.
