Wireless Sensor Node
SyNode™ 3010 Enables Reliable, Low Power Sensor Networks
PLANO, TX, (May 3, 2010) - SyChip, Inc., a leader in Radio Frequency Chip Scale Modules (CSM) and a
subsidiary of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., today announced the introduction of their SyNode™
wireless sensor node (SN3010). The SN3010 is the lowest-power, fully complaint ZigBee sensor node on
the market. The SN3010 facilitates reliable, energy-saving wireless networking applications and includes
the complete ZigBee Pro protocol stack supporting the ZigBee Smart Energy and Home Automation
The SN3010 is a complete ZigBee endpoint sensor node with integrated temperature, humidity, and light
sensors. Using SyChip's power-management protocol with one transmission per minute, these sensor
nodes can last up to 15 years using two AA batteries. The SN 3010 measures 729 mm² (1.13 square
inches), and offers best-in-class ZigBee RF receiver sensitivity at -99dBm. It can be used as a standalone sensor node or integrated with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products.
"SyChip's leadership in the integration of small, high-performance wireless modules and sensing
capabilities combined with full software support enables us to be at the forefront of the emerging
applications of wireless sensors," said Dr. Moses Asom President and Co-founder of SyChip Inc. "With
SyNode's compact size, best-in-class radio performance, and low power consumption, end users now
have a plug-n-play sensor node that can be used for remote temperature, humidity, and light monitoring
in a home, office, or datacenter environment."
The SN3010 is currently sampling and are priced between $16 and $32 in low volumes. For additional
