General Purpose Z-Wave® SiP Module

The ZM5101 combines a Z-Wave SD3502 SoC with a built-in microcontroller and Z-Wave RF transceiver, crystal, and passive RF components within a single 8x8mm module. This makes the ZM5101 ideal for small-footprint, single microcontroller products. The ZM5101's large I/O count, and memory support compact, single microcontroller Z-Wave solutions for complex applications.


Target Applications:

  • Remote controls
  • Door locks
  • Lighting control
  • Thermostats
  • Single-chip applications

Target Markets:

  • Consumer Electronics
  • Home Control
