Mouser Electronics to Distribute Helicomm’s ZigBee Modules and Development Kits Companies Partner to Promote Standards-based Networking Solutions

Mansfield, Texas (PRWEB) October 5, 2005

Mouser will initially distribute Helicomm’s EZ-Net DevKit and IP-Link embedded modules. Helicomm’s EZ-Net DevKit (EZDK 1220PA) provides a highly integrated rapid prototyping platform that provide customers the fast track to wireless connectivity based on industrial standard. The EZDK 1220PA includes 6 IP-Link 1220PA modules with USB interface and PC-based networking and management software for module provisioning and wireless network management. Helicomm’s EZDK 1220PA is now shipping and is priced at $ 2,500.

Helicomm’s 8051-based IP-Link embedded modules are IEEE 802.15.4-compliant and support Helicomm’s ZigBee-Ready networking software. Helicomm’s 8051-based IP-Link modules also support their IP-Net, an innovative “serial mesh mode”, allowing RS232/485 data streams to be transmitted over multiple hops to improve data reliability and increase transmission range.

“The partnership with Mouser Electronics is very meaningful to us,” said Helicomm president, Jack Sun. “Mouser’s tremendous customer base and local sales expertise accentuate Helicomm’s presence in North America, and expand our ability to offer cost-effective, reliable wireless products,” he added.

According to Mouser President and CEO Glenn Smith, the distribution agreement with Helicomm is in keeping with the distributor’s business model of continuing to offer the newest, most innovative products and the latest technologies to its customers.

“Mouser focuses on customers in the design-in and prototyping stages of the design cycle,” Smith said, “Helicomm’s networking solutions and technology-driven products are what those engineers need to quickly deliver state-of-the-art networked products to the market. We are excited to offer our customers the time-to-market advantage that Helicomm’s embedded solutions deliver.”
