Jennic has announced that its modules based on the JN5139 wireless microcontroller family now comply with FCC and ETSI regulations in the USA and Europe, with certification now received from both regulatory authorities.
The significance is that system manufacturers implementing Jennic’s modules in their IEEE802.15.4 and ZigBee applications can save weeks of time and costs in performing the RF regulatory testing, resulting in products being commissioned quicker.

Jennic’s modules were designed to meet FCC and ETSI regulations at the time of launch earlier this year, and now the products have received full certification. In the USA, this means a modular approvals certificate is available, stating that an end product which incorporates an approved module does not need to perform RF tests again to receive FCC certification for the end product. In Europe, a test report is available stating that the modules comply with ETSI standard ETS 300 328, which can then be used as part of the technical construction file to demonstrate compliance with the radio sections of European EMC regulations. All of Jennic’s modules also comply with RoHS regulations.

The JN5139 module product range is based on the JN5139 wireless microcontroller and includes versions with in-built ceramic antenna, SMA connector for evaluation purposes, and the space saving uFl connector for high volume production. The JN5139 is a low power, low cost wireless microcontroller designed for battery-powered applications in wireless sensor networks based on IEEE802.15.4 and ZigBee standards, integrating a 32-bit RISC processor, with a fully compliant 2.4GHz IEEE802.15.4 transceiver, 192kB of ROM, a selection of RAM sizes from 8kB to 96kB, plus analog and digital peripherals. The integrated memory stores system software, including protocol stacks, routing tables and application code/data, and each device integrates hardware MAC and AES encryption accelerators, power saving and timed sleep modes, and mechanisms for security key and program code encryption.
