New Re-Mote platform (cc2538 with extra sub-1Ghz RF) and challenge


Apologies if you receive multiple messages.

Sorry for the commercial post, we (at Zolertia) are about to launch a new platform: The Re-Mote, I wanted to share with you a food-for-thought challenge for the opportunity to become a beta tester and win one of the 50 Re-Motes we are to give for the best ideas.

The challenge website is:

The Re-Mote is a CC2538-based platform which features an ARM Cortex M3 with 512KB flash, 32Kb RAM, double RF interface, and the following goodies:

  • ISM 2.4-GHz IEEE 802.15.4 & Zigbee compliant.
  • ISM 868-, 915-, 920-, 950-MHz ISM/SRD Band.
  • AES-128/256, SHA2 Hardware Encryption Engine.
  • ECC-128/256, RSA Hardware Acceleration Engine for Secure Key Exchange.
  • Power consumption down to 3uA using our shutdown mode.
  • Co-Processor to allow peripheral energy management, programming over BSL without requiring to press any button to enter bootloader mode.
  • Built-in battery charger (500mA), Energy Harvesting and Solar Panels to be connected to standards LiPo batteries.
  • Power input with wide range 2-26VDC.
  • Small form-factor (as the Z1 mote, half the size of an Arduino) 57x35 mm.

More information about the platform can be found at:

Support for Contiki is done (yet to be merged) and RIOT is coming along.

Production is expected to be done on Q3, pre-sale price is €46.
