JetHome Zigbee module ZB4C v.1 (EFR32MG21)

The module is designed to work as a Zigbee coordinator or end device as part of a Smart Home controller with the appropriate software installed and configured.

The module is based on a modern wireless microcontroller for band 2, 4GHz Silicon Labs EFR32MG21A020F1024IM32 and features high performance, high transmitter output power and compact size.

Main specifications:

  • 80MHz Arm® Cortex®-M33 processor;
  • Flash memory 1024KB;
  • SRAM 96KB;
  • Transmitter output power up to +20 dBm;
  • Power supply voltage 3.3V;
  • < li>Current consumption in active mode is not more than 200 mA.
  • The overall dimensions of the module: 28 x 18 mm.

The module is based on the circuitry of the Silabs EFR32xG21 (BRD4180B) debug board based on EFR32MG21 chip:

Supported firmware

See documentation for information on supported firmware: Software for sticks and modules based on the Silicon Labs EFR32MG21 chip

When using the firmware from the Z4 USB stick:

  • It is possible to switch to the bootloader mode when the logic level at the PB00 input is low.
  • Possible connection of LEDs to indicate the operating mode: PD02 (red LED) and PD03 (green LED). A high logic level on these pins lights up the corresponding LED.
  • The UART TX line is output to PA05, UART RX to PA06. Hardware flow control RTS/CTS is not used.
