ZigUNO – An Arduino UNO-sized Zigbee board that works with PTVO firmware

ZigUNO Zigbee development board comes with an Ebyte E18-MS1 module equipped with Texas Instruments SimpleLink CC2530 8051 Zigbee microcontroller and follows Arduino UNO form for Arduino Shield compatibility.

The board works with PTVO Zigbee firmware that comes with a graphical configuration tool to select the Zigbee chip used (CC2530), configure I/O behavior (input/output, pull-up, etc…), and more. The developers also suggest using DIYRuZ projects as examples to get started.

ZigUNO Arduino Zigbee boardZigUNO board specifications:

  • Zigbee module – Ebyte E18-MS1-PCB module with TI SimpleLink CC2530 8051 microcontroller with Zigbee 3.0 (and IEEE 802.15.4) connectivity, 256kB Flash and 8kB RAM, PCB antenna
  • Expansion – Arduino UNO headers (3.3V only, not 5V tolerant)
  • Power Supply – 5V up to 1.5A via 5.5/2.1mm DC jack, 2-pin terminal block, or micro USB port
  • Dimensions – 82x54x13 (Arduino UNO form factor)
  • Temperature Range – 0 to 50°C

You’ll find the hardware design files including EasyEDA PDF schematics, BoM, and Gerber files on Github, all released under a GPL 3.0 license. The board is sold for $15 on Tindie but is currently out of stock. Note that the board is designed by mind.in.ua, a Ukrainian company based in Odessa, and I suppose it would ship from there if there is stock.

Wow cc2530 still exists?
We played with them in 2006 or so at university (pre iPhone times) and found the 8051 is a nuisance due to lack of flexibility even we had the CC suitcase dev pack. In the end we changed to the older CC2420 with ATMega128, as it offered much more flexibility. Nowadays I guess would go with an NRF52XX or similar chip from TI instead. Or soon with ESP32-H4 maybe?

I think they used EFR32MG21 and moved to TI CC2652 in new release.

Second thing…

Is there now a freely available compiler, or still only the quite restrictively livensed TI one?

Seems easier nowadays when I see its supported by. 3rd party stacks etc.

It does not cost money but you have to register an account with your email to download it so it is technically free.

CC2530 is obsolete so wondering why they did not go with a CC2652 based module instead?

If they used CC2652 then it would be compatible with Thread Spinel RPC firmware and thus future proof for Matter/CHIP

Pity ptvo is closed source and charges for the really useful bits (like power saving for battery powered devices). The real usefulness of zigbee is in battery powered devices.
