VHDL Based Design and Implementation of Zigbee Transreceiver on FPGA
The emergence of wireless interface devices created a strong demand for low-data-rate short-range wireless networking. This led to the development of Zigbee standard, which is a set of new communication protocols for wireless transmission. The paper proposes a design and implementation of 2.4GHz-band Zigbee transreceiver for an acknowledgement frame. The behavior of digital transreceiver is modeled using VHDL. The code is then synthesized, simulated and implemented on Vertex-2P FPGA. Improvement is attained in terms of performance and chip-area. The Zigbee transreceiver design meets theoretical expectations.
