The XYZ Sensor Node is an open source wireless sensing platform developed at ENALAB, Yale University in collaboration with Cogent Computer. The first generation of this node is designed around an ML67 series ARM/THUMB microcontroller from OKI Semiconductor and a CC2420 Zigbee compliant radio from Chipcon. The goal of this website is to create a forum for XYZ developers and users and to provide up-to-date information on our design and new applications for XYZ. The stable versions of our designs are available to the community through Cogent Computer.

Usage and Testbed
The XYZ platform is currently used both for educational purposes in EENG
460a at Yale and as part of a scalable, battery operated testbed at ENALAB.
In January 2005 XYZ will be deployed in a real operational environment. More
