The JN5164 is an ultra low power, high performance wireless microcontroller supporting RF4CE
and IEEE802.15.4 networking stacks to facilitate the development of Home Automation,
Smart Lighting, remote control or wireless sensor applications. It features an enhanced
32-bit RISC processor with 160 kB embedded Flash, 32 kB RAM and 4 kB EEPROM memory,
offering high coding efficiency through variable width instructions, a multi-stage
instruction pipeline and low power operation with programmable clock speeds. It also
includes a 2.4 GHz IEEE802.15.4 compliant transceiver and a comprehensive mix of
analogue and digital peripherals. The very low operating current of 15 mA, with a
0.6 μA sleep timer mode, gives excellent battery life allowing operation direct from a
The peripherals support a wide range of applications. They include a 2-wire I2C, and SPI ports which can operate
as either , a four channel ADC with battery and a temperature sensor. It can support a large
switch matrix of up to 100 elements, or alternatively a 20 key capacitive touch pad.
