The article presents information on a 12-page white paper titled, "802.15.4/ZigBee Options and Issues," from Atmel Corp. which details the differences and the impact of ZigBee and 802.15.4 on product development. Because ZigBee is a superset of IEEE 802.15.4, a ZigBee-certified application must adhere to both standards. In contrast, an 802.15.4 application does not have to conform to the Zig-Bee standard.
