With the Z1 low-power wireless module, Zolertia launches the first public release of its WSN mote, its flagship product.
The Z1 module is a general purpose development platform for wireless sensor networks (WSN) designed for researchers, developers, enthusiasts and hobbyists. It is a platform compatible with the successful Tmote™-family motes with several enhancements that offers roughly a 2x performance in several aspects.

Equipped with two on board digital sensors (accelerometer and temperature), it comes with everything a developer needs to start building smart networks from scratch. You can connect your applications directly to the Internet of Things (IoT) with IPv6.
The Z1 module was devised keeping in mind:
- Backwards compatibility with motes based on MSP430+CC2420 as well as support for some of the most currently employed open source O.S.’s/stacks by the WSN community, like TinyOS (current) or Contiki (soon).
- Maximum flexibility and expandability while improving low power consumption with most versatile and low power sensors and uC.
