Key features and benefits
-- ZigBee RF4CE specification is based on IEEE 802.15.4. MAC/PHY radio technology in the 2.4 GHz unlicensed frequency band and is designed for a wide range of remotely-controlled audio/visual consumer electronics products, such as televisions and set-top boxes
-- RF-based remotes are faster and more reliable, offer enhanced functionality only possible through RF, and give consumers more freedom to operate devices from greater distances, removing the line-of-sight barrier of today's infrared (IR) remotes
-- The RemoTI development kit provides an easy-to-use, intuitive software architectural framework and all the tools and support necessary to get a ZigBee RF4CE-compliant product to market fast with minimal cost

-- Full ZigBee RF4CE protocol stack featuring sample application code, easy remote control kit with target board, simple API or optional direct RF4CE interface, and reference designs
