TRANSCEIVER IC
CELs MeshConnect EM35x Mini Modules use the Ember EM35x transceiver (EM357 or EM358x) IC. The IC
incorporates a RF transceiver with baseband modem, a hardwired MAC and an embedded ARM® Cortex-M3
microcontroller, offering an excellent low cost, high performance solution for all IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee/Thread
applications. For more information about the EM35x IC, visit www.silabs.com.
ANTENNA
CEL’s MeshConnect EM35x Mini Modules include an integrated Printed Circuit Board (PCB) trace antenna.
An optional configuration which uses a castellation pin on the module allows the user to connect an external
antenna. The ZICM35xSP0 has been certified with the PCB trace antenna and two external antennas (E-2820-
CA, LSR 001-0100). The ZICM35xSP2 has been certified with the PCB trace antenna and a Nearson half-wave
dipole antenna (part number: S181AH-2450S) on a 4 inch cable using the castellation pin of the module. Please
refer to the document Mini Module External Antenna Implementation for details describing the requirements that
must be followed to take advantage of the CEL certification. See Ordering Information on Page 3.
The PCB antenna employs a topology that is compact and highly efficient. To maximize range, an adequate ground
plane must be provided on the host PCB. Correctly positioned, the ground plane on the host PCB will contribute
significantly to the antenna performance (it should not be directly under the module PCB Antenna). The position of
the module on the host board and overall design of the product enclosure contribute to antenna performance. Poor
design affects radiation patterns and can result in reflection, diffraction and/or scattering of the transmitted signal.
For optimum antenna performance, the MeshConnect Modules should be mounted with the PCB trace antenna
overhanging the edge of the host board. To further improve performance, a ground plane may be placed on the
host board under the module, up to the antenna (a minimum of 1.5" x 1.5" is recommended). The installation of
an uninterrupted ground plane on a layer directly beneath the module will also allow you to run traces under this
layer. CEL can provide assistance with your PCB layout.
The following are some design guidelines to help ensure antenna performance:
Never place the ground plane or route copper traces directly underneath the antenna portion of the module
Never place the antenna close to metallic objects
In the overall design, ensure that wiring and other components are not placed near the antenna
Do not place the antenna in a metallic or metalized plastic enclosure
Keep plastic enclosures 1cm or more away from the antenna in any direction
This radio transmitter IC: 8254A-ZICM357SP0 & IC: 8254A-ZICM357SP2 has been approved by IC Canada
to operate with the antenna types listed above with the maximum permissible gain of 2dBi. Antenna types not
included in this list, having a gain greater than the maximum gain indicated for that type, are strictly prohibited
for use with this device.
Cet émetteur radio IC: 8254A-ZICM357SP0 & IC: 8254A-ZICM357SP2 a été approuvé par IC Canada pour
fonctionner avec les types d'antenne énumérés ci-dessus avec le gain maximal admissible de 2dBi. Types
d'antennes non inclus dans cette liste, ayant un gain supérieur au gain maximum indiqué pour ce type, sont
strictement interdits pour une utilisation avec cet appareil.
POWER AMPLIFIER
CEL’s MeshConnect EM35x High Power Mini Module (ZICM35xSP2) includes a Power Amplifier (PA). This PA
delivers high efficiency, high gain and high output power (Pout = +20.0dBm typical) to provide an extended range
and reliable transmission for fewer nodes in a network. For the ZICM35xSP2, Power Mode 2 with Power Setting
-2 is the maximum setting allowed for FCC Compliance. Operating in Power Mode 3 at higher power settings
may damage the PA.

USB
The ZICM3588SPx-x Modules have an integrated USB 2.0-compliant, full-speed (12Mbps) device peripheral. For
more information, refer to the EM35x SoC Datasheet link provided in the References Section of this document.
SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE
CEL’s MeshConnect EM35x Mini Modules are ideal platforms for EmberZNet PRO, the industry’s most deployed
and field proven ZigBee compliant stack supporting the ZigBee PRO feature set. EmberZNet PRO is a complete
ZigBee protocol software package containing all the elements required for mesh networking applications. The
ZICM3588SPx variants are also ideal platforms for Thread, an IP-based mesh networking stack that allows direct
IPv6 connectivity to all devices within the network. For more information regarding the software development for
the EM35x IC family, visit www.silabs.com.
CEL provides reference software that runs multiple functions and executes various commands. For example,
users can set up a simple ZigBee network to perform Range and Packet Error Rate (PER) tests between two
devices. This allows the user to evaluate the module's RF performance in their own environment. The software
can also place the module in various operating modes which allows for testing of low-level RF performance,
GPIO functionality, etc.
The ZICM35xSP0 Module uses the transceiver's primary RF ports for transmitting and should use Power Mode 1
(EMBER_TX_POWER_MODE_BOOST in the EmberZNet API).
The ZICM35xSP2 Module uses the transceiver's alternate RF ports for transmitting and should use Power Mode 2
(EMBER_TX_POWER_MODE_ALTERNATE in the EmberZNet API). GPIO PC5 must also be configured as
ALT_OUT (push/pull).

Pb-Free Solder Paste
Use of “No Clean” soldering paste is strongly recommended, as it does not require cleaning after the soldering process.
Note: The quality of solder joints on the castellations ("half vias") where they contact the host board should meet the appropriate IPC
Specification. See the Castellated Terminations Section in the latest IPC-A-610 Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies document.
Cleaning
In general, cleaning the populated module is strongly discouraged. Residuals under the module cannot be easily
removed with any cleaning process.
Cleaning with water can lead to capillary effects where water is absorbed into the gap between the host
board and the module. The combination of soldering flux residuals and encapsulated water could lead to
short circuits between neighboring pads. Water could also damage any stickers or labels.
Cleaning with alcohol or a similar organic solvent will likely flood soldering flux residuals into the two
housings, which is not accessible for post-washing inspection. The solvent could also damage any
stickers or labels.
Ultrasonic cleaning could damage the module permanently.
The best approach is to consider using a “No Clean” solder paste and eliminate the post-soldering cleaning step.
Optical Inspection
After soldering the module to the host board, consider optical inspection to check the following:
• Proper alignment and centering of the module over the pads
• Proper solder joints on all pads
• Excessive solder or contacts to neighboring pads or vias
Repeating Reflow Soldering
Only a single reflow soldering process is encouraged for host boards.
Wave Soldering
If a wave soldering process is required on the host boards due to the presence of leaded components, only a
single wave soldering process is encouraged.
Hand Soldering
Hand soldering is possible. When using a soldering iron, follow IPC recommendations (reference document IPC-7711).

Rework
The MeshConnect Module can be unsoldered from the host board. Use of a hot air rework tool should be
programmable and the solder joint and module should not exceed the maximum peak reflow temperature
of 250ºC.
Caution
If temperature ramps exceed the reflow temperature profile, module and component damage may occur due to
thermal shock. Avoid overheating.
Warning
Never attempt a rework on the module itself (i.e., replacing individual components); such actions will terminate
warranty coverage.
Additional Grounding
Attempts to improve the module or the system grounding by soldering braids, wires or cables onto the module
RF shield cover is done at the customer's own risk. The ground pins at the module perimeter should be sufficient
for optimum immunity to external RF interference.
