SD3503 : Hardware design


#1

Hello,

We would like to implement a z-wave controller on our gateway. Is the SD3503 a good choice ? I’m in charge of designing the hardware, the antenna will be done by another engineer. Do you think i can take inspiration from these documents :


Is this the reference design implemented in the ACC-UZB3-U-BRG ?

The purpose is to use it as a bridge controller for our gateway. Does the chip come already fashed with a right firmware or do we need to flash it on our own ?

Thank you in advance,
Best regards,

Aurélien
