ZigBee technology was developed for special wireless networks where Bluetooth & wi - fi technologies are not showing better results. In wireless personal area networks (PAN) where we need to trans mit low data rate information in comparatively large area (10 - 100 m) [1]. We can use Zigbee transceiver system instead of other technologies. As the functionality of SimpliciTI and Zigbee Technology is similar still we are pre ferring Zigbee system. So this paper will show that how Zigbee technology is different from SimpliciTI and other wireless networking technologies and what are basic advantages of Zigbee technology over other systems. To design the Zigbee transceiver system different modulation techniques can be used. In this paper, the design methodology and simulation results of ZigBee transceiver at physical layer are presented using MSK modulation technique [6].
