Z9-PC / Z9-PC-SR001
User & Reference Manual
1. Overview
Thank you for purchasing the FreeWave Z9-PC / Z9-PC-SR001.
ZumLink is the latest generation of radios offered by FreeWave and consists of enclosed and
board level radios.
lZ9-PC is a board level 900MHz OEM Ethernet radio module.
lZ9-PC-SR001 is a board level 900MHz OEM Ethernet radio module with an RJ-45
Ethernet connector.
The Z9-PC or Z9-PC-SR001 are radio modules ideally suited for OEM applications where it will
be embedded in the OEM product. It is built with the smallest possible footprint and with minimal
industry standard physical connectivity. The intent is for the user to design their own custom
interface to the radio module.
The interface board in the Z9-PC-DEVKIT is not intended to be used in the field. Rather it is a
temporary mechanism to allow a user to evaluate the radio modules without needing to first
design their own interface. If the user desires a ZumLink Ethernet product that has industry
standard connectivity built-in, models Z9-P or Z9-PE should be considered.
The Z9-PC / Z9-PC-SR001 900MHz Series:
lOperates in the unlicensed 900MHz ISM band (902-928 MHz).
lProvides a maximum of 30dBm transmit output power.
lIs FCC compliant as both a Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) and a Digital
Modulating (DM) radio.
lProvides ZumIQ, a Linux-based application environment for the deployment of applications
at the edge
lHas one Ethernet port, two serial ports, and one micro USB port.

Note: The frequency hopping capability is available at all bandwidths and the single channel (DM)
operation is available for bandwidths of at least 500 kHz.
1.1. Communication Method
ZumLink uses Listen Before Talk (LBT) and Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) where there
are no assigned slots. The radios transmit when the channel is clear.
lThe Gateway broadcasts packets to all Endpoints within range.
lThe Endpoints unicast packets back to the Gateway.
lThe Gateway acknowledges the Endpoint packets.
FreeWave’s traditional protocol has a Gateway Time Slot and an Endpoint Time Slot within a
frame.
lThe Gateway transmits in its slot and listens in the Endpoint slot.
lThe Endpoint transmits its slot and listens in the Gateway slot.
1.2. ZumBoost Technology
ZumLink incorporates ZumBoost technology using four performance-enhancing algorithms used
together or independently to improve throughput in the most demanding RF environments:
1.2.1. Adaptive Spectrum Learning
lLearns which RF signals are part of the ZumLink network and which are not, reducing bad
packets and retransmissions.
lStandard on all ZumLink radios, the "Listen Before Talk" algorithm provides spectrum
monitoring, delivering network intelligence and increasing throughputs in noisy
environments.
1.2.2. Forward Error Correction
lThe fecRate (on page 204) increases the reliability of the data transferred over the air at the
cost of some transmission throughput.
lImproves sensitivity by 3dB to maximize range and link range in noisy environments.
lAdds redundant information to a data stream to detect packet errors and corrects them to
avoid retransmission of the packet.
1.2.3. Packet Aggregation
lThe aggregateEnabled (on page 202) setting increases throughput of small packets by
combining multiple packets into a single packet minimizing the number of packets required
for transmission.
lDoes NOT affect medium and large packets.
Note: Any applicalxon usxng a Linux—compalxble language can be housed in ZumIQ.

1.2.4. Packet Compression
lWhen the compressionEnabled (on page 203) setting is enabled, the outgoing packets are
analyzed and, if the data packet can be compressed, sent compressed to transmit fewer
bits over the air.
1.3. ZumIQ Application Environment
ZumLink provides the ZumIQ Application Environment that allows for the development and
deployment of Linux-based applications onto the radio. The application has access to the same
computing resources as the radio but is in a segregated section of the Z9-PC / Z9-PC-SR001.
Note: Any application using a Linux-compatible language can be housed in ZumIQ.
