Easy Gateway for ZIGBEE to IEC 61850

The Beck IPC Development Kit DK61 seems to be one of the favorite platforms for building gateways between several protocols and IEC 61850. A gateway between ZIGBEE and IEC 61850 has been developed by a master student in Poland.

Dominik Nowak (AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland) has developed a ZigBee-to-IEC61850 bridge. It is designed to meet IEC61850 standard requirements and to connect ZigBee network to a substation automation system. The architecture is shown in the following excerpt:
