Ecological agriculture is increasingly relying on mobile technologies to monitor the growth of plants, however, the traditional management efficiency is low and waste resources. So, a USB coordinator based on ZigBee-Stack is designed. ZigBee is a low rate, low power consumption wireless communication technology, which can be commonly used in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). WSN is composed of hundreds sensor nodes, all of the information from these nodes will be sent to the coordinator, so the coordinator undertakes the task to collect and process data information, and also as the interface of the network with users. The design of the coordinator is based on CC2530 chip, and RFX2401C chip is superposed on it. A software was compiled to test the data transmission distance. The results show that the distance was increased by 40-60 meters and RFX2401C chip uses only two pins of CC2530 chip. So the improved coordinator is more cost-savings and efficient.
