I'm about ready to switch out my very simple FR components (was using Linx rxm-418-ls-r) as my needs have gone to more sophisticated communications - and they need to be bi-directional now.
I've taken the leap and purchased two ATZB-X0-256-3-0-C, two ATZB-X-233-XPRO and a ATSAM4L-XSTK.
here is what I hope to accomplish.
Bidirectional communications to several of the nodes (relatively small amounts of information (couple hundred bytes every hour)
One of the nodes will be wearable - the others stationary.
For the most part, the main logic will run in a separate xmega256a3u processor that needs to communicate (hoping to use some simple communications spi/I2c/uart). The remote nodes may do some sensor data collection and transmission. These nodes can possibly use the on-board xmega
it seems the bitcloud communications suite is the easiest and most robust.
I have read there is some simple "AT" command set that is available - but I have not been able to locate it.
Question - Are my assumptions correct (the board and the bitcloud)?
Question - what is the best way to get started when you know very little - and would rather spend my time on building the rest of my app than get an in-depth knowledge of 802-15-4 and zigbee?
