I have seen that many 802.15.4 radios have non-standard data rates. I would guess that the 250k rate will work between all radios that claim to be 802.15.4 because they are following the standard. Now, if I were to use a non-standard data rate, I would expect all chips from a specific manufacturer to (hopefully) work with each other at any of the available data rates (i.e. a bunch of atmel radios at 2Mbps). Now, I am trying to understand if radios from different manufacturers using non-standard bit rates would work together. My guess is no, because the chipping sequence between radios is not standardized (802.15.4 only defines 250k as I understand it), and is likely proprietary (I've received communications from Atmel indicating this is the case). Any info on this is appreciated.
