Hello guys, I'm working with SEP 2.0 (Smart Energy Profile). To acomplish that I need ZigBee comuunication. I want to buy some boards where I can test this software. I have an AVR Raven kit...is it enough to implement the Bit Cloud Profile Suite?

No, it is not. Raven support was discontinued even for regular SDKs and PS never worked on this platform.

Any board based on Atmega128RFA1 will work. I don't usually shop for this kind of stuff, so I don't know which kit is more available and cheap.

No, SEP2.0 is based on ZigBee IP, which is completely different from ZigBee PRO.

So, nobody can reccommend me a board or evaluation kit?!

I saw "ATmega128RFA1 Evaluation Kit" but it seems that is for use with STK600...

It can be used standalone with some soldering involved.

Your standard options are: Dresden Electronik RCB128RFA1 or STK600-atmega128rfa1

Then you can probably find some cheaper boards, possibly with some issues (like SparkFun one, which has design issue).

Alexru, it seems that ATAVR128RFA1 Evaluation Kit has standard connectors, including JTAG in a separate connector, that seems great. The problem is the power supply...do you think that making a special connector is possible to feed the board with AVR Dragon? Atmel dont says too much on this board (because they want to sell too the STK 600).

Someone done this before?

Cheers

There is no standard JTAG connector, all connectors on the board are just all pins routed out. You can connect any programing tools and power supplies.

There is a topic here about standalone operation of this board.
