XBee with ARM7 (LPC2378)

Started by mayerhofer_g April 23, 2007
Hello!
I am working the first time with XBee and ARM7. I want to run an XBee
Moduel via ARM7(RS232) so that I am able to make a peer to peer
conection to another XBee module. Maybe someone of you know references
where I can find example codes for such an project.

Thanks,

Gerald

Gerald,

I have done just this. Its not very complicated. In their most basic
mode the Xbee modules can be used as a "wire replacement". Once
you've got stuff working with wires you can simply plug in the xbee
modules on either end and go. Some things to look out for:

Make sure the Xbee modules are on the same channel.
Make sure the data rate isn't too high.
Beware of higher baud rates on the Xbee modules. Due to what I
believe was a baud rate mismatch error I was unable to use the xbee
modules at 115K.

Unfortunately I cannot share my code with you. My code was based on
the API interface of the Xbee module and therefore is probably more
complicated than your looking for. There should be several demo
programs out there that show you how to use the serial port.
