Q1: When will the Airbee stack be available for this board?
A1: Airbee is currently porting their F1611 stack to this board. Stay tuned!

Q2: My DZ1612 has a 6 MHz oscillator on XT2. Why doesn't my DRFG4618 have a similar oscillator?
A2: A nice feature of the F4xx family is the FLL, which can generate stable yet easily adjustable high-frequency SMCLK and MCLKs. As a result, your final system design can be simpler, smaller and cheaper if you use the FLL instead of a crystal. Our boards and software are intended to demonstrate this!
