Q1: Have you characterized the RF performance of this board?
A1: Yes! A report prepared by Cincinnati Technologies, Ltd., available above in the Downloads section, gives detailed RF performance metrics.

Q2: What portions of the ZigBee stack are implemented by the Airbee Wireless ZNS Lite stack?
A2: See the Airbee Feature Matrix in the Downloads section above for details.

Q3: I am curious about the RAM requirement per additional node for the licensed ZNS Lite. Does it grow in a per-node fashion or is it fixed at a certain amount of RAM for X nodes?
A3: The network topology is important in defining the RAM requirement. The licensed Airbee-ZNS Lite stack has a maximum of seven entries in the neighbor table - one for the parent and the other 6 for the children. As long as the above constraint is satisfied during network formation before data transmission, there is no additional RAM requirement for nodes joining the network.

Q4: Can I specify my own MAC addresses with the Airbee stack?
A4: Yes. Please use the V_ABZB_NWK_Init API function to specify MAC addresses. The Programmer's Reference Manual has more information on the above API.

Q5: What SMA connector should I use if I want to plug in an off-the-shelf antenna?
A5: To work with commercially available antennae, make sure you get a reverse polarity jack. A typical Digikey part number is CONREVSMA001.
