» 802 09b: Expansion board RX

This example shows how to receive packets through the Expansion board (SOCKET1).

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote PRO
1 x Battery
1 x MiniUSB wire
1 x XBee-802.15.4 module
1 x Expansion Radio Board

Notes

* This example belongs to a two-code example. This is the receiving part.
* Both XBee modules must be configured with the same network parameters (PANID, channel, encryption mode)
