  1. guys... I'm going to use the digimesh modules from digi.
    I'm working with Microchip C30 compiler.

    The xbee API protocol is not hard to implement, just very long due to
    the number of functions.

    After a quick search on the web I found a lot of well written C++
    libraries, very handy to use.
    I cannot find anything in "plain" C, though.

    Do you know something about?
    Otherwise I will write my own....

    Thanks
    Marco

    A deeper look into the code shows that almost all functions have their
    prefix, related to the parent class.
    Probably it's enough to remove the classes and modify the calls... I'll
    give it a try.

    Thanks
    Marco

    Anyway it's quite strange there is no code in C. Xbee is widely used
    nowadays.

  4. I think the PIC32 now has a C++ compiler. If you're willing to upgrade
    to a 32-bit processor that might be a possibility. Just about every
    new application that would have been 8-bit or 16-bit and is not
    utterly trivial will probably go to some flavor of 32-bit core (eg.
    ARM Cortex M0) in the next 5 years. Hopefully the MIPS PIC32 will end
    up with a decent market share, but ARM PLC is a juggernaut at the
    moment.. from low end to the new V8 multi-core server chips.

    Of course, code that heavily uses C++ features may be unsuited for an
    limited embedded environment, in general, but in this specific case it
    could be useful.


    Best regards,

    I'm using the OpenPicus FLYPORT
    (http://store.openpicus.com/openpicus/prodotti.aspx?cprod=015356). I
    cannot change the hardware of course. It has onboard a PIC24.

    The code I'm working on is here:

    This link is for the ethernet module. Do you have one for 802.15.4? Just curious what chip they are using. We are using PIC32MX and MRF24J40.

    The OpenPicus modules come in two versions: Ethernet and WiFi.
    Then you can add your 802.15.4 transceiver on your own carrier board.
