ZigBee Application Kit
The ZigBee/802.15.4 Application Kit combines MaxStream's XBee RF modem with the popular RCM3720 RabbitCore module along with an easy-to-use interface to help customers build a practical ZigBee wireless control network. ZigBee paired with the RCM3720 provides a low-cost, robust wireless infrastructure that allows users to monitor and control remote devices within a wireless meshed network.

The kit contains three MaxStream® ZigBee modules for full application reference. One ZigBee module is connected to an Ethernet enabled RCM3720 RabbitCore Module. The RCM3720 runs at 22.1 MHz, and provides 10Base-T Ethernet. 512K Flash, 256K SRAM, 1MB Serial Flash as on-board memory, and 33 GPIO lines. The other two ZigBee modules are standalone node devices.
