I am working on Xbee in API mode and i am writing a small program in C to receive API frames and process them, but to start with this, i simply wanted to check that how does these frames look like and is API communication is really happening or not.
I have Radio A and Radio B
Radio A - Transmitter
64 bit address - 0013A20040BB1716
Radio B - Receiver
64 bit address - 013A20040BCDE18
I added them both via Xbee USB shield to KDE and started minicom for both. They both are replying to the AT command pretty well. I set APi mode by using
ATAP = 1 or ATAP = 2
and then ATWR and ATCN and checked API mode again by issuing ATAP and get 1 or 2 as reply, that means i am in API mode now.
I used this link
to frame API frames to be send from Radio A to Radio B, and this is the frame which i got
7E 00 10 10 01 00 13 A2 00 40 BC DE 18 00 00 00 00 AE DA BF
when i send it from Radio A to Radio B, i didn’t get anything on Radio B serial on minicom. What am i missing? I had already attached antenna. I also considered this link
