Communication by mcu with xbee ZB module


How do you start communicating with the xbee ZB module via microcontroller (uart)? I mean what is the data to be sent to the module before starting to send the data to be transmitted?

Nope, just think of the radio as nothing more than a cable. Simply send your data as you would if you had physically ran a cable between the devices.

Thanks a lot! But then what is transparent and API serial interface for? Are those interfaces just to configure the module as either co-ordinator, router or end device and for other parameters like baud rate etc? Also if my end device would be connected to mcu in the final design, then do i have to configure it via usb as end device (i mean before using it in my design)?
