Coordinator received frames forwarding to beaglebone black

Hi, I have bought the zigbee mesh kit. I am working on a project where I need to use the beaglebone-black to process temperture readings. Currently I am using the digipot to see that the coordinator is in fact receiving messages with the values of 2 nodes.
I can see that in the XCTU my coordinator is in fact receiving the frames with the values. have tried to connect pin 3 tx and pin 4 rx to the uart4 rx and tx but don’t seem to see the frames show up. I must be doing something incorrect. Is there a way to forward the frames that are received by the coordinator to the beaglebone-black?

If you are using the XBIB-CU-TH, MMT or SMT versions of the board, you can turn off the UART dip switches which will disconnect the PC from the UART of the radio. You can then use the test pins/ports to connect the Tx and Rx lines to your voltage compatible (3V CMOS) connection to these test points. This would then allow your 3VCMOS processor the ability to receive the data instead of the PC and XCTU without moving the radio.

Hi mvut,

Thanks for your reply. I am using the SMT version of the boards that come with the zigbee mesh kit. They are development boards. I assume that the dip switches are on the development board. Could you point me to documentation or let me know where they might be? Also should I keep coordinator in API mode?

Attached is a picture of the kit that I have

These boards are not conducive to connecting to an external processor. What I would suggest is obtaining an XBIB-CU-TH board. Then you can connect one of the two Through hole modules to the PC and view the data and then set its switch to allow the processor to talk to it.

Thanks for the help. I have ordered one of the XBIB-CU-TH boards and will now proceed to read the userguide. I may come back with more questions later.

I just realized after ordering the XBIB-CU-TH that my zigbee devices are SMT…this is not going to work.

ok…I just called digikey and caught the order before it left. I am having them send me XBIB-C-SMT…this will have to do. I have already wired up the small board (see picture) and so this will not be too much of a stretch.

If you are going to use the SMT version of the module, then that is the correct part number. Note that when I suggest the other board, I did mention that it was for the Through Hole version of the module and if you were going to use the SMT, to use the SMT version of the board.
