xbee attached to connectcore 6ul

Hi everyone,

Im trying to create a zigbee network with an xbee 3.0 attached to a connectcore 6ul pro with yocto. how can i control the xbee (configure the parameters and send packages)?


Have you looked at the documentation and sample applications at https://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=5619&type=documentation

Yes, but I dont find any information about how to control the xbee. I have tried to connect the USB and find the device with XCTU but doesnt work.

I would not expect XCTU to locate the radio via the CC6UL. I would expect it to find it if you mounted it on a Development board for the XBee and connected that to the PC.

As for the other, you might need to send an email to tech.support@digi.com for someone to provide you the link to the data you are looking for.

Ok so I need a development board for the xbee? I was hoping to be able to do it from the CC6UL…
Thank you

Hi Pablovi96,

You do not need an XBee dev board.

The socket on the 6UL Pro is UART 2.


Your Yocto build will need a library to talk to the module.


Personally, I prefer python but you can use whatever you prefer.

Then you just use the existing info in the library help which you can find on Github.


There is a GUI for setting the XBee, XCTU, but it does not come in a Linux ARM build.
