Re: Part IV: Fundamentals of Digital Debugging

Q:  To specify more I know a simple FTDI cable would download whatever data is passed between xbees as it comes off the serial output of the module. The general degugging related question is what kind of software tools are out there to anaylse and clean up the data i see.

 

A:  Got it.  I used XBee modules extensively last year and used the Saleae LOGIC logic analyzer to help me sort out the data.  I used mainly the API mode for the XBee modules.  I have a book coming out in the spring, "The Hands-On XBee Lab Manual," from Newnes-Elsevier that goes through the breakdown of packets and shows how to interpret them.  I don't know of any software that does that, but it could be a Visaul BASIC project for someone.  Contact me by email if you need more help jontitus at comcast dot net.
