Demo Kit Simplifies ZigBee Applications

In addition, the kit includes protocol stack hardware that is preloaded into the MCUs, demonstration software (preloaded), and even the batteries. That is essentially everything an engineer needs to establish a simple point-to-point network for first-hand ZigBee experience. The kit includes an application note providing detailed "how to" and insight into the ZigBee software stack operation.
