5 Getting Started with Multiprotocol Applications

This section describes steps to test and develop the precompiled BLE and Zigbee coexistence application examples.

The Multiprotocol applications demonstrate the capability of the PIC32CXBZ2 device. The device supports both BLE and ZigBee technologies in the 2.4 GHz frequency range. The software stacks handle both technologies as specified in the respective specifications. Mainly, the software stack is capable to handle both technologies together in a coexistence mode. This is recommended for users who are new to the Microchip BLE stack and other toolchains like MPLAB Code Configurator.

These multiprotocol applications demonstrate the Provisioning through BLE for Zigbee commissioning parameters, control and monitoring the Zigbee devices from mobile apps, etc.
