8 Getting Started with IEEE 802.15.4 MAC Applications

The MAC Applications are built on top of IEEE 802.15.4 MAC and IEEE 802.15.4 Physical Layer for PIC32CX-BZ2 platform devices. The application demonstrates the usage of Standalone 802.15.4-MAC Component to form a 4-node star configuration, which comprises of a Coordinator (FFD) and 4 End Devices (RFDs). The End Devices pull data from the Coordinator through polling, while also transmitting data back to the Coordinator.

This application serves as an example of the bi-directional capabilities of MAC. Refer to the following link for push pull mac application project generation and demonstration.
