The IEEE 802.15.4 specification limits packet sizes to 127 bytes.BTW ... All docs, software, scripts, examples, projects, user Q/A can be found under Support /Synapse SNAP forum
Yeah but I gotta register to look at that...
Looks like they cost from $25 to $40 a piece.Looks comparable in price but a with a 3 mile range.....
The same way you registered on this forum ... use any username you want ... no purchase necessary.
Especially if they do a side by side comparison between XBees.
What I'm disappointed is at times, the sales guy always ask questions like how much is your consumption per year and how big is your company, etc. No doubt, the Synapse products are awesome products, I just wish that they have a wider distribution network like the XBee. Embarrassed
I'm designing a wireless sensor network that will need to operate in a mesh layout. I came across the Synapse RF engines a few weeks ago and they look like they're a really easy way to throw a bunch of nodes out and have them create a mesh automatically. I'll need an arduino at each location anyway, so maybe it's overkill and I could go with the XBees instead. Are the Xbee units easy to set up in a mesh for a noob like me, or should I go with the Synapse ones since they also have the Portal software and the USB snap stick which gives me a pretty good headstart?
Is this like the XBee?
