Introducing the Official Digi XBee Library

Digi International
June 25, 2015
The mbed platform is a popular tool for engineers developing new Internet of Things devices. It is both a platform and operating system for internet-connected devices based on 32-bit ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers. 

ARM mbed provides rapid development, ease of use, efficiency, security features, and support for a wide range of add-on components including Digis wireless solutions. Our team of Digi XBee® experts has created a special library to easily connect mbed projects using XBee radios.mbed_logo The library supports Digi XBee 802.15.4 and Digi XBee Zigbee modules so developers are able to create simple point-to-point projects or complex mesh networks for their devices. On the mbed website you can find detailed instructions on how to implement the library into your mbed device. We have also included ready-to-use XBee examples so you can get started quickly.
In addition to the mbed library we have additional official software libraries for Digi XBee development: There are also a slew of third party libraries created by the Digi XBee community: Be sure to also see our Examples & Guides pages.

For more information on mbed, you can visit their site. Have any questions about the XBee library itself? Just shoot us a message at @XBeeWireless or comment below.
