Hey, I am having trouble getting spi working to communicate with the xbee devcice using raspberry pi. I am using python with the spidev library to try and communicate with the xbee. I configured the xbee using XCTU in API 1 mode and enabled the relevant SPI pins. The devices work using uart, but not with spi.
Basically, I am trying to send a frame to read the hardware version from the xbee device(7E 00 04 08 01 48 56 58). All I get as a response is (FF FF FF....).
The only time I actually get a frame as a response is after disconnecting and connecting the xbee, which case I get (7E 00 02 8A 00 75), which is a frame for modem status saying modem status is hardware reset. This tells me that spi is working, but I am not sure why I don't get a response when I send frame to get hardware version.
Would really appreciate some help, if anyone has any experience with getting spi working with an xbee device.
