HOW TO: Configure the DD parameter (Device Type Identifier) of a Digi XBee or XBee-PRO

The XBee / XBee-PRO DD parameter is the Device Type Identifier field, which is a proprietary AT parameter used on Digi XBee modules.

DD is a 4-byte hex string, consisting of an upper and lower word, which when put together result in a meaningful designation such as "RS-232 Adapter" or "X8 Gateway".

A list of the various DD values which can be set can be found here.

The DD parameter would normally be configured by connecting directly to the XBee mounted on an XBIB dev board and accessing the module with XCTU, or over-the-air from another XBee module in API mode, or an RF Gateway of the same RF network type.
