netdev2 - some hints about the relationships between the 6lowpan protocol

Hello everyone, that sounds not good....only one device in master und one not yet merged!?

Best regards, Bernhard

Hi Bernhard, that’s not what I said: cc11xx is the only radio in master. Since netdev2 was introduced around the time we introduced Ethernet, there are also several Ethernet devices (netdev2_tap, enc28j60, encx24j600) that support the netdev2 interface. Our IEEE 802.15.4 radios work with the predecessor of netdev2 that is very similar, but bound to the GNRC stack: gnrc_netdev. PR 4646 and its dependencies introduce a glue code layer for netdev2 and GNRC and allows thus for easy porting of gnrc_netdev devices to netdev2 (when it is merged). PR 4646 provides the port for the at86rf2xx radio as an example.

Hope this was helpful enough. If you have further questions just ask :slight_smile:

Best regards, Martine
