Q: FAQ: Acquiring IEEE address range (802.15.4 MAC, Z-stack, ZigBee, CC2420, CC2430, CC2431, CC2530, CC2531)
The IEEE 64 bit address is known at IEEE as the EUI-64(tm) which is a concatenation of the 24-bit OUI (Company ID) value assigned by the IEEE Registration Authority and a 40-bit extension identifier assigned by the organization with that OUI assignment.A one time fee of $1,650.00(US) is required. The addresses used for 802.15.4 has the same format and ranges as Ethernet MAC addresses.See this link: http://standards.ieee.org/regauth/oui/forms/

If it's a prototype then just choose a random one. Don't even waste time thinking about it.
> IAB costs $550 for 2^12 addresses
This is 2^12 for 48bit addresses, for 64bit addresses as are used in 15.4., there are (64-48)bits more.

I understand, but I figured since the type of devices I was talking about will never hit the consumer market and are solely intended for testing / prototyping, TI might have a set or small range of numbers available for testing as a service to developers. Too bad.
Thanx for your reply!

TI does provide development-kits/EVMs with pre-programmed IEEE addresses; however, samples are not provided with an IEEE address as the IEEE organization wants the end-user organizations to be registered with the used IEEE addresses (hence, each devices must have its own unique IEEE address).
The IEEE organization registers Organizationally Unique Identifiers (OUI) world-wide. A subset of these addresses is called Individual Address Block (IAB).If I remember correctly the latest numbers are:
OUI costs$1650 for 2^40 addresses
IAB costs $550 for 2^12 addresses
For the correct details and further information you should check with the IEEE org: http://standards.ieee.org/regauth/index.html
Hope this helps!
