This application note describes the Z-Tool application, and how this tool can be used during development and debugging of ZigBee applications. Z-Tool replaces Z-Trace, and for users already familiar with the latter tool most of this document also applies to Z-Trace. The difference between Z-Tool and Z-Trace is that Z-Tool also has support for scripting.
Z-Tool can be used to communicate with a Z-Stack™ target device and provides debug information via the serial port interface on the target. From Z-Tool different kinds of commands can be issued to the target, and responses to the commands from the target can be viewed. The different types of commands are System commands, MAC interface, NWK interface, ZDO interface and User Test commands. The target can be reset from Z-Tool, and memory commands allow the tester to read and write memory locations on the target RAM and Non-Volatile memory. Z-Tool can also subscribe to callbacks at the target and write out the callback information when the callback event happens.
