I had no idea I'd been selected for this until I got home from vacation and found an unexpected package. Thanks. I'll get onto the review as soon as I can.
Can someone tell me the real, tested, max. range for 2.9-3v supply?

Ah, I should have made myself clearer. The zigbee nodes would be for gathering and reporting small amounts of data / information. Then the Pi would be a controller and provide a gateway so that data can be viewed remotely. I'm thinking about home automation (to improve efficiency,) and also monitoring the effectivness of solar heating for the garage.
There is a section on the wiki http://www.anaren.com/air-wiki-zigbee/Main_Page covering the module interface and not using the supplied drivers, so with some effort I don't see why they can't run on any processor with enough resources.
I'd be tempted to get it running on an AVR, or maybe even a raspberry PI. I'd like to make a zigbee network with the PI as a controller for gollecting the data and providing web access.
Can these modules be used with other MCUs as well except MSP430 or Stellaris as I see it has SPI/I2C test points.
This is great!
