Hello, has anyone run the kinetis W SoC's(kw40z,kw20z) with 6lowpan stack as a network processor talking SPI/UART to separate application mcu(such as i.MX or LS1021A) which is running Linux? I want to run the kw20z as edge router and bridge the WSN traffic into linux ethernet(which has a COAP service running). What protocol does the 6lowpan stack on 802.15.4 SoC establish/support over SPI or UART and could it support a SLIP protocol to accomplish that bridging between the two chips, or is the right approach to just install COAP server on the 802.15.4 SoC which would have IP/socket because of the 6lowpan stack and then do my own protocol over SPI to talk with app mcu as needed?
