Hi Peter,

   Thanks for your answer and suggestion.

   Regarding the Atmel sam21 board, I did some research about this board.
Are the following items are the correct choice for this board?



  Please help me to confirm this if you have time.

   BTW, our goal is to test ccn-lite on RIOT, so as long as the transceiver
works, ccn-lite stack should work, am I right?
