Does a zigbee series 2 ( xbee ) module have a inbuilt microcontroller? If yes, is it possible to reprogram that microcontroller? If not, then is it possible to use an external microcontroller.


The XBee devices do have built-in microcontrollers.

However, Digi does not make a SDK, or the resources required to compile your own firmware image available for the Series-2 XBees.

You could probably theoretically reverse-engineer the modules, and write your own firmware for them. However, judging from the fact that you're asking this question, I think that's a bit over your head at the moment.
