This is the Xbee Explorer Dongle unit for the XBee line.
The is a breakout board for the popular XBee modules. Board includes easy-to-sew tabs and all the necessary power regulation to run on the LilyPad system.
This board mates directly with the Arduino USB board and allows the Arduino to wirelessly communicate over a modified ZigBee protocol using the popular XBee module from MaxStream.
If you're going to use a RF module that needs an SMA antenna, we've got you covered! Here's a 152mm swivel/tilt whip with RP-SMA connector!
The XBee Explorer Regulated takes care of the 3.3V regulation, signal conditioning, and basic activity indicators (Power, RSSI and DIN/DOUT activity LEDs). This makes it SO much easier to start playing with XBee!
This adapter board is designed to make adding wireless point-to-point or mesh networking easy. Adafruit looked at all the XBee adapter boards available and decided to design something better.
The low-power XBee 802.15.4 and extended-range XBee-PRO 802.15.4 use the IEEE 802.15.4 networking protocol for fast point-to-multipoint or peer-to-peer networking.
