It translates the 5V signals to 3.3V so that you can connect a 5V (down to 3.3V) system to any XBee module. The XBee Explorer Regulated takes care of the 3.3V regulation, signal conditioning, and basic activity indicators (Power, RSSI and DIN/DOUT activity LEDs) for the XBee module. This unit works with all XBee modules including 1 and 2.5 Series, standard and Pro versions. Plug an XBee into this breakout and you will have access to the programming and serial pins on the XBee unit. You will be able to power the XBee with 5V.
The board was conveniently designed to mate directly with Arduino Pro boards and with the FTDI Basic boards for wireless bootloading and USB based configuration.
You get the board only. XBee modules sold below.
Note: To use this card along with the XBee PRO version, you should use pin header male 90 °.
