XBee shield will make interfacing multiple Bee-style (XBee, GPS Bee, Bluetooth Bee and etc) easier than ever before. it has large proto area, customizable software, serial, port for easier prototyping.
- Arduino main board compatible
- 3 indicator LED（ON/Sleep, RSSI, ASSOC）for XBee
- Reset button for XBee and base board
- Provide maximal 500mA under 3.3V
- Full break out for XBee
- Full break out for the base board
Note: Two jumpers are required to connect Bee_TX, Bee_RX with Digital by using Bee as shown below:
Bee_TX, Bee_RX can be connected to PD0~PD7(PD2~PD7 is used as soft serial and PD0,PD1 is used as hardware serial).
Using Soft Serial to communicate with Xbee
- Download the SoftwareSerial library,
- Put it in Arduino IDE Libraries folder (arduino/libraries);
