XBee 802.15.4 XB24-API-001 S1 PCB Trace modules are the easiest-to-use, most reliable and cost-effective RF devices we’ve experienced. The 802.15.4 XBee modules provide two friendly modes of communication – a simple serial method of transmit/receive or a framed mode providing advanced features. XBees are ready to use out of the package, or they can be configured through the X-CTU utility or from your microcontroller. These modules can communicate point to point, from one point to a PC, or in a mesh network.
The PCB antenna version provides a lower profile footprint for applications with limited space while the wire antenna version allows for more flexibility in adjusting for optimal range at the same output power. XBee 802.15.4 modules are cross-compatible with other 802.15.4 XBee modules, regardless of antenna type or power rating.
