The Digi XBee 802.15.4 1mW modules (XB24-AWI-001) is a wireless transceiver, 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.
Because the XBee modules have 2 mm pin spacing, we recommend one of our adapter boards for each module. Our adapter boards provide several advantages to the XBee modules such breadboard-friendly standard 0.1 inch pin spacing, mounting holes, and easy-to-solder connections. Even if you are communicating point-to-point without a PC, we still recommend that you always have at least one XBee USB Adapter Board so you can easily configure and test each XBee module prior to putting it in a point-to-point application.
The alternate style of XBee 1mW Chip Antenna (XB24-ACI-001) is also available.
Note : XBee 802.15.4 and ZigBee modules are not compatible.
