Indoor range 60 meters (200 ft); line-of-sight range up to 1.2km (4000 ft) 2.4-2.5 GHz frequency band; RF data rate up to 250 Kbps Uses UART or SPI communication (configured for SPI by default) ZigBee interoperability Low power consumption 3.3V power supply
XBee click carries the XBee- and ZigBee-compliant XB24CZ7PIS-004 module with PCB antenna. The module provides wireless connectivity to end-point devices in ZigBee mesh networks. ZigBee is a low-power networking solution for applications that don't require high data rates, which can be anything from smart homes and building automation to industrial control.
The module has a wireless range of up to 60 meters indoors, or up to 1200 meters in outdoor line-of-sight applications. The RF data rate is up to 250,000 Kbps. The board can communicate with your target MCU either through the mikroBUS UART interface (TX, RX, RTS, CTS), or SPI (MISO, MOSI, SCK, CS). Additional functionality is provided by Reset and ATTN-DTR pins. To simplify deployment, the click board features a pushbutton and an associated LED. These allow you to issue simple configuration commands with subsequent button presses, e.g. joining or leaving networks, self-identification, restoring default values, etc. See the XBee Modules User Guide's Commissioning Pushbutton and Associate LED section for details of this operation.
A solder jumper is used to set the interrupt feature depending on whether you're using SPI or UART data transmission. It is set to ATT by default, for SPI. Resolder the zero-Ohm resistor to the DTR position if you're using UART.
This board is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, the Flip & Click Arduino/Python-compatible board, the Quail board, these mikromedia shields, the Microchip Curiosity board, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581) or Arduino Mega click shield (MIKROE-1900)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512) or Pi 2 click shield (MIKROE-1879)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596) or mikroBUS Cape (MIKROE-1857)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
- Freescale Freedom — FRDM-KL46Z click shield (MIKROE-1795) or FRDM-K64F click shield (MIKROE-1794)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
