XBee Module Breakout Board with 3.3V Level Shifter and Signal LEDs The XBee Explorer Regulated takes care of the 3.3V regulation, signal conditioning, and basic activity indicators (Power, RSSI and DIN/DOUT activity LEDs). 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 board was designed to mate directly with Arduino Pro boards and with the FTDI Basic USB-to-serial breakout board for wireless bootloading and USB-based configuration.
This unit works with most XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series 2.5, standard and Pro versions (it will not work with S3B versions). Plug an XBee into this breakout and you will have direct access to the serial and programming pins on the XBee unit and will be able to power the XBee with 5V.
This board comes fully populated with 3.3V regulator (16V max input), XBee socket, four status LEDs, a MOSFET level shifter to allow 5V systems to communicate safely with the 3.3V XBees. This board does not include an XBee module. View list of XBee modules.
