This new version V0.6 of the XBee shield has dual XBee sockets and RTC support. The device supports XBee, XRF, Blue Bee, RFbee, XV, XBT, X232, etc. This shield has extra features employed to provide improvements over the existing XBee shield designs and offers more to the RF beginner. The spare space on the board has additional tracks that can, if desired, be used for the easy addition of a range of basic devices to complete a fully functioning wireless sensor.

  • Designed by users for users
  • Supports 3.3v and 5v microcontrollers
  • Secondary XBee socket may be added, allowing gateway type operation
  • Support for DS1307 Real Time Clock and battery backup
  • Support for DS18B20 temperature sensor, LED, LDR, Buzzer etc.
  • Instant start, no 10 second wait at power up that many boards suffer
  • No need to remove the board when doing a download
  • Sleep function that completely powers off the XBee and concurrently isolates RX/TX
  • Takes power from the left hand connector rather than the AVR programming header
  • Just 3 pins in use, RX/TX and pin 8 to wake/sleep
  • XBee Power On/Sleep status indicator LED
  • RSSI or Assoc. indicator LED (ASSOC is default)
  • Relocation of the XBee providing better reception for longer range and easier access
  • Easy access pads for testing connections 'off shield' e.g. on a breadboard
  • Breaks out VCC,GND,DIN and DOUT to 4x 2.54mm spaced pads
  • Every I/O pin has a secondary solder pad to allow for easy modification and construction of projects
