The XBEE PRIMER Shield is an extension to the Raisonance EVOPRIMER and PRIMER2 development platforms, adding wireless capability. Based on the popular XBEE module footprint, a range of wireless protocols and transmission power is available. This demonstration program shows a functioning prototype of some of the basic wireless communication features of the XBEE PRIMER Shield product.
The XBEE PRIMER Shield adds wireless capability to your Raisonance EVOPRIMER and PRIMER2 development platforms. Based on the popular XBEE wireless modules by Digi, a wide range of wireless communication options are available.
Now it is easy to add IEEE 802.15.4, 802.11, ZIGBEE, standard or Pro, and other wireless interfaces to Raisonance’s development platform. XBEE PRIMER Shield is compact and fits inside the EVOPRIMER and PRIMER2 housing. For modules which carry an external antenna, only the antenna is visible on the outside. An on-board regulator provides power to the wireless module, and the power can be switched on and off under software control.
XBEE PRIMER Shields with IEEE 802.15.4 and ZIGBEE, with either chip of external antenna can be ordered on line. If you want to populate the XBEE PRIMER Shield yourself, a BareBoneBoard is available as well.
XBEE PRIMER Shields communicate with the host system through a standard serial connection. Example code is available for download.
