XBee to USB Interface
This board is an interface between an XBee module and an FT231XS USB UART. Originally designed for the ESU-BRIDGE ProtoThrottle Receiver, this board can be used to add XBee functionality to any Raspberry Pi or PC with a USB port. Note: this board comes with a USB Type A connector. A standard micro USB cable can be used when connecting it to a Raspberry Pi, but a Type A to Type A cable is required when connecting the board to a standard USB port.
- Supports any standard through-hole XBee Series 1 or XBee3 module
- Four general-purpose LEDs (3 blue, 1 red) driven by the XBee I/O lines
- On-board 3.3V regulator
The complete gEDA design files are available on GitHub.
The FT231XS UART is natively supported under Linux and MacOS. Windows drivers can be found here.
