Grove XBee Carrier is a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) base board designed for Bee series and groves. It is primarily suitable for standalone Bee Nodes like RFBeeWifi Bee which have ATMega328 on-board.

More details

Grove The on-board FT232RL can be used like any other 3.3V USB to UART interface when not connected to any Bee Modules. This is useful for programming a 3.3V MCU through Serial Port.

XBee Carrier is a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) base board designed for Bee series and groves. It is primarily suitable for standalone Bee Nodes like RFBeeWifi Bee which have ATMega328 on-board. It is compatible with RFBee, Wifi Bee, XBee and Bluetooth Bee. Besides a Bee receptacle, there are also two Grove connectors. The board can be powered by a lithium battery or through USB cable. You can use a Wireless charger, Solar Panel or the USB cable to charge the battery. The FT232RL chip on-board helps in downloading the program to Bee Module directly.

Bees which do not have ATMega328 like Bluetooth Bee can only be configured by using on-board FT232RL (USB to UART). Theses Bees are not suitable for standalone applications.

Features:

  • Bees compatible receptacle
  • Two grove connector - one for I2C and other for D6,D5
  • Two grove place holders
  • On-Board Charge Controller CN3063
  • On-Board 3.3V LDO Lownoise Micropower Regulator - RT9167A_33PB
  • On-board FT232RL UBS-UART IC
  • LEDs for PWR, charge indication and UART transmission.
  • Power switch
  • Reset button
  • 2.0mm pitch JST connector for Battery and Charger.
 

Application Ideas:

 
  • Wireless Sensor Network with Standalone Bee Node like Wifi Bee.
  • As a configuration aid for Bees using FT232RL.
  • Charger for Lithium Ion Cells using on-board charge controller.
  • As a FT232RL based 3.3v USB-UART.
