802.15.4 Shield for the Arduino Board.
It includes Digi XBee™ 802.15.4 OEM RF Module, up to 100m distance transmission. With this module it can be built low-power wireless communication applications, suchs as sensor networks.
Board comes fully assembled and tested (without Arduino board).
Disclaimer: XBee 802.15.4 and ZB modules are NOT compatibles

Note: If you are searching for Wireless Sensor Networks devices (motes) you may be interested in our ready to market sensor platform: Waspmote. You can discover the differences between both platforms in the document: Waspmote vs SquidBee.
The Arduino XBee shield allows your Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. It was developed in collaboration with Arduino. This documentation describes the use of the shield with the XBee module.
It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.
The current tutorial explains how to take the most of the Galileo board by using on it the Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules designed by Cooking Hacks
Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, the software of Galileo also has support for the Arduino shield ecosystem.
The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.
It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
