As a member of the XBee family of RF products, the module is easy-to-use, shares a common footprint, and leverages Digis Drop-in Networking solutions including gateways and adapters. No configuration is necessary for out-of-the-box RF communications. The modules default configuration supports a wide range of data system applications. Advanced configurations can be implemented using simple serial AT commands.
XBee-PRO modules operate within the ISM 900 MHz frequency band. The modules are optimized for use in US and Canada.
Digi Part #: XBP09-DPUIT-156
The Multiprotocol Radio Shield is an interconnection shield for Arduino, and was designed to connect two communication modules at the same time. This that means a lot of possibilities and applications can be made using the cooking-hacks modules.
The Multiprotocol Radio Shield includes the SPI bus connections that allows the use of the RS-485 and CAN Bus modules, but also is compatible with the rest of the cooking-hacks modules as RFID, XBee and Bluetooth.
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.
