Having fun with XBee module? Now Cytron Technologies offer higher power (longer communication range) XBee, the XBee Pro. It has similar specification with XBee module, except the transmit power is higher which result in greater wireless communication range, up to 750meters (LOS). The communication protocol, pin layout and arrangement is fully compatible with XBee, thus it can be fitted in to SKXBee. It allows very simple yet reliable wireless communication between microcontroller, computer, or any system with serial communication. Both Point to point and point to multipoint communication are supported. Since XBee Pro pin is 2mm pitch to pitch and 3.3V system, please consider SKXBEE as starter kit.
