    990.002 XBee USB Board


    The XBee - USB Board has been designed to allow easy and reliable connection between the Xbee’s modules and PC. XBee and XBeePRO modules are fully supported, even the new XBee Series 2 is supported (but not tested yet).
    The rock solid construction, the soft start circuitry and the high power voltage regulator; ensure the maximum reliability and full performances of the XBee module.
    Four useful LEDs allow constant monitoring of the board activity and fast troubleshooting. A Features Connector provides the most important connections with the XBee module and the USB chip adding great flexibility to this board.
    The USB Mini B connector ensures a compact and easy to use board. Now with a USB to Serial
    connector, the 990.002 can be used as an USB to Serial converter!
