Maxstream XBee RF module documentation

I have digged out the specifications for the Maxstream XBee RF modules, which I received as part of the "Dare To Dream Different" competition package. Please note that there is also a Zigbee variant of these modules. The ones I received are 802.15.4 versions. I'm not currently sure of the differences, so you have to look that up yourself if you need it. You can find the specs. and other information here: 1. XBee XB24-AWI-001 802.15.4 module product manual. 2. XBee XBIB-U-DEV development board diagram. 3. USB driver for Windows (for the development board) Peter

Dare To Dream Different hardware arrived today

Yihaa, today I received a package with the MF development board and other stuff. The package contains the Tahoo-II development board from Device Solutions, a USB cable, 2 XBee 802.15.4 radio modules from Maxstream and an XBee development board so that one of the radio modules can be connected to a PC on the USB port.  There was no USB cable for the XBee development board and there is no documentation on the XBee stuff at all! I will probably also need a USB driver for that board. - Well I guess that I just have to find it on the Internet... XBee dev. board to the left and Tahoo-II board to the right. Two XBee radio modules on the top.   The backside of the Tahoo-II board - the Meridian MF processor in the lower left corner.   The Meridian processor board is not much bigger than a standard SD memory card!      Close up on the two XBee modules.     The XBee development board.     This just looks nice and I'm looking forward to get started playing with it.
