Tenet Technetronics’ XBee Explorer Regulated break –out board translates the 5V serial signals to 3.3V serial signal, so that any XBee module can be connected to a 5V system directly. This XBee Explorer Regulated also takes care of signal conditioning, and basic activity indicators (Power, RSSI and DIN/DOUT activity LEDs).
This XBee Explorer Regulated works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and 2, standard and Pro versions. You just need to plug an XBee module into this breakout and you will have direct access to the serial and programming pins on the XBee unit and will be able to power the XBee with 5V.
This XBee Explorer Regulated board comes fully populated with 3.3V regulator (12V max input), XBee socket, four status LEDs, and level shifting. In the latest revision the diode level shifter is replaced with a more robust MOSFET level shifter.
