Convenient small break out board for the Raspberry PI. XBee style connector for XRF / XBee / RN-XV / XBT / RF-BEE etc. Has the SPI and I2C pins on one standard 8 way header and the Raspberry PI's 8 general purpose I/O pins on another for easy access. Comes as a kit of parts that needs to be soldered. Construction is very easy and suitable for children with basic soldering skills.

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Tim - Cool breakout board verified purchaser

    Well laid out and well printed board. (Posted on 20/11/2014)

  2. Review by Ray - Very Useful verified purchaser

    Yep, very very useful. (Posted on 21/02/2014)

  3. Review by IrOS - Great little board

    A neat little board that makes adding an Xbee radio module or similar so simple. Handy that it still allows access to the other I/O pins. Has space for a 5V to 3.3V regulator (which I needed due to the 3.3V current needed by my Xbee exceeding the RPi 3.3V pin output limit). One very small thing, it was fiddly cutting the 3.3V track when I added the regulator. A couple of pads to cut between or a link in the track would be a nice addition. Great value for money.
