 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi, everyone!

I have a couple of questions:

 - Regarding the Xbee's: Where can I find a reliable comparison between the xbee S1 and the xbee S2?

 - Regarding th serial Ports: Where can I find a reliable comparison between the Serial Port  and the Software Serial Port?

Thanks in advance!!

Best Regards!!

Xbee's - did you look at the digi.com website?

Serial - what would you compare?
Hardware vs Software. Fixed IO pins vs any IO pins. Less code needed to run vs more code to run. Faster top speed available vs limited by the software to something slower.
