Topic: ARDUINO MINI WITH XBEE (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hi Everyone,

Im trying to get an xbee module to work with an arduino mini.
Im guessing that i'll need:

  • a regulated power supply
  • to connect the RX/TX wires from the xbee to the arduino

But before i blow up my new xmass present, can someone confirm this is correct, and warn me of any problems i could come accross?

Thank you,


You will also need to connect the power supply ground, the xbee ground, and the Arduino ground together.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.


3.3V Mini or 5V? It'll make a difference to how you connect the TX and RX pins to the Arduino I/O pins.

Do not try to power the XBee from the Arduino's onboard regulator. I've already fried a regulator that way.
