 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

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,
Conor

You will also need to connect the power supply ground, the xbee ground, and the Arduino ground together.

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.
