Topic: XBEE interfacing with Serial Port (Read 724 times) previous topic - next topic



I'm trying to interface an XBEE (S2C) with an Arduino 101, but I cannot establish the communication with the regular connections between the 101 and the XBEE USB explorer interface:

XBEE             101
Din---------> Tx (D1)
Dout--------> Rx (D0)
5v-----------> 5v
Gnd---------> Gnd

If I use a software serial, this works  (ie (Din,Dout)----->(D3,D2), etc). Does some one have any insights into why this is true?  any help will really be valuable.



I played with the XBee quite some time ago and had issues as well.  Got it working by putting the xbee and serial1 and a GPS on a software serial.
