Connecting XBee to Arduino WITHOUT XbeeShield

How can I connect my series1 XBee module to the Arduino UNO board to work with the Series1_IoSamples Sketch of XBee Library...
:cold_sweat: :slight_smile:

Connect the power pin to the 3.3V pin. Connect the ground pin to ground. Connect the TX and RX pins to the TX and RX pins on the Arduino.

But, really, you should have a shield or breakout board of some sort. soldering directly to the XBee is not a good idea.
