Do you need ‘moar power’ for your wireless widget? The XBee-PRO XSC 900 MHz RF module features two times the throughput and 20 times less current draw than the previous XSC module. This version (S3B) features an ADF7023 transceiver from Analog Devices, which can toss your data up to 28 miles Line-of-Sight (LOS), along with low power consumption, drawing less than 2.5 uA in power down.
Also, the latest XBee-PRO XSC is firmware compatible with the legacy 9XStream® and the legacy XBee-PRO XSC modules. And because it’s an XBee RF device it is, of course, pin compatible with existing through-hole XBee modules.

Note: This module does not work properly with anything connected to the RSSI pin. Our current XBee Explorer USB and XBee Explorer Dongle have a solder jumper on them to let you disconnect the RSSI led.
Note: Due to manufacturer’s restrictions in other countries, we can only ship these to the USA and Canada. Sorry world!

This board is unique in the XBee family because it has a slightly different pinout. For standard pass-through uses, this board can be mounted to one of our XBee regulator boards with a small adjustment. You will need either the dongle or the explorer to make the needed adjustment easily. Locate the RSSI jumper on the back, and cut the trace between the pads with a small knife.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.
