  • This looks more like something out of the Apollo command module. It is beautiful, and everything about it says quality. This is why I love SparkFun.

  • From the San Francisco mint, no less!

  • Thanks Mike, much appreciated.

  • He’s the only one with a cigarette! Doesn’t he know that smoking kills? ;-)

  • @Member243046: When you plug it in, it shows up in Device Manager under Ports (COM & LPT) category as USB Serial Port (COM19) (well, it’s COM19 on my system). You must first install the FTDI driver set. Because of the way the FTDI drivers are designed, in Device Manager under Universal Serial Bus controllers category, the entry USB Serial Converter also appears. You use a virtual serial COM port to communicate with this device.

  • @MikeGrusin, how can one access the CTS and RTS pins, by soldering from underneath the board, since the XBee chip would be sitting on the top? I am not a hardware person, so I am sorry in advance if this is a silly question! Thanks.

  • This has to be one of the lengthiest product pages on SparkFun, due to the large number of comments! I have this board, and have been able to get a Series 1 XBee to work with it. So, I am confused - multiple people say the diode (b/w pins 4 and 5) needs to be shorted/jumpered, but my board works fine as is. Could someone from SparkFun jump into the conversation and clear up the outstanding questions, please? Thanks.

No public wish lists :(
