  • I just had this problem. Thanks! I'm guessing I'll run into the same issue on the XBee Explorer USB which was going to be the other half of my link.

  • Given that the 3.3V regulator has a max 16V input, is it a fair to say that a 16V input would make the DIN and DOUT signals 16V? I can see that the level shifter will provide 3.3V to the XBee, but won't the high voltage reference be the same as the supply voltage? I'm thinking this would blow the works on the Arduino side (if using one), where the TX and DX pins accept only 5V. I'm still learning to read the schematics properly, but this looks to be the case. Is this right? If so, it's the users responsibility to supply ~5V?

No public wish lists :(
