XBee has become extremely popular among robot builder and embedded wireless communication. It can be used for control and monitoring, data streaming, real-time wireless update and also the wireless downloader. Finally, the user can enjoy another simple yet reliable wireless communication for robots. However, using XBee OEM RF module need extra work to interface since it is 3.3V power and require 3.3V interface. Besides, the pins are a 2mm pitch to pitch that is not compatible with prototype board. With these reasons, Cytron Technologies has designed Starter kit for the user to easily utilize XBee module. With SKXBee, the user only requires 4 simple wiring to offer wireless communication to 5V microcontroller. On board USB interface, can easily turn SKXBee into XBee dongle.  This package combines the SKXBee and XBee Series 1 module.

Hi ! If I use arduino with xbee as a transmitter , can I recieve data using SKxbee with computer as reciver ?. Or I must use ( arduino, xbee and computer )as reciveing point ? ( Azam, 25/04/2016 )

Hi, You can use SKXbee + Xbee with the computer as receiver. Note that Xbee for transmitter should be the same module/series as XBee for the receiver. For further inquiry, kindly visit our technical forum as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)
