XBee Wireless Connectivity Kit introduced by Digi International and Digi-Key
Digi International and Digi-Key Electronics have announced the Digi XBee Wireless Connectivity Kit (XKB2-AT-WWC).Initially available through Digi-Key for 90 days, the platform provides a resource for developers to better understand how XBee RF modules can be used for wireless device connectivity and sensor networking solutions.
"This is another step in our relationship with Digi-Key to enable hundreds of thousands of engineers to realise the value that Digi products offer," said Richard Halliday, vice president of channel sales and alliances, Digi International. "Working with Digi-Key provides an efficient way to expose all types of designers to the entire breadth of innovative wireless capabilities Digi International offers."
The technology is said to enable fast time-to-market, design flexibility, low development costs, and excellent range for those seeking to incorporate wireless capabilities into a whole new range of products and solutions.This connectivity kit offers beginners and experienced designers and engineers alike the opportunity to incorporate wireless communications into their designs.
The kit features two XBee Grove Development Boards that incorporate the universal 4 pin connector used by Grove sensors, two XBee RF modules and micro-USB cables. With the kit, developers can gain an understanding of how to incorporate wireless connectivity into their solutions, as well as create prototypes for testing POC.
"By providing this solution, engineers can quickly understand all the value that wireless connectivity can bring to their solution and how easy it is to incorporate," said David Stein, vice president, Global Semiconductors at Digi-Key. "We're excited to continue introducing offerings that showcase the exceptional capabilities of the XBee product line."
