    Teensy to XBee Adaptor Kit alternative

    Hi everybody

    What would be an alternative for the discontinued Teensy to XBee Adaptor Kit to work with a T3.6?

    Best regards,
    Gil

    As mentioned in the discontinued listing, you could try the sparkfun board: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13311
    But as mentioned it is for t3.1/2...

    I was going to suggest their regulated adapter, but I probably would avoid as it looks like it converts the signal back to +5v which is not good for T3.6
    Could probably adapt the board

    Could use their breakout board: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8276

    Thanks KurtE.

    I have one of those: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8276
    I bought it by mistake, but I was wondering if I would have to adapt it or if there was some ready-made option out there.
    I just found the original Teensy to Xbee Adaptor in-stock in a online-store though.

    cheers

    You are welcome,

    The sparkfun product will work, you simply need to run wires from the appropriate pins
    That is you need:
    3.3v - Can use the feed from Teensy with most XBees... Not sure about some of the high power ones
    GND - to gnd
    DIN - I believe goes to UART TX pin (unless they meant connect to your IN pin ...)
    DOUT - I believe goes to UART RX pin

    That may be all you need... Been awhile since I used XBees... I built some into my own boards, sometimes used breakout boards (but with t3.2 did not have to worry about 5v) or on some of my boards I had Arduino like pins, so could use a shield...
