XBee USB Adapter Board (#32400)
This low cost XBee USB Adapter Board comes in partially assembled kit form and provides a cost-effective
solution to interfacing a PC ormicrocontroller to any XBee or XBee Pro module. By using this adapter
board you can provide an easy interface to the XBee or XBee Pro modules by converting the 2mm pin
spacing to breadboard friendly 0.100” spacing. The adapter boards also provide a means to connect
pluggable wires or solder connections and also provide mounting holes.

Step 3:

Using an Exacto knife,
hobby knife or a pair of
diagonal cutters, cut two 11pin headers from the 40-pin
header. Extra header
material was included in
case of a mistake or
damaged header.

Step 4 (optional):

Insert the two 11-pin SIP
headers into the bottom of
the adapter board as shown
and solder them in place
from the top.
This step is optional in thatyou could leave the headers
out and solder wires into the
pads instead if you wish.
Headers are also not needed
for PC communication or
power since both are
obtained from the USB port.

pointing your web browser to You may also obtain these drivers
from the FTDI website at Note: you may already have the
USB drivers installed if you have installed the Propeller Tool softwareor use any Parallax USB
development boards.
Once the USB driver has been installed you may connect your USB cable between the PC and the XBee
USB Adapter Board. The XBee USB Adapter is now ready to be configured via the X-CTU software from
Digi. Note that the functions of some of the I/O lines on the adapter can be configured from the X-CTU
software. As long as the USB port is providing...
