Bee Proto Board
The Bee PROTO Board from MikroE is a high-performance, low-power solution to add wireless communication functionality through the ZigBee module. Compliant with the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, this additional board features ATZB-24-A2/B0 ZigBit wireless module with an innovative balanced dual-band chip antenna. Backed with top-quality radio performance and easy integration, the Bee PROTO Board operates in the high-sensitivity 2.4 GHz ISM frequency range. The embedded 802.15.4 / ZigBee software provides standard-based wireless connectivity for a wide range of applications. It communicates to the microcontroller through simple UART communication interface using TX and RX pins. Selectable by jumper, it uses a 3.3V or 5V operation.
Bee PROTO Board makes a great option for building automation & monitoring, automated meter reading, industrial and environmental monitoring, security, inventory management and more.
