About this product

The Wireless SD shield allows an Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using a wireless Xbee module or similar plus a micro-SD card slot. The Wireless SD shield allows an Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using a wireless Xbee module from Digi. It can also use any module with the same footprint. A micro-SD card slot is included on-board. User Level: Advanced Overview The Wireless SD shield allows an Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using a wireless module. It is based on theXbee modules from Digi, but can use any module with the same footprint. The module can communicate up to 100 feet indoors or 300 feet outdoors (with line-of-sight). It can be used as a serial/usb replacement or you can put it into a command mode and configure it for a variety of broadcast and mesh networking options. The shields breaks out each of the Xbee's pins to a through-hole solder pad. Included on board is a SD card slot. When using the SD Library to access the card, Pin 4 is CS and cannot be used otherwise. SPI also relies on pins 11, 12, and 13 for communication. An on-board switch allows the wireless module to communicate with the USB-to-serial converter or with the microntroller. FAQ There is a library relating to the Shield? Refer to digi website to use the XBee Module The Shield is designed for the use of TinkerKit? It does not provide connectors for TinkerKit components What are the compatible shields with mine?
