[Retired]ProgBee UART Programmer (Xbee Supported)


Availability: Out of stock SKU: DPR1013 Category: Tags: , , ,


ProgBee is a FTDI based USB to Serial adapter equipped with a xbee socket (20pin 2.0mm). The integrated FT232RL can be used for programming or communicating with MCUs. On the other hand, you might connect your PC to various wireless applications via a Bee compatible module. ProgBee provides breakouts for the bit-bang mode pins of FT232RL as well. The Bit-bang mode pins (8 I/O pins) can be used as a replacement for applications involving the PC parallel port.
