XBee line is a simple to use USB to serial base unit. This unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series 2.5, standard and Pro version. Plug the unit into the XBee Explorer, attach to mini USB cable, and you will have access to the serial and programming pins on the XBee unit.

The highlight of this board is an FT231X USB-to-Serial converter. That's what your XBee computer translates. The XBee with plenty of power is also a reset button. In addition, there are four LEDs that will help you if you need to debug your XBee: RX, TX, RSSI (signal-strength indicator), and power indicator.

The board also breaks out of the XBee's I / O pins to a pair of breadboard-compatible headers. I know if you want to make use of XBee's extended functionality, you can solder some headers into those, or even just solder some wire.
