Notes

So far only tested with the mbed Application Board, where p9: tx; p10: rx

Available from: http://shop.ciseco.co.uk/xrf-wireless-rf-radio-uart-rs232-serial-data-module-xbee-shape-arduino-pic-etc/

3V3 device for communication with other XRFs, e.g. on mbed, Arduino, Raspberry Pi etc. Works well with XRF-based sensors for temperature etc.

If configured as serial module (default setting fresh from the box), pin 2 (tx) and pin 3 (rx) serve for serial communication. XRF default is 9600 Baud. Pin 1: 3V3, Pin 10: GND (that's counting from the top underneath the XRF print).
