With up-to 5 meters range, you can bring your laptop wireless program your already deployed Arduino based devices which may be hard to open. Cut the wire, and try this superb communication module.
This module can also be used as a standard bidirectional wireless communication module with up to 20 meters range and 115200 bps speed(line in sight). When uses as communication modules, it exchanges data as a transparent serial port. Only Tx/Rx will be required to do the transmission.
Suitable for outdoor Arduino based devices.
Suitable for Arduino based robots.
Suitable for devices which are hard to reach.
Its pin out is compatible with XBee socket. You will need at least a Xbee Adapter and one of the following shield to perform the wireless programming:
XBee Adatper V2.
DFRduino IO Expansion Shield V5.
DFRduino Mega IO Expansion Shield V1.2.
Mega IO Expansion Shield V2.1.
DFRduino Xbee Shield.
