As of Tuesday, June 16th, 2015 we are selling two sockets together instead of just one!
XBees are so cute and tiny but if you’re using them in a circuit you’ll be annoyed to find that your classic 0.1″ headers don’t fit them! That’s because they use 2mm spacing instead of 2.54mm spacing. That’s why you need special sockets like these ones!
These sockets have 10 pins, spaced 2mm apart. Check the datasheet for a detailed diagram. You can find a footprint for the XBee that works with this connector in our Eagle Library (its called XBEE).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
