Out of stock. Been replaced by device with many more features, see link below
Designed to add a little more polish than our existing XBee to USB product. The interface adds plenty of extra funtions all wrapped in a smart black enclosure. Note: this interface does not come with an XBee or XRF.

I recently bought a few XBee's and the FTDI box with a view to getting a remote temperature sensor going on a Raspberry PI. I've not managed to get the XCF software to talk to the FTDI box yet. Where as there is a lot of docs / info out there (eg on openmicros.org) it seems to be a bit "for experts, by experts", and I'm not really in that category!

Makes programming and re-programming an XRF module a breeze. £20 very well spent.
Why 4 stars instead of 5? The XCM software to drive this is Windows only, and although it works very well is prone to crashing. Also the explanation for some the settings is quite hard to find.
NOTE FROM CISECO: Sorry we didnt get 5 stars, the XCM surce code is available and will (we hear) compile in mono. We would suggest using standard AT commands along with you favorite terminal software as the more reliable option. We are planning to improve the documentation now that all the XRF features are stable.
