Xadow - Breakout

Introduction

Perhaps you want to connect various modules to Xadow. For example, an IR sensor which can detect whether someone is near by. You can connect the sensor to this Breakout Module.

Specification


  • A adapter
  • Compatible with all Grove Module in hardware
  • Dimensions: 25.43mm x 20.35mm

Demonstration


Below is the Demo to control a buzzer. You need to connect Grove - Buzzer to Xadow Breakout with a Grove cable and connect Xadow Breakout to Xadow Main Board with a FFC cable.

Xadow breakout not only can control some modules which are IIC communication or Serial communication, but also can control other modules because the two Grove connectors can be used as Digital port or Analog port. In other words, it can control all Grove modules.

The demo code like this:

Void setup()
{
    DDRD |=0x04;
}
void loop()
{
    PORTD |=0x04;
    delay(500);
    PORTD &=~(0x04);
    delay(500);
}

Now you can hear the buzzer “Bi Bi Bi”. You can replace it with Grove - LED and see the LED on/off.

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
