Xadow - Buzzer


This is a Xadow module which can emit a tone. To drive it, you need to give control to two pins simultaneously: this is different from Grove - Buzzer which uses one pin to control. It is petite but loud! It can be used for making beeps, tones and alerts.

Xadow is a small but perfectly formed Arduino(TM) compatible board series containing several modules. It’s a kit extremely suitable for space-sensitive projects such as wearable devices & arts designs, which have higher request on size, weight and flexible cascade connection. You can find more modules here.


  • Work Voltage: 3.3V
  • FundamentalFrequency: 2700Hz
  • Sound Pressure Level: >75dB
  • Dimensions: 25.43mm x 20.35mm


There is an easy demo to show how to drive buzzer sound. If you have successfully used it, then you can apply it to your great projects, such as detecting the battery status: the buzzer will emit a sound when Xadow Main Board is in low battery.

void setup()
    DDRB |= 0x06;

void loop()
    //turn on the buzzer
    PORTB |= 0x06;
    //turn off the buzzer
    PORTB &= ~(0x06);


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
