BeagleBone Proto Cape

The Logic Supply BeagleBone XBee Cape makes wireless connectivity easy. Just insert the XBee RF module that best suits your application, and quickly start controlling your remote device. Ideal for robotics and control applications.

Through-hole solderpoints are spaced at 2.54mm (0.1") pitch. It includes two 46 pin headers (soldering required) and provides convenient SOT23 SMD IC's breakouts. The GND, 3V, 5V, SYS5V and P8-P9 trace banks are all clearly marked on the PCB for easy identification. An on-board 3.3 volts low drop out (LDO) regulator ensures sufficient current for the RF module.

In addition to the prototyping area, two LEDs can be installed to display status, with right-angle mounting options. You can also add two push-button switches mounted on the edge of the board. For increased flexibility, the circuit board accepts either a vertical or right-angle style push-button. The right-angle push-button is accessible when using the expandable Logic Supply case. The XBee Proto Cape works with both the original BeagleBone and the BeagleBone Black.
