The XBee Carrier is a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) board designed for Bee series modules and Twig modules.  It is primarily suitable for standalone Bee Nodes like RFBee, Wifi Bee which have ATMega328 onboard.  It is compatible with RFBee, Wifi Bee, XBee and Bluetooth Bee.  Besides a Bee module socket, there are also two Twig connectors.  The board can be powered by a lithium battery or through a USB cable.  You can use a wireless charger, solar panel or the USB interface to charge a battery when attached to this module.  The on-board FT232RL chip allows you to download programming to Bee Module directly.

Bees which do not have an ATMega328 (like the Bluetooth Bee) can only be configured using the on-board FT232RL(USB to UART). Theses Bees are not suitable for standalone applications.

The on-board FT232RL can be used like any other 3.3V USB to UART interface when not connected to any Bee Modules. This is useful for programming a 3.3V MCU through Serial Port.
