Digi announced the new Digi XBee® 3 Series of smart modules in 2018. Digi XBee 3 builds on industry-leading embedded technology, offers design freedom with easy-to-add functionality and flexible wireless connectivity. The new Micro form factor allows customers to shrink their devices with new low-power requirements making it ideal for battery-powered applications, and both portable and remote devices. It brings a new era of flexibility to mesh networking and new LTE cellular technologies enabling a higher level of abstraction without the lead times and complexities of chip-down designs. A few advanced features include:

  • Micro size – a reduced size, weight, and power consumption.
  • Micro-Python-programmable – RF connectivity for short range or Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN).
  • Design flexibility – RF and cellular options.

Today, developers of Internet of Things (IoT) devices require more options for connectivity as well as increased computing power for processing data at the edge of the network. The Digi XBee 3 series includes Zigbee 3.0 for mesh networking and Digi XBee 3 Cellular with the latest LTE technologies like LTE-M and NB-IoT. All available in the compact and pin-compatible form factor.

One socket allows you to connect to IoT networks around the globe.
