How to Buy

Digi XBee® and Digi XBee-PRO Zigbee RF modules provide cost effective wireless connectivity to electronic devices. They are interoperable with other Zigbee PRO feature set devices, including devices from other vendors*. Digi Zigbee Development Kits are the perfect way to begin Zigbee application development.

Digi XBee and Digi XBee-PRO Zigbee modules are ideal for applications in the energy and controls markets where manufacturing efficiencies are critical. The Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) provides a high-speed interface and optimizes integration with embedded microcontrollers, lowering development costs and reducing time to market.

Products in the Digi XBee family require little to no configuration or additional development. Programmable versions of the Digi XBee and Digi XBee-PRO Zigbee module make customizing applications easy. Programming directly on the module eliminates the need for a separate processor. Because the wireless software is isolated, applications can be developed with no risk to RF performance or security.

Digi’s Zigbee compatible module is based on the Ember EM35x (EM357 and EM3587) system on chip (SoC) radio ICs from Silicon Labs, utilizing 32-bit ARM® Cortex® M3 processor.

Digi had the expertise to help us develop the strategy to bring the solution to market in the most efficient way. Now, it’s saving cities around the world hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
