1) Introduction

Making an LED illuminate is one of the first things many people do when they start learning electronics. We’re putting a wireless spin on that achievement by hooking up an LED to one of the XBee’s outputs.

XBee radios can be configured for up to 8 digital output pins that can be directly controlled by input pins on a second radio. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through how to program the radio and wire up an LED to an XBee so that you can use it to blink an LED wirelessly.
