I got a FTDI Friend. Right now it's hooked up to an XBee Adapter kit with an Xbee GPS receiver
on it. To get this working (judging from the picture below it works)
I did not had to change anything, just hook it up, install drivers and tell the terminal at which speed it's supposed to communicate.
However, the LEDs on the Xbee adapter kit don't do anything. Got 2 kits and with both LEDs that stay off. I checked the polarity several times, they are positioned correctly.
Both LEDs are functional, I just tested them with the diode-test setting on my el-cheapo multimeter. So they aren't defective.
Is this because of the GPS module? As in, maybe the LEDs only work with specific Xbee modules.
And how will I know if I have to change the settings on the FTDI Friend for *insert-random-device-with-FTDI* and how/where can I find out what settings are required?
is incomplete, the voltage regulator suddenly appears on the pictures somewhere along the way ;)
