Re: Xbee Adapter Kit and a Roomba
Firstly, sorry to hijack such an old thread, but it still contains relevant info to my question.
I bought my first Roomba 650 2 weeks ago. It's a great little robot, not sure why I waited so long to get one. Like xxmagnusxx, I'd like to use my Xbee adapter kit with the built Roomba serial port. Everything looks like it will work out, but my only concern is the 3.3v regulator. From what I've read, the voltage output of the Roomba serial DIN is an unregulated +16v.
Is there a suitable replacement TO-92 package regulator I could use on the Xbee adapter to help it handle the higher voltage requirements? I'd like to avoid putting a 5v regulator (with supporting components) in front of the Xbee adapter.
