- support for the XBee family of wireless RF modules (XBee, XBee Pro, XBee Wi-Fi, and the similar foot-printed Roving Networks WiFly RN-XV);
- ability to easily connect a second display; this is achieved by moving the power connector on the "right" side, plus bringing the extension display connector closer to the bottom of the board.
Wise Clock 4 is "almost" compatible with Wise Clock 3. To run the existing sketch on Wise Clock 4, two changes are required:
- Plus button is now on D3 (D2 is now designated for interrupts from RTC);
- D15 is now connected to the CS line of the display, replacing D11, which is now used for communication with the Xbee module.
As can be noticed from the photos, a few more components are in SMD package (necessary to keep the size of the board to a minimum, to fit in the back of the 3216 display):
- the level shifting buffer 74HC125;
- three optional LEDs: 2 for the XBee communication lines, one for power;
- the 3V3 voltage regulator MIC5219, capable of providing 500mA.
