Will be testing further over the next few days to get indication of range etc. So far it is only syncing at 1/100. I will be posting more details … Continue reading Trigger Fires Up
What did I say in my last entry about murphys law and my RFM12 header boards? Guess what arrived in the post today lol.....
After a hectic and very hot Christmas (41DegC) I managed to get some development time and finished 2 prototype boards. My RFM12 header boards still have not arrived, caught up in the christmas mail I guess 🙁 So I've had to resort to hand soldering some wires to the header in the meantime. (Murphys law suggests … Continue reading Strobit Triggr Prototype Finished

I have a couple of these sensors at home waiting for something this so I can have a play with them. PCB uploaded for … Continue reading SHT-15 Humidity Sensor

It was developed under BOOSTC for the PIC embedded controller, but should be easily ported to any compiler. Most of it is untested, hence the alpha release, but it's a … Continue reading RFM12 FSK Library – Alpha Release
