Well there aren't really any downloads for this projects just yet. However for the prototype based on the PIC16F88: Drawings are available here BoostC source code and Eagle files are here . If you have any questions please contact me via the contact form.

Prototype

Prototype Specs: PIC16F88 running on internal 8MHz Clock - low cost and very popular, free development tools available, i.e. C compiler. Works in unlicensed 915MHz ISM Band(Australia/US), can work at 433Mhz by changing RF module(US/EU/Australia). RF uses FSK Modulation - Less prone to interference sources. All aspects of the RF module is configurable via the … Continue reading Prototype

RFM12 FSK Library – Alpha Release

I'm pleased to announce the very ALPHA release of the RFM12 library for the wireless HopeRF RFM12 FSK tranceiver module that I'm using for the strobist open trigger project.  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

PICAXE – LED Sensor

I came across an interesting article yesterday on Hack-A-Day about using a LED as a Photo Sensor and cheap communictaion device.  This is achieved by using some physical properties of the LED for both Transmit and Receive.  The article also links to a cool video clip demonstrating this. Original Article can be found here http://www.hackaday.com/entry/1234000873073550/ Anyway this sparked my interest … Continue reading PICAXE – LED Sensor
