Read remote Xbee modules’ inputs on API stream

Read remote Xbee modules' inputs on API stream

and all of the images in the set

(It’s all on 1 page, w/o extras of forced annoying advertising, besides what hosting site may choose to do…)

Goal(s):

The reason behind this project was to see how the Digi’s Xbee modules work, and to figure out how to have the remote modules’ inputs read on another module. The local / …..

7 channel audio select controller

I’m separating the controller for the 7 channel audio selector as it’s own build… since it has issues of it’s own to note.

It’s using (from pc to micro logical view) a usb-to-serial converter and pic microcontroller. Also on the pc side is the interface app.

The usb-to-serial converter is a module from DLP design, which uses the FTDI’s FT232BM ic. …..

(the modeling shot)

Basically, an idea is to allows up to 7 devices, in this case (inputs or outputs, don’t matter), to be plugged in and to have them criss-cross connected across ‘busses’, to route the audio signal inputs to desired outputs. The goal is to have a remote, pc, or manual over-ride controlled source/destination bussed audio selector matrix.

Say, you …..

the orb project (stage 1, step 1, proof of concept and prototype)

I finally got around to trying to see how the thing would go along. I needed to figure out how to mount the leds, to shine into the piramid spikes.

The ‘structure’, or as I’ll refere to it as ‘the orb’, is intended to hold a candle on the inside, and provide illumination.

Ofcourse, I like electronics, and LEDs, so …..

controlling hd44780 based lcd direct from pc (winxp cli) with ftdi ft232bm module

quite a mouthfull for the title… controlling hd44780 based lcd direct from pc (winxp cli) with ftdi ft232bm module (should work with other newer ver’s of win… and other ver of ftdi232 modules, but didn’t test anything)

I have seen and ren across a few sites that do similar, or close, but I wanted a bit more. Add to that …..
