Sensors in Phone and Arduino Serial Communication

Sensors are one of the crucial things when it comes to building projects/robots. Many a times the sensor might be not available locally or it might take too long to ship. Smart phone have most of the basic sensors like proximity, accelerometer, light, magnetometer, gyroscope, etc. embedded and we can in fact use these sensors …

A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE ELTIMA VIRTUAL SERIAL PORT DRIVER

If you have used some form of hardware especially those legacy ones or something like the Arduino and other embedded systems you must have come across the term Serial Port, FTDI chip, USB to Serial, or RS232 at some point. So what are those? Well, they mean the same thing – Serial Communication Serial Port is …

Implementing serial communication in embedded systems

Serial communication was once the most widely used method of transferring data between computers. Many computing devices that you have used over time employ serial communication. Some of the terms associated with this type of data transfer are FTDI chip, COM interface, the RS232 protocol, and serial port. Serial communication refers to data that is …

IQRF module TR72D communicates at up to 600m distance

At cars, chip-tuning usually results in a higher power of a motor. Even the new communication module (transceiver) TR72D from IQRF has passed such „chip-tuning“ of RF portion, resulting in a higher max. RF output (up to 12mW). New RF chip – Spirit1, used at TR72D also provides excellent sensitivity and GMSK modulation (Gaussian Minimum …

Communication between a USB/serial device and an AVR (atmega/Arduino) microcontroller

I have a device which provides a USB port. If I attach it to a Windows PC it is recognized as a “CP2103 USB to UART Bridge Controller”. According to the device documentation, it should communicate in serial format at 38400bps.I have to talk to this device with a atmega microcontroller. Since the USB pinout …

Android Arduino Communication through Modbus and Rs485

In this post I’d like to describe you a project I’m working on that consists of connecting an Android development board to one (or more) Arduino slave(s) using modbus protocol and rs485. Even though the idea of this project could be applied in many fields, I chose to contextualize it in a typical smart home …
