The term wireless RF stands for “wireless Radio Frequency Technology”. If you are just starting with radios, this article can help. It is proposed to give a basic understanding of radio frequency,as well work as a quick reference for those who “know their knowledge” but may be observed to brush up on that one place that they never quite understood. Radio frequency is a measurement signifying the oscillation rate of electromagnetic radio waves or electromagnetic radiation spectrum of frequencies ranging from 300 GHz to 9 kHz. With the use of transmitters and antennas, the radio frequency field can be used for several types of wireless communications.
In this tutorial, we going to discuss how can we interface a microcontroller with the Bluetooth technology. The Bluetooth will work with an Arduino board through the serial communication. The data is received to the Arduino with the HC-05 Bluetooth module through the serial communication and the LED’s will turn ON/OFF according to the receiving data. There are different types of Bluetooth modules are available in the market, but here we are using the HC-05 Bluetooth module because it is commonly used.
In communication, the Bluetooth wireless technology has become very popular and it is one of the fastest growing fields in the wireless technology. Hence it is important to learn how the HC 05 Bluetooth module interfacing with the microcontroller. Nowadays, demands of mobile phones and personal communication the bandwidth are easy and convenient to use. The Bluetooth technology manages the communication channel of the wireless part. The Bluetooth modules can transmit and receives the data wirelessly by using two devices. The Bluetooth module can receive and transmits the data from a host system with the help of the host controller interface (HCI). The UART & USB are the most popular host controller interfaces and in this article, we have discussed the UART. By using the UART connections, the Bluetooth module can be integrated and it gives the best possible solutions for the Bluetooth embedded systems. [Read more…]
A Multiplexer is a device that allows one of several analog or digital input signals which are to be selected and transmits the input that is selected into a single medium. Multiplexer is also known as Data Selector. A multiplexer of 2n inputs has n select lines that will be used to select input line to send to the output. Multiplexer is abbreviated as Mux. MUX sends digital or analog signals at higher speed on a single line in one shared device. It recovers the separate signals at the receiving end. The Multiplexer boosts or amplifies the information that later transferred over network within a particular bandwidth and time.This article gives an overview of what is multiplexer and types of multiplexer.
