13 Aug: Getting Started with Bluetooth BEE

The Bluetooth Bee (BTBEE) is an easy to use Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) module compatible with existing XBEE sockets, designed for transparent wireless serial connection setup. Using UART interface, BTBEE only can be use as a slave and communicate with host like computer, bluetooth handphone, SKKCA and other bluetooth devices. Bare in mind that communication between 2 BTBEE is not working. Bluetooth BEE is compatible with XBEE starter kit board (SKXBEE-BOARD) and UC00B, so you may use them for BTBEE communication.

10 Aug: Project 11 – 7 segment display with I/O

Nowadays, 7 segment has become the most popular display unit on market because it is cheap, easy to program and small. On market, we can found that there was 2 types of 7 segment which is common anode and common cathode. In this project, we are going to use 7 segment with common cathode and directly interface to microcontroller.

10 Aug: Project 10 – Driving DC brush motor with MD10C

MD10C is an enhanced version of the MD10B which is designed to drive high current brushed DC motor up to 10A continuously. It offers several enhancements over the MD10B such as support for both locked-antiphase and sign-magnitude PWM signal as well as using full solid state components which result in faster response time and eliminate the wear and tear of the mechanical relay.
