Controlling the BX-24 with a TV Remote Control

Started by Jamie August 20, 2003
Hi all,

We have put together a new example application that you may be interested in.

This example uses one of our new Infra Red Control Modules connected to the BX-24. The example demonstrates I2C communication between the two modules.

You can then use a TV remote control to send data to the IRCM. The BX-24 reads this data and displays it on a PC debug window.

Another neat feature is the ability to network between up to 255 IRCM modules connected to BX-24's. That's 255 individually controlled wireless units!

Hope you all like it!

Some time ago, I did a similar thing with a PIC.
Data to the BX-24 was just sent via standard serial data connection.

See:

I'm curious why I2C is most appropriate? I have numerous
sensors that I would like to be able to connect and disconnect
without a great deal of trouble.
