I just finished a program started a couple of month ago. When I stared to it, I had a hard work to find how to sample a group of 256 values at 32Khz with the EFM32 device embedded in the Telecom Design TD1204 / TD1208 used for my SigFox project. This post details how to do this task
I had to work a little bit on an audio solution to get sound samples using a micro-controler. I based my design on an Internet really known circuit but I had to optimize it a little bit to be more efficient in terms of energy. This post is giving the result of my hack.
To go angular.js on Mac Os X from scratch, you need to do a couple of installation task ; After spending a full afternoon I can tell you it is not as easy as on Linux but now it works. Hope these line will help you to fire it in less than 15 minutes.
With the growing firewall constraints accessing a server over ssh is not always a pleasant journey ; I’ve read a korben post on GateOne html5 server side ssh client and I just got an opportunity to deploy it for a test. This post will detail how to install it and secure it a little bit.
TD1208, SigFox chips, include a RF LAN fonction, this allow you to communicate between different TD1208 chip, locally, without using the SigFox network. This is really interesting if you have a network of sensor, you can connect them this way to a gateway. This gateway will then transmit the information to the SigFox network to reach your IoT service.
This post will describe how the rf_lan work and how to implement it.
I’m not fully sure I implement it the right way as the given example are really poor, the documentation is a mess and the source code of this part is not accessible… More over, my feeling is that this part of the SDK is still running bugs. What I mean is that in a future post you should find an update and a better way to do it than the one I’m going to describe. By-the-way, what is here is working, have fun with it !
This is a PIR ( Infra Red ) sensor ; this device is detecting movement of people by sending a signal on its output. This sensor is generating a +3.3V signal on output when a movement is detected. The duration and the sensitivity can be parametrized.
As you can see on this photo, you have 3 things you can configure on this device that will impact its behavior. The purpose of this post is to describe the use of each.
