Radio module distributor and manufacturer LPRS is today unveiling an Arduino ‘shield’ for its “easyRadio Advanced” low power radio modules.
It has been developed by Rick Winscott of US company Quilix.
WInscott comments on easyRadio “All you need is power, ground, and two serial-capable pins and you have reliable bi-directional communication between microcontrollers, desktops, laptops, or whatever. No frustrations over pairing, and no twiddles with configuration. I haven’t seen anything like this product in the States.”
In combination with the Arduino platform remote sense and control applications can now be developed and tested with great ease and speed.
David Schmider, Technical Director at LPRS comments – “this really highlights the point of easyRadio, a simple to use RF link that removes the headache of writing configuration software”
The duo are being demonstrated today alongside the new easyRadio Connect2 development platform at the Fortronics RF & Wireless Forum.
In addition to manufacturing thel easyRadio Advanced (eRA) wireless modules in the UK, the full LPRS product range now includes, narrow band long range wireless modules from CDP, the IQRF range of wireless networking components, the IQVC range of visual control panels together with antenna, wireless key fobs and a wide range of sensor products.
