Hardware Interface

Wireless module consists of wireless extension and Arduino probe.

Wireless extension, as a receiver, connect to extension interface of DSLogic core module, send received data to DSLogic. There is a USB port and two programming interface, can be used to program wireless extension itself and Arduino probe under Arduino IDE. For more detail information, refer to Wireless Extension Page

Arduino Probe, as a transmitter, connect to various Arduino compatible sensor module, read and process the sensor data, then transmit the processed data to wireless extension. For more detail information, refer to Arduino Probe Page

Arduino Bootloader

Both of Wireless extension and Arduino Probe are Arduino compatible board, and compatible Arduino bootloader can be directly used and download to them through the bootloader program interface as following. Currently, both of them are programmed with the bootloader of Arduino pro and pro mini(3.3v, 8MHz)w/ ATmega168

Program Wireless Extension

  • Step 1: Connect program interface of wireless extension board with jumper.
  • Step 2: Connect wireless extension board to USB port of your computer.
  • Step 3: Check the serial port number the wireless extension board.
  • Step 4: Open the Arduino IDE, and select the right serial port.
  • Step 5: Select the right Arduino board for wireless extension board. Currently, we use the compatible Arduino board: Arduino pro and pro mini(3.3v, 8MHz)w/ ATmega168
  • Step 6: Open the program you want to upload, and click the upload tool button to program wireless extension board.
  • Step 7: During the programming, check the LED status on wireless extension board. The TX and RX LED should alternately flashing.
  • Step 8: Check the Arduino IDE status. It should done uploading without any error message.
