Yes these kit reviews are helpful for a broader spectrum, interested on ethernet, WiFi, and touch sensor.

Iron

both starting from scratch if it is a new project or start editing if already had a similar one.

Iron

Most of the time Microchip dev tools

Iron

Answering past questions, I design my own development tools and at least a couple of pcb rev are required.

Iron

Yes I have a wireless project at this time.

Iron

Have several WIFI project going

Iron

is this a mesh network ?

Iron

Thank you Jon and Rob, good session and good questions.

Yes, review is helpful and I would like to more kit reviews about wireless kits, MCU kits, any vendors, pros and cons

Use a code example for project start ups

Some time I do get a 3rd party sw

Always, I do modification on the dev-boards to accompany any needed variations of experiments.

No current wireless project, but do have some plans for Zigbee

Hello to archive from Oregon

Thanks Jon

Nice lecture 

The wireless sniffer seems like a nice addition

Ready for another good lecture

Okay almost caught up

Signing off until Session 5 on 22 June 2012.  I'll answer more questions after that session.  Thank you for joining us for Session 4. --Jon

Blogger

Thanks again and look forward to tomorrow. I think that it may provide the most useful information on how to approach and decide among the wide variety of options out there.

Thanks again

I have access to the LPC13xx and LPC17xx expresso boards but haven't had time to play with them.

I'm actively using IAR IDE with JTAG/SWD probe (Kickstart) with an LPC11xx processor and have been reasonably impressed. 

Jon, have you looked at the newer Cortex M series development Kits yet?

if so which processors have you looked into?

 

I have worked with the TI Stellaris kits for the Cortex-M3 and have used an ARM mbed board with an NXP LPC1768.  Very nice.  I haven't worked with the NXP Expresso boards, but have them on my list.  They look good.

Blogger

In particular have you looked into the NXP Expresso boards?

Jon, have you looked at the newer Cortex M series development Kits yet?

if so which processors have you looked into?

START TIME: Shouldn't the conference become available a few minutes in advance, so we have time to settle the equipment, do the download, and cope with some of the tune up time?

 

Download of PowerPoint slides available quite some time before start of audio.  Audio starts right on time for each session.

Blogger

Do you have any experience with soft processors with FPGA kits?

 

Yes, but limited and not very current.  I have used Xilinx FPGA and Cypress PSoC-3.

Blogger

What is the rf pwr legal limit?

For power information and FCC requirements, visit: http://www.nts.com/pdf/whitepapers/6_NTS%2080215%20FCC%20white%20paper.pdf.

Blogger

Had an interrupt part way through.

Modify Development kits - Yes

Usefulness of review - moderately useful - good compare and contrast between them.

More - yes especally NXP and Tool vendor based not just manufacturer based.

Can you change MAC to resolve conflicts?

No, but each MAC address is unique, so no addressing conflicts.  The IEEE 802 protocols all use MAC addresses with 64 bits.

Blogger

Thanks Jon for  the presentation. Sorry I couldn't attend live. I will see you tomorrow.

Iron

WHAT KIND OF ADDRESS: is that one on the temperature display?

 

That is the MAC (Media Access Control) address unique to each communication device.  This dev kit displays the three least-significant bytes of the address in hexadecimal format.

Blogger

Was hoping this would have more on the Wireless Protocol

 

The prorocol is usually transparent.  You use the API functions to control network setup and control.  The documentation information shown in the slides will get you off to a good start.

Blogger

Whats your opinion on CC430 TI's MCU+RF chip?

 

Another choice worth a look.  I cannot recall the names of every protocol TI makes available, but they have their own SimpliciTI, 802.15.4, ZigBee, RF4CE, etc...

Blogger

@drw36 - MPLAB X does allow you to import and use projects from MPLAB 8, and maybe earlier versions.

 

Right, you import them as legacy projects.

Blogger

@drw36 - MPLAB X does allow you to import and use projects from MPLAB 8, and maybe earlier versions.

Well, Better late than never.

Iron

thanks rob - and thanks to digikey - keep those starbucks coupons flowing

Iron

thanks jon - great information and excellent presentation. see you tomorrow

Iron

Time here for a lunch break--back later. --Jon

Blogger

@Jon - still confused about costs and your demo. It seems you needed two systems for demo, one to send, the other to receive. each system consisted of four boards. therefore, the cost of each system would be $150?

 

Sorry for the confusion.  The $300 kit includes two MCU cards, two wireless PICtail cards, two LCD cards, and two serial-port cards.  Also, 2 USB cables, and 2 RS-232 cables.  You don't need anything else.  If you want to add additional nodes to a network, you could but an extra PIC18 Wireless Development Board and an extra MRF24J40 PICtail for each extra node.  I assume any extra nodes would not need an LCD or a serial card.  MRF24J40 PICtail card, $US 25.  I could not quickly find the "8-bit Wireless Development Board" so contact the company for a price on this board.

 

 
Blogger

@jl: I assume MPLAB X is fully backward compatible. The IDE should not impact the code.  Of course it really depends on the compiler used. You'd need to visit Microchip site to see details of compiler choices.

Iron

jon - rob - are u still on chat?

Iron

@drw36 - is MPLAB X backward compatible. that is, I already have projects built in MPLAB 8.0 and 8.41. can I simply upgrade (install) MPLAB X and then be able to access and built my existing projects?

Iron

MazianLab asks Is this kit compatible with all types of Microchip MCUs?

The kit is stand alone.  I suppose you could use other Microchip MCUs to control the MiWi protocol, but you would have to ask Microchip.  The wireless PICtail card should work with other MCUs and MCU boards, but check Microchip's information to be sure.

Blogger

@Jon - still confused about costs and your demo. It seems you needed two systems for demo, one to send, the other to receive. each system consisted of four boards. therefore, the cost of each system would be $150?

Iron

Jl asks: Is this $300 for all four boards

 

Yes, for the complete set of eight (8) boards and four (4) cables.  You need four AA-size batteries.

Blogger

e-See you all tomorow.

Iron

@JI: MPLAB X is Microchips new version of MPLAB and it is now crossplatform (Win, Mac & Linux).

Iron

Looking forward to tomorow's recommendations on criteria for board selection.

Iron

Sherlock asks: Is MiWi is a popular standard?

 

Popular with people who use Microchip products.  Although the MiWi protocol code is free, you cannot use it with devices from other vendors, per Microchip's license arrangements.

Blogger

Rob and Jon Thanks for the informative session.

Iron

Thanks Jon for a great lecture!

Iron

Jl asks: What is the complexity to communicate to another node rather than another Microchip wireless system. that is communicating with a PC or internet web site?

Blogger

Jl asks: Is the mplab X a newer version of Microchips MBLAB, or is it specific to the boards you are using?

 

The MPLAB X IDE will work with any of Microchip's MCU.  It is not specific to this kit.

Blogger

Sherlock asks: Is MiWi is a popular standard?

Blogger

what is the complexity to communicate to another node rather than another Microchip wireless system. that is communicating with a PC or internet web site?

You wouldn't use the MiWi protocol or an 802.15.4 transceiver module to communicate information to a PC or an Internet connection for general-purpose use.  The transceivers have a range of about 100 feet indoors, perhaps as far as 300 feet outdoors (clear field).  Data rates are about 250 kbits/second.  You would use these modules in sensor networks, for security systems, building monitors, etc.  You CAN connect them to a PC to report this information, but you wouldn't use them for Web browsing or email communications.  For those apps, use WiFi.

Blogger

Gamatec asks: How is realized the communication between the kit and the microcontroller ?

Can i connect this kit with another microcontrollers (non Microchip) ?.

Blogger

Jl asks: Is the mplab X a newer version of Microchips MBLAB, or is it specific to the boards you are using?

Blogger

Luizcosta asks: Do any of these kits have all provided software available for Linux, QNX, XINU, OS X, or other OS?

Blogger

Jl asks: Is this $300 for all four boards

Blogger

MazianLab asks Is this kit compatible with all types of Microchip MCUs?

Is Zena duplex? sorry I mean is MiWi Duplex

No, simplex only.  The 802.15.4 has a collision avoidance "mechanism" to prevent crashes, but it operates simplex on one channel.  The 802.15.4 spec includes the means to detect busy channels and find low-energy channels when modules set up a PAN.

Blogger

Thanks Jon. I look forward to meet tomarrow.

Iron

Thanks again, Jon!  Good information.

Iron

Does the source code come with the API?

Don't know.  I believe some of the underlying C code is available, but not sure if you have access to everything.  You could download the sample software and take a look.

Blogger

 

Is Zena duplex? sorry I mean is MiWi Duplex

No, simplex, receive only. It simply monitors traffic and breaks communications into the bits and bytes for the MiWi protocol. Look at Microchip's specs to find out if it can handle "bare" 802.15.4 communications or ZigBee. I suspect the receiver chip can, but not sure about the PC-based interpreting software MC supplies

Iron

Does the sniffer monitor the tx and recieve msgs. and does the software support filtering?

It monitors all wireless traffic at one of the 2.4 GHz channels, so you get all messages.  I don't know if it has filtering.  It does not transmit.

Blogger

Thanks Jon and Rob..See you all tomorrow.

Iron

Does the source code come with the API?

Iron

Whats your opinion on CC430 TI's MCU+RF chip?

Iron

Blogger

Has anyone heard of the Raspberry Pi - http://www.raspberrypi.org/?cm_mmc=uk-email-_-other-_-uk-210612-raspberry_pi_weeklyupdate2-_-0

Does the sniffer monitor the tx and recieve msgs. and does the software support filtering?

Iron

Does MiWi include excryption and compression that can be modified?

 

You can turn security on or off, as needed, via the API: #define ENABLE_SECURITY.  I don't know about any compression techniques and don't see anything related in the API documents.

Blogger

Sorry, folks--this chat tool doesn't let hot links come through.

Blogger

I FOUND NO COST INFORMATION IN SLIDES.

The prices are there for the kits in each day's slides. For today's slides: The Microchip Zena sniffer costs about $US 50.  The PICkit3 costs about $US 45.

Blogger

I second Ran's post - this week's presentations were well done and practical.

Jon:  Can the Microchip hardware be used to support the widely used WiFi or other wireless standards, and how hard is it to do (is there support software available)?

Yes, Microchip can support WiFi with a different PICtail card. Here's a link to more info: http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=1406&dDocName=en549227

Blogger

I FOUND NO COST INFORMATION IN SLIDES.

Iron

Answers (as others have said): Yes, Yes, and Not sure yet.

Excellent presentation, Thanks Jon.

Iron

Would like reviews of embedded SW Dev Tools

Iron

I've attended all of John's presentations. They are very good. Thanks

Iron

DOES THE KIT HAVE THE CONECTOR FOR THE ICD3?

 

Yes, it takes place via the USB connection to your host PC and via the ICSP pins on the MCU module.  It's an expensive device unless you need all its capabilities.

Blogger

Helpful - Yes

More - Yes

Others - not sure, so many to choose from. Perhaps a review of IDEs mfg, 3rd party and OpenSource?

Iron

The development kit reviews with the summary of likes/dislikes at the end are usefull.  I like ones combining a technology like RF. TI and Cypress reviews would be good.

I would like to see FPGA with soft micro as well.

Thanks again for great presentation.

Iron

Thanks Jon and Rob, didn't have to buy the kits to find out about them. Great sessions this week. See all tomorrow.

Iron

Helpful, Yes.  Would like to lkearn about FreeScale HS08.

Silver

More MCU reviews would be helpful

Iron

I would like to see more kit reviews, especially other ARM vendors like TI & ST.  Also some FPGA kits.

Iron

Thanks to both

BTW, none of my posts were dropped today

Iron

Jon:  Can the Microchip hardware be used to support the widely used WiFi or other wireless standards, and how hard is it to do (is there support software available)?

 

Microchip has a WiFi card: MRF24WB0MA Wi-Fi PICtail/PICtail Plus Daughter Board.  Search Goolde for microchip for wifi pictail.

Blogger

I've attended every week of the presentations since the beginning of this year, save 1 week.  This week, so far, has been the most practical of all of them.  I also feel that Jon did a superb job of presentation.  The photos were excellent, and the delivery was logical and easily followed.  Bravo and thanks to Jon and to Digikey.  If I may be so bold to speak for all the attendies over the past months, thank you very much Digikey and Design news.

 

WLYB?

:.)

Iron

I think these were very helpful.

I would like to see a review of other small µC like MSP430, Frescale RS08/S08, Renesas 78K, Zilog Z8,...

Iron

These reviews have been helpful by looking at the kits from different vendors. Since I have used only Microchip systems, this is a convenient way to learn how other vendors do things.

Iron

Helps get a broader view of available kits

Iron

These MCU development kits reviews are very helpful, as it gives us heads up info.

I would like to see the Freescale Tower kits reviews.

Iron

I'd like to see more of these, NXP and TI

Iron

Thank you so much!

Platinum

sure, other reviews would be interesting.

combo chips, FPGA + processor would be ideal.....

 

Reviews are helpful and may well serve for future reference as well.

I have used PIC and Atmel dev Kits as wells as TI and Xilinx.

Would love to see future reviews.

Iron

Thank you very much Jon and Rob as well as Digikey for these great sessions.

Iron

It is certaintly helpfull, I get some insites on the limitations of these dev boards. 

Iron

Yes, the Review Session(s) were helpful.

Yes, More Review Sessions would be helpful.

Other Kits? Not sure, Its helpful just to see what is out there.

 

Thanks for a great lecture!

 

Iron

Yes, helpful, other Cortex-M3 kits - TI, Freescale, NXP, ST

Iron

These were good.  It allows us to see some of the other systems that are available and how they worked and what they provide.

I would like to see more.

Keep up the good work.  Variety is good!

Iron

DEV KITS HELPFUL: yes

Iron

reviews of boards was very helpful. THANKS.

Thank you Jon and Rob 

Iron

Useful: Yes; More: Yes, please; I'd have to do some research to provide possible one to review.

Thanks Jon & Rob.

Iron

Yes. Very helpful. It saves research.

More Please.

Doing Low Freq. Noise research -- need something more powerful. M5CORTEX or better with Ethernet, A/D I2C etc.

Iron

Yes, I found them useful

Iron

yes, very helpfull to know features available in other develpment kits although I am stick to one for my work

Yes, these reviews are very helpful.  Yes, I'd like to see more of these just to see what's available out there.

Iron

These reviews are extreemly helpful.  I really do want to attend other sessions.  In fact if you had some lab to go to, I'd love it.

Platinum

I like the reviews - gives a good overview of different aproaches from different vendors.  I would like to see the BeagleBone reviewed as well as a 8051 kit and/or a MSP430 kit...

Iron

good progam, would like to see more, bye Jon

Iron

DOES THE KIT HAVE THE CONECTOR FOR THE ICD3?

Iron

Dev kit reviews are interesting. Nice to see features in kits from vendors that I am not familar with.

Iron

yes..these development kit review very useful and helpful. and Yes I would like to see more review sessions.

Iron

Thanks Jon and Rob. It is a good lecture.

Iron

Finally, what MCU families and development tools would like to see reviewed?

Blogger

1) Kit reviews were very helpful.

2) Would like to see more.

3) Any provider is interesting - this allows a good overview without having to meet with a vendor.

Iron

@JON/ROB: Cost information?

 
This kit cost $US 300.
Blogger

Would you like more reviews such as these?

Blogger

Thank you Jon for the presentation, thank you Rob and Digikey

 

Iron

Did you find these development kit reviews helpful?

Blogger

@Rob - found the dev kits reviews VERY helpful. Yes would want to attend more sessions. like to see comparison to Arduino kit

Iron

DEV KIT SECTION: I would like to see those which are already incorporating OSs

Iron

Yes, entire week was helpful!   Yes, sign me up for additional sessions!  :) 

@Rob: The development kit reviews were helpful. Some examples of customizing Eclipse for other MCU families would be interesting.

Iron

Jon:  Can the Microchip hardware be used to support the widely used WiFi or other wireless standards, and how hard is it to do (is there support software available)?

Iron

It is helpful!

Yes. I would like to see some comparative analysis.

Iron

This definitely helps to see what they have available as a support tool.

 

Iron

Yes useful, yes more please, NXP/Cypress.

Iron

Yes, they are very helpful!  Would also like to see globally unlicenced RF module reviews.  Thanks!

Iron
Yes, more reviews would be welcomed
Iron

Thank you Jon, another great lecture.

Iron
I think these reviews are greatly helpful
Iron

I USE  SAMPLE PROGRAMS UNTIL I UNDERSTAND HOW THE BOARD FUNCTIONS.

@JON/ROB: Cost information?

Iron

Does MiWi include excryption and compression that can be modified?

Platinum

what is the complexity to communicate to another node rather than another Microchip wireless system. that is communicating with a PC or internet web site?

Iron

use examples for initial understanding, then usually re-write

Iron

We're now on slide 35.

Blogger

SLIDE: Rather slide 34 NOT 32.

Iron

We're now on slide 34.

Blogger

We're now on slide 33.

Blogger

Code examples are generally good for getting something to run.  I can optimize later.

Iron

We're now on slide 32.

Blogger

Almost always take  a simple example program as a start for a new project unless I am pretty familiar with the system and it has a good wizard for generating the boilerplate code.

Iron

Mostly code examples save time.

Iron

WHERE TO START: It dfepends on the level of expertise: I may start from an example, every time I'm dealing with totally different field of knowledge. Esample: If I'm dealing with a problem involving permutations of a string, I may go find a C sample code that I ike and study.

Iron

Modify sample projects to understand hardware and software, get desired function. Start production software from blank project.

Iron

I have always used code examples as starting points, but I often digress far from the starting point.

Platinum

Always use code examples to start with.

Iron

i like code examples to get started, play with them, make small changes and then start clean when I have a good feel for the system.

Iron

We're now on slide 31.

Blogger

I do not use example code if I am familiar with target micro.  Otherwise yes it's a great place to start.

Iron

I usually start with a simple example project so it has all the settings correct and add my code to it.

always start with examples

Iron
Starting with examples allow someone to pick up the intricacies of the MCU a bit better than without them
Iron

@Rob - often start with code examples

Iron

For a new subject I use sample code as a start.

Iron

Create from scratch but refer to samples & examples, if need be.

I always use code examples to get started. It's the only way to know you're doing the right thing.

Iron

I use code examples whenever possible as a starting point.

Iron

I like to start with an example to get things started.

Iron

Use example projects to start all the time. 80% plus

Iron

start with code examples about half the time...

Iron

Definitely use code examples for prototypes - then I like to rewrite from scratch after initial dev

Iron

Code example is where I start.

Iron

yes, I start with code that is started.

 

Iron

sample code is often helpful as a start.

@Rob - yes code examples, when available, especially when eval

Iron

@Rob: often start with coding examples and then customize them.

Iron

Blogger

DOE'S THE API INCLUDE SOURCE CODE?

Iron

We're now on slide 28.

Blogger

Yes, sometimes thirt party tools help to solve the problem.

Iron

We're now on slide 27.

Blogger

Don't use 3rd party for demo kits, but have used when we select uC for products. Nice feature to select among various revisions of compilers. Easy to support legacy products and keep with original compiler.

Iron

Sometimes use 3rd party tools. Use CCS C compiler with older version of MPLAB. Have only played with MPLAB X & the free compiler so far.

Iron

We're now on slide 26.

Blogger

Sometimes we have to go out for a third party program, Normally it seems there is a disconnect between the Code Editor/compiler and the Programming/downloading tools.

Iron

Yes, I do, have to go to third party sites to make everything work.

Platinum

We're now on slide 25.

Blogger

Hi-Tech is owned by Microchip and you can download a functional version for free.

The Hi-Tech Pro is $1K and well optimize code (in my experience) to about 60% of the size of the standard.

Iron

Some third party programs offer code "treats" and examples not offered elsewhere.

sometimes i use a familiar 3rd party ide and compiler when getting started with a new system.

Iron

We're now on slide 24. 

Blogger

This free C compiler is no limtation?

 

Iron

Occasionally use 3rd party tools.

Iron

yes always 3rd party provide good code optimization

Was hoping this would have more on the Wireless Protocol

We're now on slide 23.

Iron

MaqzianLab -- Jon will be able to answer questions after the PPT presentaion.

Blogger

poor MPLAP behavior...needs to be corrected

Iron

I have modified Demo boards by adding power supply decoupling caps to lower P/S noise into the A/D converter.

Iron

Yes, I added some I/O devices and LCD.

Iron

We're now on slide 16.

Blogger

yes added header and input devices

Yes I have modified boards on occasion like a SPDT to select signal source, etc.

Iron

Yes, Added an fram, RTC chip from Ramtron to a zilog dev board.

Iron

I've disconnected some LCD pins in order to use them for additional IO as well as replaced sensors (photoresistors, etc) to test with different units

Iron

Yes & No.  No fixes, but I have added circuit to test something

Iron

yes, i've glued an extra header for access to i/o on a few development boards. also added a few more leds for monitoring.

Iron

Both Cypress, and NXP have prototypeing ares on some of thier eval boards. 

Iron

@rob - prefer not to modify demo boards until the eval is complete then it is just another component in the pile

Iron

I have made mods to get access to signals not brought out to headers.

Iron

We modify boards all the time.  Typical is to cut an on board function such as a pot or LED to be able to use that port.

Iron

typically don't mod, move on to our prototype design

Iron
no I haven't modified a board as of yet
Iron

We're now on slide 15.

Blogger

Jon, does this kit has temperature sensor as well?

Iron

@jl - the kit includes all the boards.  See slide 3.  It looks like you would need to buy a couple of kits (at least) for a base and a remote station.

Iron

@ebrown, I bleive it costs $299.

Iron

We're now on slide 14.

Blogger

WHAT KIND OF ADDRESS: is that one on the temperature display?

Iron

We have Looked into wireless projects for customer, We have one in the works right now
