Programing code and Hardware: Like what I guess. I really stuck at the programing coding. It take me more time then the given. The given example code from the Sensirion cannot just implemented directly in the Energia . Example code from Arduino also not working in Energia it just show so many unclear error massage. Link to the sample code for the Sensirion sensor http://www.sensirion.com/en/products/humidity-temperature/download-center/. Example for the given sample code: I a ...
More Hardware and software update:   For hardware, PCB have been send for manufacture. Most of the component is ready for assembly. Now just waiting for PCB and some accessories. Picture show the final PCB send for manufacture.   Picture bellow show the pin map for the CC3200. Please edit the given example before upload to MCU. Do remember if you are using the 430 shapr96 LCD with CC3200, connector at the P1 and P2 is using by the LCD. Please avoid using pin function at this ...
CC3200 + 430BOOST-SHARP96 with Energia: In this chapter I will explain the CC3200, 430Boost-sharp96 and Energia. This should save lot of time with given code and example code for the existing hardware and software. I have try the BBB and BB View 4.3" with no success, not even power up the display to show something @.@ so give up that for now.   CC3200 come with pre install program. User can test and play around with the hardware and software. I will not talk about that here. All ...
Best view 1920 X 1200 CAM editing: Still editing the CAM file to make all hardware compatible with the PCB. Having some down side due to different pin location but still able to solve the issue. Just need to be careful when using this PCB due to non command sense routing . I hope nobody else will use this PCB, if not they sure hate me. Picture show the almost complete merge job with CC3200 header not align with the BBB header. Version 5 with solving all the issue for the me ...
Just coming back from Las Vegas, US. Sorry for no weekly update   Power Bank: Getting this power bank few day ago. It look quite solid and nice. Took me more then 7hour to fully charged this power bank with 2A 5V adapter. Look like the power indicated is correct for 10400mah capacity. This also mean the battery is original . Few reason for choosing this power bank for this project. First is their capacity with 10400mah it enough to run 2A 5V at lease 4hour. Second is the price with SG ...
(Best view 1920 x 1200) This chapter only discuss about PCB design and PCB prototype. Sorry guys have a bad cough and fever this weeks. Get an 4 days MC. PCB: Look like I need to have 2 design PCB for this project for now. Fan have a big internal cutout that may disturb the routing. This issue can easily fix if I just use one sensor for each hardware. For now still plan for two. Attached picture show the fan and dust sensor design PCB. PCB Prototype: For PCB prototy ...
(Best view 1920 x 1200)   This chapter I will share about PCB design.This PCB design in under progress. I will talk about the design, problem, solution and related issue. It simply straight forward since we have dedicated hardware and all the related component with no major changing. PCB EAGLE CADsoft V7.1 Eagle CADsoft V5.7 (look like very outdated he..he..) CAM editor Mechanical Drawing Box Part and Component Software Sharing:     PCB ...
(Best view still 1900 x 1200) In this chapter I will introduce some detail for the hardware (humidity and temperature sensor) and a little bit on software. Hardware: BBB and BB view: BBB BB View 4.3" SENSIRION EK-H5 & SHT75: Software: USB Sensor Viewer MSP 430 Software Platform IAR Energia CCS Hardware: Hardware is one of the important part for a device so I will try my best to go detail for this section. I have list down most of the hardwa ...
(Best view 1900 x 1200) This chapter I just sharing with all about component and sensor that plan to get.   I will develop hardware in parallel for BBB and CC3200. Both system have pros and cons for example the CC3200 have an build in WIFI which BBB don't have. But the main reason is because I not really strong in programing especially high level programing and Linux OS. So this will prepare me with two ready for programing hardware because at this stage I don't know which platform ...
In this chapter I am going to write about dust sensor. If you follow my project then you will know I plan to use Sharp GP2Y1010AU0F dust sensor. Again I will provide the information here in case someone is not read my previous chapter.   Link to Element 14 http://sg.element14.com/sharp/gp21010au0f/dust-sensor/dp/9707956?COM=IntheAirDesignChallenge   Link for datasheet http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/73805.pdf https://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Sensors/gp2y1010au_e.pdf   ...
R & D: Sensor, sensor, sensor and more sensor. Other already start with some sensor and testing but I still in progress looking for sensor . Maybe I should stop looking at other and just doing my own one he..he.. Looking for good and affordable sensor is not that easy and fun. First issue price, 2nd quality, 3rd interface and lease not last program. This all haven't included the accuracy, stability, lifespan and other.   After few research, I have choose this Sharp GP2Y1010AU0F dus ...
Project code     : Nanoimp. Objective          : Monitor and eliminate dust and particle in the air. Location           : Singapore (1.2971342,103.7777567,17). Time                 : 2160 hour. Target               : Complete syst ...
Hi all,   Just receive an email inform that I'm in for the in the air design challenge. Still cannot trust it, just start with what information given so far. This is my first time in challenge here. Thank in advance for all comment, suggestion, guide and help.   Try to organize everything to make it easy for other and my self.   But first I would like to thank to all sponsor and related person who have put a lot of effort and hard work to make this happen. Secondly I would ...
