In my previous blog post  I showed how I started to build a “code learner" for infrared remote controls that I would then implement in my brainwaves appliance controller project.  This way users can “teach” the brainwaves appliance controller the specific codes needed to turn on/off their television sets, to change channels, and to turn the volume up and down.   The first step was to measure the infrared carrier frequency, which typically has values between ...
This is an update to the Henrietta Project, which was a design entry in the Smarter Life Design Challenge sponsored by Cypress Semiconductor and Element 14. The Henrietta Project was a smart thermostat with a variety of interfaces and features intended to showcase the capabilities of Cypress Semiconductor's PSoC4 and PSoC Creator development environment. This update is showing a spin-off from the Henrietta Project where the main feature is a GPS-based clock. It still retains Bluetooth capability ...
I thought building a “code learner" for infrared remote controls is an easy job; well, it is not.  I started by constructing a code learner function in my brainwave appliance controller project that I built using the PSoC5LP  as I described in my previous blog post.  That project uses a PSoC5LP on a Schmartboard, which is a small evaluation board very self-contained, comes with a boot loader application, and has almost all I/O pins routed to connectors.  I really like t ...
