Introduction: Hi everyone, this is my final project demonstration of "Smart Farming Hoe". Checkout my earlier blogs [Blog1 , Blog2 , Blog3, Blog4, Blog5, Blog6, Blog7, Blog8, Blog9 ] from unboxing to product prototype design. This blog explains about the overall design concepts and how it works.   Smart farming Hoe: The problem what i see in today's world is "Farmers" count is decrementing day by day. Since I'm from the background of agriculture family i had seen what are the problems ...
Hi All, In the previous blog8 i have integrate the Eink display with XMC4200 and in this blog I'm going to do final integration for "Smart Hoe" Integrating Eink Display: Eink display project changes are brought into our main code. I want to display the light or motor status on the EPD screen.I m able to write the text string using below code eink154_setFont( &guiFont_Tahoma_14_Regular[0], _EINK154_SCREEN_COLOR_WHITE, _EINK154_FO_HORIZONTAL); eink154_text("Light ON", 8,40,80) But unfortu ...
Hi All, In the previous blog7  i have finalized the setup and in this blog I'm going to add Eink display to the XMC4200. The Eink display ( eINK Click board ) i have got from the Mikroe and i'm using the 1.5Inch EPD display.   SPI Interface: The EPD is interfaced to our XMC4200 with SPI interface. The board has an Mikroe slots we need to insert the module.   Pin Details: #define EPD_RST      P2_7 #define CS        ...
Hi All, In the previous blog6 mesh kits are interfaced with XMC4200 and tested. And here we are going to do some improvements accounting to the final application "smart hue". Earlier the DC motor was run by H-Bridge shield board and now i have used High Side switch to turn ON.OFF for simplicity and to achieve higher power.   Smart Hoe Setup: The final setup will look like below, DC pump and LED lights are driven by the PROFIT +2 12V switch, Mesh kit is interfaced with XMC4200 Platf ...
Hi All, In the previous blog5 we have successfully brought the wireless communication between two mesh kits . And here we are going to interface the MESH kit to XMC4200 via UART communication. UART Interface: UART example project is found under XMC4300 ->  XMC_Peripheral_Library_v2.1.24\XMCLib\examples\XMC4500_series We use the project (UART_TRANSMIT_RECEIVE_FIFO_INTERRUPTS) as a reference to port into XMC4200. Key changes are baudrate value and PIN numbers   #define UART_TX ...
In the previous blog4 i have explained about interfacing of the PROFET+2 12V High side switches with XMC2000 Kit to drive a LED Lights. In this blog we going to bring up the wireless communication using BLE Mesh network.   If you are new to MESH, Its good to start from this App note found here (cypress) I'm using two CYBT-213043-MESH kits to create mesh networks and sending data between them. MESH has different models for lights , sensors etc. In this project I'm using a vendor model wh ...
Hi All, In the previous blog3 i have explained about interfacing of the H-bridge shield board with XMC2000 Kit to drive DC Motor. In this blog we going to interface the infineon High Switches (PROFET+2_12V SHIELD)   The High current Profit boards have 4 high side Outputs which is capable of driving 20A current. Datasheet is here In my case I have stacked this shield on top of the TLE94112L shield. the setup looks like below   Control the Outputs: Its very simple to control the ...
Hi All, In the previous blog2 we have created the GPIO example with LED blinking demo for XMC4200. In this blog we going to interfacing TLE94112El H-Bridge driver with XMC4200.   Take a look into TLE94112 user manual , It has 12 half bridge outputs , can be configured as LOW or HIGH or HZ. each output drives the maximum of 900mA current. for more details look read the UM.   Requirements: In our case we are going to drive a 12V DC motor pump. The Motor is rated to 350mA. we going ...
Hi All, In this blog , I'm going to explain about programing the XMC4200_Platform2Go board.   There are the software and docs required, it can be download from infineon website: DAVE IDE 4.x XMC Peripheral Library XMC4200_Platorm2Go User manual I'm not going to repeat UM contents here so please check UM for pin connection and board signals. here is the Schematic view of the board:     Setting up the Example:   At 1st step download and install the DAVE IDE on you ...
Hi All, Hope we are all doing good, Its very glad to be part in this contest. My target would be getting some trees in my name "Ashok's Tree" I received my kits on last week and thought to unbox all the kits in-front of you all. Total 6 kits including the pressure & 3D magnetic sensor. Kits boxes are quarantined for 3 days & sanitized before unboxing.   Even though my application is "Smart Hoe" but after seeing the kits features, i am slightly going to change in my concept.  ...
