  1. Sorry, i updated thread, it was sold a while back. It is a great book, i am using it now pretty heavily. great intro to xbee....
  2. no (smartass), use your imagination and fill out the form. Free delivery from TI estore as always.
  3. Register for the http://innovation-worldcup.com/ and get 50% off CC2530 ZigBee Mini Kit, not a bad deal at $50 ! The mini will not handle the whole stack, but can be incorporated into other devices, ie LP with some hacking.... first codes sent today AM.
  4. i short metered both amps and volts before i hooked it up, i am assuming it must have a surge demand at the initalization. important to the efficiency/drain calculations for the battery. thanks
  5. fiddling about i was able to get it to work setting the supply at 6v, sorry to waste anyones time...
  6. just tried 4 aa's and it works that way :?
  7. it says dc 5v on unit and transformer....
  8. Hi Guys, I am trying with futility to run a wireless router off battery power. I picked up a LM2596 DC-DC Step down Adjust Power Supply Module and set it at constant 5volts from a 12V battery. I cannot get the device to boot. Any ideas? Is there some kind of frequency issue? thanks. KB
  9. Very Cool Marko, what kind of motors and battery are you using? thanks!
  10. in the last year i have fabbed a couple of simple pin out pcbs to plug into a breadoard. these mods come preprogrammed with the lsr firmware/software to play ping pong. works well out of the box. I have found the difficulty with the mod is zigbee. lots to learn here. ended up needing to get iar. please do infom if you have any success wth linux or ccs....
  11. I made a basic breakout board for the 20 pin rf connectors ti uses for rf. I have a surface mount and a through hole version if anyone is in need. They will work on the evalbot as well as the rf evk's.
  12. No Worries Dan, you seem to have thought it through adequately. Things are a little more complicated here, with city inspectors snooping around from time to time. I saw your expansion device, but i did not realize they could handle that type of pressure. It is just an excuse for inspectors here to hastle you for something... They also are sticklers for GFI's, even when closer than 2 feet to a kitchen sink! I just saw that potential moisture near your pump condom. Seems like your system works great. Yes I was speaking of antifreeze (PEG), they use it here allot to prevent disasters
  13. probably means he changed his mind to post. I have had that issue too... No way to back out easily
  14. Make shure you do the prototype dry-run with a doll Dont want any shaken baby syndrome :crazy:
  15. Congratulations! Not just another mouth to feed We are expecting one in Apr as well. I am relishing in my freedom until then
  16. this sounds like it may be too complicated. I set up git, and that was already a challenge for me... :roll:
  17. Thanks Larsie, Yes, it is an experimenter's board from TI : http://www.ti.com/tool/msp-exp430f5438 I am trying to work with zstack on it for wireless, but it only works with IAR, and I cant afford the $1500 license presently. I will try to work with the github idea, sounds pretty slick. KB
  18. I am wondering if this will solve my issue needing IAR, can I make binaries here for the f5438a? Is there a code size limit?
  19. Very noble endeavor GW, Congrats to both of you. I am not sure it is so bad to learn so young the challenge of science and the potential for failure. She is ahead of the game, albeit I am sure it cost you all some serious tears. I think it is great you are able to actively share in her learning process. In my mind, instilling a confidence at a young age is the challenge of being a parent. Knowing she can do anything she wants to do, to not expect immediate success, and break free of peer negativity will ensure her happiness in the years to come. I am hoping for similar experiences as
  20. After ten years of Mar Reds, I have quit. A couple years in Mexico and Florida, at a few bucks a pack didnt help. It was very satifying experience. I tried the mints, and they were great (gum tasted like sh&^). When I ran out I started to crave the nicotine, and I tried a couple of cigars. The expensive ones were a disapointment when I threw them out the window after five minutes. The cheap "owl" brand are the local fav for blunts, but they actually are pretty smoothe, and i didnt feel bad having one every day or so. Luckily I met a buddy, of angelic character. He has struggled wit
  21. Hi All, ended up with two copies of this book on accident. I enjoyed the opened one immediately, great author, lots of examples. I willl let it go for the $25 includes nnamerica shipping.... Building Wireless Sensor Networks by Robert Faludi (2011, Paperback), New
  22. I am still taking it in... My gut brainless thought now is that you should recon a used or secondhand expansion tank to eliminate the potential disaster you have forseen with the proximity to the pump. It would be a shame to lose that pump (they aint cheap) or get juiced. I hope you have a GFI inline.... Otherwise, I want one, but they are tricky when it snows here I would need to cycle water at night, and on cold days, or use PEG, much like a hot tub.... Still admiring your copper work! How expensive was all that copper?
  23. the reflow oven has a simple thermocouple board in the projects forum
  24. Ive been trying.... File structures confusing me, zstack has like ten folders on iar
