The Virtual Wire Library

In one of my projects I needed an inexpensive but reliable RF link over which I could send a few bytes of data. A popular and inexpensive transmitter and receiver is available on the 433 MHz frequency band using Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK). The challenge was to set up a reliable link using these devices.

JALPIC One Development Board

In order to make JAL programming easy without the need of a programmer, the JALPIC One development board was created. This board has the same type of connectors as the Arduino Uno and the connections are - where possible - the same as the Arduino Uno.

Using the ESP8266 with a PIC to create your IoT device.

Recently I created a library with the name 'esp8266.jal' for connecting a PIC to your WiFi. The library is based on an ESP8266 ESP12-F and it based on version 2.0.0 of the ESP8266 AT command set.
The ESP8266 interfaces with the PIC using a UART.
