Hi - I was just wondering, what have people here done with giving AVRs RF communication abilities? I am currently working on a fairly basic system using some simple Laipac RF transmitters and receivers and Holtek encoders and decoders to remotely turn on/off the runway lights to my house.
It got me thinking though - what kinds of rf communication are fairly easy to implement with AVRs? I mean one could certainly use the Laipac and Holtek parts that I used to give an AVR 4 bit communication (the Holtek chips only send 4 bits at a time) - but also I would think that one could use an AVR to do the encoding and decoding, and skip the Holtek devices altogether.
So - what RF solutions have you all used? And has anyone coded a encoder/decoder for an AVR? And has anybody implemented a more complicated RF protocol - such as bluetooth or zigbee?
Thanks for your thoughts!
