Wireless sensor node - all on one breadboard (1)

Just a quick post to record the fact that I have now started to build my first wireless sensor node. The attached pics show the wired up circuit with space on the breadboard for 3 distinct circuits:

- Arduino ISP
- ATTiny wireless TX
- Arduino wireless RX

After a lot of fiddling I finally got my Manchester encoding library to build. Sadly when I tried to test my circuit I was only receiving a stream of zeros instead of the expected stream of digits counting up. Debugging that is the next step!

I will of course share the details once I get something working.

  1. Great job. What RF Module are you using?
    if you can, post a ebay link to buy it.
