I want to use the Parallax 433 MHz RF Receiver (#27981) with the Propeller Demo Board. http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/burger.gif
Somebody has suggested to me to use some standard serial object for communications, but I do not find examples written in Spin.

Also I have tried to emulate then SERIN BS2 command using the “BS2 Functions” object but I’m not able to optimize that code to use only SERIN command (still I do not “dance” well with the SPIN).

Somebody has written something in SPIN to receive data with the RF Receiver?

Thanks

To use the 433 with the propeller, you should be able to use either the SEROUT/SERIN methods in BS2_Functions or use the FullDuplexSerial library, simply assign the right pins for TX/RX.

The 433 operates of 5VDC so you need to do something to the output before you feed it to the Prop.

I apologize for the imcomplete answer on this, will you be transmitting data from the propeller, or receiving it, or both?

Ok, I will try to use again the SEROUT/SERIN methods in BS2_Functions; I will be only receiving data from the propeller.

Thanks
