Wireless Module Implementation

Recommended Posts

Hi!!! I'm currently working on a software/hardware project where my team and I are developing a device that's basically an LCD display monitor that will display information gathered from a wireless network. Half of the team is working on the database and website and my assignment is to work with the wireless module. The project's hardware is basically the lcd screen, some push buttons we're installing for user interactivity, a microcontroller and it's development kit (module = MSP430 F449) and the wireless module (WLNG-AN-DP101-G)

now, i have NO IDEA and NO KNOWLEDGE about wireless modules and how are these implemented... My collegues don't really know much either about it given that our college sucks... so we're basically on our own.

This is basically a call for help to anyone that's willing to help me or at least guide me or point me in the right direction. like i said, i know nothing of this, so how do i program this wireless module or install it? how do i make it work with the micro controller and the server? I've read the data sheets of the module and searched the net all over yet I'm in a hole and i really don't know what to do... someone help!!! thanks!

Your delima is why the company I work for is in buisness. I work for the Telematics (formally Wireless Systems) division of Laird Technology. Our modules come in 900MHz and 2.4GHz and in a variety of power levels. We have a development kit that comes with 2 develoment boards with link our radio to the PC. Please check out http://www.lairdtech.com/pages/products/proprietary.asp for a description of our stuff. These are made to let developers with no knowledge of RF, use a wireless device already FCC approved, in their application. Many of our customers use our products for updating scoreboards (like in high school gym's, baseball fields etc.,) If you have any detailed questions, I'll put you in touch with someone, (since I'm just a lowely engineer here).

Thanks,

Dan
