ESP8266 ESP-12 WiFi Module
ESP8266 ESP-12 WiFi Module

ESP8266 is an IC that delivers a true revolution in the world of makers, especially in the world of IoT (Internet of Things). This is a complete 32-bit SoC (System on Chip) with built-in flash memory, frame and EEPROM which can even be programmed directly from the Arduino interface, without the need for additional micro-controller. With all this, the most important point is that in itself has a built-in WiFi (AP, STA, AP + STA), all that for “little money”.

ESP8266 in this form (ESP-12) is suitable for direct soldering to a printed circuit board as an SMD component or directly solder the wires since the pin has its holes. It also comes with a PCB trace antenna.


 

Note: ESP8266 is an IC that works at 3.3V! Connecting directly to 5V, or track Arduino or Croduino plate will destroy it! Use logic level converter.

 

433MHz RF transmitter and receiver

RF transmitter and receiver is a high-quality combination for RF communication between two devices (eg. Dasduino) often used for remote controlling or wireless communication.

Logic level converter board
Logic level converter board

This logic level converter board module gives us a translation of logic level between two signals. In layman’s terms, if we take a signal with logical “unit” on 5V convert into a signal which logical “unit” has on 3.3V this module will help us. Something like this is useful in this case if we want to achieve communication between two devices from whom one works on 5V and the other on 3.3V, or any other combination of voltages. Directly connecting we would “burn” a device that works on 3.3V and a module gives us to avoid that.

RS-232 transciever breakout

The RS-232 is a standard and very popular protocol for communication between two devices. It is a full-duplex protocol which means it can receive and send data at the same time, and data is sent at voltages from + 3V to + 15V for a digital “one” and from -3V to -15V for digital “zero”. This provides a more secure environment for data transmission which is resistant to noise or interference, which is why the RS-232 is often used in industry. This module converts serial communication to RS232.

I2C multiplexer TCA9548A breakout
I2C multiplexer TCA9548A breakout

Have you ever found yourself wanting to connect more than one I2C device to a single controller and couldn’t because they have identical I2C addresses? There you have it, I2C multiplexer (I2C MUX) allows you to use up to 8 devices with the same address on the same bus! If we mention that TCA9548A, the IC on which this breakout is based, has three adjustable pins for the I2C address, which means a total of 8 possible addresses. We can reach 64 devices with the same address on the same bus. For example, it is possible to connect 64 BME680 sensors that are read by only one microcontroller.

 

This adapter is particularly practical because it enables multiplexing of easyC devices.

USB-UART CH340 converter board
USB-UART CH340 converter board

This small USBUART adapter converts USB communication into UART (serial) communication, and everything you might need is already on this small board. In addition to the classic UART pins that are arranged in the standard layout: DTR, RXD, TXD, VCC, CTS, GND, other pins available of the CH340 chip are also available on header: RS232, RI, DCD, DSR, RST and CTS. Indication LEDs show activity on RXT and TXD lines, and a 500mA fuse protects this programmer, the USB port of the computer that is connected, and other devices connected to it from damage.

Additionally, there is a voltage regulator and a switch on the board, and it is possible to choose the output voltage of 3.3V or 5V, depending on the device you are using. The logic of the UART signal is always 3.3V, but don’t worry, 5V devices will work with 3V3 UART logic without any problems. Use a USB-C cable to connect.

LIN Transceiver NCV7329 breakout
LIN Transceiver NCV7329 breakout

LIN (Local Interconnect Network) is a serial network protocol used for communication between components in cars. The LIN bus is an alternative to the CAN bus, and the difference is that LIN has a lower speed and supports a smaller number of simultaneous devices, but also has drastically lower costs. LIN is used for communication between microcontrollers. The operating voltage is 18V.

 

Master/Slave is a communication model where one device (Master) controls one or more devices (Slave), and the Slave then listens to the commands it receives from the Master. One Master on the LIN protocol can control up to 16 devices.
