PIC to Arduino Wireless Communication via XBee

Posted January 10, 2013 by Chris

“ In this article, we will use a PIC 18LF4520 and an Arduino UNO to build a transmitter and receiver using some wireless modules. The PIC will output serial commands as a transmitter that tell the Arduino system to pause an LCD screen from updating a counter value. This project is intentionally designed to be simple because there are many simple ideas at play and it’s important for you to understand each one.”

    Hmmm – generally quite informative, but two things jumped out at me on the first pass.
    Please credit the source of your screen-grabs… and seven-bit serial ASCII (in the graphical bit explanation) is relatively rare, and may confuse newbies that are trying to squeeze 0xFF into seven bits.
