Testing #VSCP #Accra #IoT #m2m

Time to test Accra and to finish the code in this new module.  The manual and the MDF is done (probably not final though) but if you are curious they are  possible to check out now.

Kilafors will be a companion module to Accra for meter interfacing such as an electric meter that have an IR-led.  With this module it is possible to get KWh measurement VSCP events just with some simple configuration of the Accra. No other coding needed.


Hardware work take much longer than one expect.  We did know that when we started. Support and software takes time also.  So at the moment  we are quite a bit behind schedule.  Some more modules are ready and designed and is just waiting  to be tested and get code.  Listed here for reference so you know what is coming this fall.

Vilnius is a general A/D module. Hopefully we see this in August together with Accra.

Kelvin 1-Wire is a temperature module that can use the popular DS18B20 sensor instead of a NTC sensor but otherwise have the same functionality as the Kelvin NTC module.

San Fransisco is a Barometer module.

Frankfurt Bluetooth is a BLE 4.0 interface that can be used to connect a cell phone or other Bluetooth device to a CAN4VSCP bus.  This can be useful for diagnostics and configuration of a setup that is otherwise self contained, possibly for security reasons.

Roma 802.15.4 is a  module that have 802.15.4 and can connect CAN4VSCP segments with each other and connect some upcoming modules.

Roma 433 is a 433 MHz received/transmitter  and can interface low cost 433 MHz equipment such as popular wall switches and temperature sensors.

Blitz which is a wifi interface to CAN4VSCP. This module also have a 433 transmitter and some more goodies.

That is what we have in the pipe. What we currently have components and boards for. But expect a lot of other things this fall from the Paradise of the Frog.

Other planed modules.

A gprs module that can be used for alarm and status and control sms is already available in our lab. This module can also be used to send and receive emails to get status from and control VSCP modules.  Hopefully we will see this module in the Frogshop this fall.

A module we have had on the bench for several years now is Zeus.  This is a module same as Odessa and with the same expansion interface but with Ethernet instead of a CAN4VSCP bus.

A simple low cost CAN4VSCP <-> wifi module is also in the pipe.

When we have the infrastructure in place with CAN4VSCP based, wifi-based i/f , ethernet i/f we will put all our efforts on our VSCP based Bumblebeez modules which are wireless low cost modules with a lot of exciting functionality. This means that we have VSCP connectivity over the most common transport mediums available and that they are possible to connect in a plug and play way.
