Send/Receive data using BLE and MBED | BBC Microbit

BLE Microbit

This video is all about sending and receiving data between BBC Microbit and any BLE enabled smart phone. Over here I have used C/C++ (MBED) as the programming language as other language (Python/JavaScript) don’t support UART data transfer service.

Getting started with ESP8266 | AT Commands

Connecting the ESP8266 Wi-Fi module to PC and trying out some AT Commands.The ESP8266 is a low-cost Wi-Fi chip with full TCP/IP stack and microcontroller capability produced by Shanghai-based Chinese manufacturer, Espressif Systems. The chip first came to the attention of western makers in August 2014 with the ESP-01 module, made by a third-party manufacturer, AI-Thinker. This small module allows microcontrollers to connect to a Wi-Fi network and make simple TCP/IP connections using Hayes-style commands. However, at the time there was almost no English-language documentation on the chip and the…
