Wireless Data Logging System

The wireless data logging system (WDLS) is a development platform that enables for rapid prototyping. Features include:

  • single self-contained board with small form factor (2.6" x 2.6")
  • supports most PIC24, dsPIC33 and PIC32 controllers in 28-pin DIP package
  • socketed MCU allows for easy replacement of PIC
  • demo programs which exercise all capabilities (listed below) are available, with full source code
  • on-board Bluetooth radio and antenna
  • microSD card (up to 32GB) socket, fully compatible with Microchip's flash file storage libraries (MDD-FS)
  • 2 LEDs and 3 switches for general use
  • power and reset switches on board
  • powered from batteries (2x AAA) on back of board
  • can also be powered from an external 1.0V to 3.3V battery source
  • can be powered by an externally regulated 3.3V power source
  • onboard programming with PICkit interface
  • header pins can be added giving access to all processor signals when plugged into a standard solderless breadboard
  • alternatively, header pins can be added giving access to all processor signals by a plug-in daughter board
  • includes technical documentation
