Designing a wireless jogger
« on: January 27, 2006, 06:11:20 PM »
Hi,I'm slowly working on a wireless,'keyfob' jogger which so many times I found myself in need of for various reasons.After much consternation about whether I waste a perfectly capable microprocessor on just doing the receiver section and use a keyboard emulator in conjunction,I've decided to bite the bullet and be efficient(not with my time of course) and do the keyboard emulation as well, with the receiver's micro...'IF' I can find out in a 'jogging' scenario there is any possibility of the computer having to send data to the keyboard.I've never really cared to do any projects that involve PC keyboards so I am only now considering that the keyboard on a PC is bi-directional.Anyone know if I'll be needing a 'two-way' conversation? If there is this need/possibility then I will use one of the existing keyboard emulators but if I only need to 'send',I could rationalize designing the whole kit and kaboodle.Thanks,Keith
