Book Description

Arduino being one of the most popular development platforms is widely used by hobbyists and professional developers for designing numerous measurement and control systems. Arduino boards may be fit into wireless systems using modern wireless technologies such as XBee, Wi–Fi and Bluetooth. It is possible, however, to build effective wireless systems using common and well-known radio frequency communication technologies.
This guide describes demo projects of simple wireless measurement systems operating within the FM broadcast band (88 to 108 MHz) and the ISM band in the range from 433.075 to 434.775 MHz. All projects are very simple and can be easily repeated and modified if needed. The simple source code accompanies every project as well. The FM band projects use several popular FM receiver kits including Elenco FM Radio Kit, DIY FM transmitters and the low-cost VMR6512 Hi-Fi FM Transmitter DIY Evaluation module. The detail explanation on how to assemble and tune FM transmitters and receivers can help the beginners to become familiar with the basics of RF circuit design. The projects describing wireless sensor circuits operating at 433 MHz are based upon using popular low-cost 433 MHz RF Transmitter and Receiver Link kits, although separate transmitter and receiver modules can be applied as well.
The guide also covers the development of PC-based wireless measurement systems using Arduino and the popular Software Defined Radio Receiver USB Stick RTL2832 w/R820T.

4.0 out of 5 stars One part how-to one part theory January 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
The invention of microcontroller development kits like Arduino has greatly simplified all sorts of control and recording function. Here the power of this open-source concept is applied to making radio frequency control and automation work.

RF engineering even at the simple level is a very complex subject. This book shows how to do RF comm projects about as simply as possible by harnessing the power and ease of use of the Arduino microcontroller project. By taking a bottom-up approach the author not only gets down to the nuts and bolts that the student or roboticist is looking for, but manages to simplify the subject about as much as possible.

A handbook of RF control communications for the Maker movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely RF DIY September 7, 2014
Verified Purchase
This was a bit different than what I expected, but still very happy. Not being a RF guy, this book opens up a whole new segment of electronics for me. I like the fact that Yury shows you how to make your own transmitter and receiver. This is like Heathkit and Radio Shack of old. Of course, he also discusses less DIY systems as well. Very good balance.

I love playing with arduinos and this just expands upon what can be accomplished or done with these very useful micro controllers

3.0 out of 5 stars too much emphasis on Rf circuits August 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
I was looking for modular ways to integrate RF into my Arduino projects and found this book had some good examples but too much emphasis was devoted to RD circuits that I could never build (I'm a hobbiest, not an engineer). It was helpful all the asme and I may use his examples if I can source the parts cheaply.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you have the time and interedt December 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this quite a while ago and just got around to reading it. I was expecting some, home-brew, plug and play options for immediate results. NOT!
Might be interesting to those who want to follow what the author is doing and build some analog FM circuits. Definitely not an XBee type solution to having a communication system working by the next day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tutorial for all May 5, 2014
I called this artical a tutorial because that is what I have been using it for. Yury has as ever given me insight into what I considered magic before reading his books. This review is more of a plug for Yury's writing and all of his books than just this book. If you have ever looked at wanting to employ RF coms in Arduino and did not know where to start; ie where do I start, how does it work, Yury sheds insight without bogging you down. His chapters are complete, you will be successful and at the same time you actually learn something about RF.
