A sample text widget

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

XBee wireless programming of Arduino

Succeeded today in remote wireless programming a Funnel IO Arduino clone.

I had previously followed the instructions from LadyAda and got a very flaky program load – particularly with large files. Now following the Funnel IO route I have a reliable and solid way of remotely programming the board. I am using the Arduino IDE to upload the code. This also works well with direct use of avrdude.
The secret lies in the XBee configuration – this works for me.

Command Coordinator (i.e. a PC side) End device (i.e. a FIO side)
ATRE – Reset to defaults
ATBD 4 4
ATID 1234 1234
ATMY 0 1
ATDL FFFF 0
ATD3 3 5
ATIC 8
ATIU 0
ATIA FFFF
ATRR 3
ATRO 10 10
ATWR – Write the changes
ATCN – Exit command mode

I think the main difference from my first attempts lies in the destination address (ATDL). I will test further to see what is needed – also how well this works for other Arduino types.
