Prototyping with the Alpha-TRX433S Transceiver

Introduction

In order to get the alpha modules fitting onto a bread board they had to be mounted to some kind of intermediary board which presented their pins at a standard pitch.

Using some solid wire and a strip board (proto board)  I created a mount for them.

Layout on Protoboard:

Channel cut in strip board between pins on either side:

Alpha Module Soldered in :

And the complete product with header pins attached:

This is now ready to be plugged straight into a bread board.

Total made: 2

    Hello !
    I have read your homepage about Arduino and ALPHA Transceiver usage. I am also working on connefting thes two parts electrically. You pictures of “Module Solderes” diagrams is not shown on your homepage, and it would be of werry helpfull to see how you have connected the two parts. Could you e-mail the drawings or upload them to you homepage ?

    Thanks for an informative homepage, it have helped me a lot.

    Best regards Jeppe

    Good afternoon!

    I’m trying a calefactor wireless controller with Arduino UNO and a SmartALPHA RF 433MHz transceiver and I’ve some problems.

    I cannot do work the example of VirtualWire client/server!!
    How I use the commans RTS and CTS??
    I’m getting crazy!

    Could you send me the photos to my email to see what I’m doing wrong?
    Maybe the code too?
    It’s not possible see the photos in the web.

    If it’s not possible, don’t care.
