There’s a new JeeLink coming…
No external connections, just a little antenna wire sticking out. Uses a 10 ppm crystal to accurately keep track of time and has 1 Mbyte of flash memory on-board so it can collect data in unattended mode. This new JeeLink’s only purpose is to attach to a computer for communicating with JeeNodes and several commercially available RF controlled devices (KAKU, FS20, etc). It has three LEDs: RX, TX, and ACTIVITY.
The above will be called the JeeLink (v2) – I’ve just sent off my second prototype to the pcb shop. Quite a few tweaks and tricks were needed to fit everything into such a tight enclosure:
The current JeeLink (v1) is also going to change. First of all, it’s going to be called the JeeNode USB (v2) in the next revision since it really is a JeeNode, but with the FTDI-USB adapter added-on. Other changes will be mostly to make the standard JeeNode and this new JeeNode USB even more compatible with each other.
