Application note: Using the applied digital ocelot as an ir blaster, receiver, and lighting control instrument all in one simple unit.
The ocelot can be programmed to convert serial port commands to IR commands and X10 lighting control commands. Furthermore, the ocelot can be programmed to transfer received ir commands to serial commands.
Also, since the ocelot uses standard RS232 signalling it can be connected to the PC using a usb to serial adapter.
I will be adding sample code to help setup this system shortly.
The ocelot is available on the Special Order page for $199 and typically ships in less than 1 week. Custom programming is also available.
