Ben Heck’s essentials series: Wireless communications
Karen is really wired, and this time we don’t just mean hyperactive. Ben, Karen and Felix get together to talk about the essentials of wireless technology. There are many different ways for electronics to communicate information, including WiFi, xBee, Bluetooth, mobile networks, RFID and NFC — and in this episode the team discusses them all. The gang appraises each technology, assessing the pros and cons, with an insight into their radio frequencies, as well as the bandwidth they use per FCC regulations. What projects or hardware do you wish were wireless? Or do you have an interest in Software Defined Radio or Amateur Ham? Let The Ben Heck Show team know over on the element14 Community.
