Notify a remote receiver when a doorbell is pressed using the Wireless Doorbell solution featuring the Renesas RL78/G11 low pin and internally configurable analog microcontroller (MCU), RL78/G1H low power sub-GHz wireless communication MCU, and ISL80505 single-output low-dropout regulator.

Description

The Wireless Doorbell application uses sub-GHz wireless communication to notify a remote receiver when the doorbell is pressed. The transmitter and receiver both have a built-in RL78/G1H sub-GHz wireless communication module, RL78/G11 for control. When the transmitter button is pressed, its LED lights up and wireless communication starts. When the receiver receives a signal from the transmitter, its LED starts blinking and the speaker emits sounds. The wireless doorbell is suitable for use in the home or office.

The ISL80505 single-output low-dropout regulator (LDO) is used for receiver power management. The ISL80505 can supply up to 500mA output current at input from 1.8V to 6V, providing extremely stable voltage.

Key Features

  • Demo board includes the RL78/G11 and RL78/G1H MCUs
  • Users can hear the rings in any room where the receiver is placed
  • Operates in low power consumption mode, entering normal mode when an external interupt occurs (e.g., a key is pressed)
  • When a key is pressed, the wireless signals are transmitted to the receiver through the RF module
  • When the MCU detects that the battery power is low (<2.9V), the LED blinks for 5 seconds
