[otw_is sidebar=otw-sidebar-1]In this post I will discuss about the Bluetooth technology and the simulation of the Bluetooth Module Simulation in Proteus. In the previous posts I have discussed the simulation of important sensors and actuators in Proteus. This post will be oriented around the discussion on the Bluetooth technology and its simulation in Proteus. In one my posts I have discussed the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) technology which is the wireless communication standard thus in the similar the reader will be able to see the Bluetooth wireless technology and be able to differentiate among different wireless technologies
Bluetooth Module Simulation in Proteus:
After we have learned the basics of the Bluetooth technology and Bluetooth module let us now simulate the behavior of the Bluetooth module in Proteus. It is important here to mention that it is always beneficial to simulate the system before actually implementing the Hardware of the system itself. With the help of simulation the embedded system designer can look for the glitches in the coding of the controller and error in the circuit. Thus it can save both the time and money. It is important here to note that if you want to simulate the behavior of the circuit it is important that the simulation models of all of the components used in the circuit should be available in the library of the software. Without the simulation model the software will be unable to imitate the behavior of the circuit.
Bluetooth Module hc05 Library in Proteus:
he simulation model compliance the information of the way the electronic component behaves so it is important that the simulation model should be available in the library of the software. The simulation model of the Bluetooth module is not available in the library of the Proteus by default so we need to download the files that contain the simulation model of the Bluetooth module. After downloading the simulation model files you need to place these files in the library of the Proteus. If you do not about how to place the simulation model files in the library of the Proteus please go through my post on Ultrasonic sensor there I have discussed the method of placing the files in the Proteus library. After you have successfully placed the files it is now time to design the hardware. Follow the following simple steps in order to design the Bluetooth system in Proteus.
Place all the components that are to be used in the circuit in the workspace of the Proteus.
Configure the circuit as shown in the following figure:
The design is quite straightforward and is self-explanatory.
Attach the HEX file of the code of the Arduino as shown in the following figure:
If you do not know how to obtain the HEX file of the code written in the Arduino Integrated Development Environment go through my post on Ultrasonic sensor I have discussed there in detail.
After uploading the hex file hit the simulation button and the simulation will start.
Bluetooth Module Library for Proteus Simulation
That is all for now I hope this post will be helpful for you. In the next post I will come up with more interesting applications of Proteus and Engineering topics. Till then stay connected, keep reading and enjoy learning.
