    Hello!

    The easiest way: don't develop anything. Use an existing Bluetooth or Zigbee transmitter and you're on air.

    so I put bluetooth or zigbee transmitter into window xp for communicating with 18F4550 ?
    do you have reference for window c code ( window application ) that can read from bluetooth or zigbee ?

    Thanks

    Are you intending wireless communication? A simple USB connection (e.g. CDC or HID) would be the "natural" choice with a 4550, not mentioning legacy RS232.

    I would try google...

    In fact, if you don't tell us the whole story, it's very difficult to help you.
    You can within minutes write an application that sends bytes using Bluetooth and receive these bytes
    on your favorite PC or Mac or Linux.
    Now, what bit rate do you need? Do you need flow control? Do you want to catch and store raw data
    or do you want to display it in real time, etc, etc...

    the exact spec, I can not see yet but I need to create and sound processor which connected to windowXP and prossed the voice in OS, I think I'm gonna need a device driver, don't you think so, do you have the link for them ?

    that's good idea, but abit pricy.

    Does someone have an experience in writing a code for device driver ? I have a look already on Window Device Driver Kit and try to learn now, who knows someone has a better experience, and can share abit of knowledge about it, thanks in advance.

    The idea is very simple first, create a driver that connect to my application in window and I can control LED on and off on board via USB...

    PIC USB programming examples including the PC side can be e.g. found in the Michrochip Application Library, also in programming examples from compiler vendors.

    Bianchi sorry I realy dont understand how do you mean interface will be on USB. On circuit PIC18F4550 use USB port. Both examples are for USB.

    Re: How to develope a device driver for windowXP ?

    Hello!


    the exact spec, I can not see yet but I need to create and sound processor which
    connected to windowXP and prossed the voice in OS, I think I'm gonna need a device
    driver, don't you think so, do you have the link for them ?
    Process the voice in which OS? Windows or an OS on your MCU board?
    What kind of processing? How many channels? What sample rate?
    If you process sound on your PC, then you need a plain interface to send audio
    data to windows, am I right?

    Does someone have an experience in writing a code for device driver ? I have a look
    already on Window Device Driver Kit and try to learn now, who knows someone has a better
    experience, and can share abit of knowledge about it, thanks in advance.
    I do (my job consists for 50% in writing drivers, the rest being applications and
    hardware). When I start using a new kind of driver I have never used before (for
    example when I started with USB), I first find a reference design. It is available
    from all the MCU makers, I guess. They want to sell MCUs, and helping developers
    will yield more MCUs sold, so they usually help you. You should go to your favourite
    processor maker's site and try to get sample code.

    Now concerning the link you posted. You have 6 analog inputs. Do you want to use
    them all? In this case, I guess the bottleneck will be your chip.

    Dora.
