For the tech geeks among us, the RC4Magic DMXi2c is a wireless DMX gateway to the Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Basic Stamp, PicAxe, and every microcontroller we know of (including products from Microchip, Atmel, Freescale, Texas Instruments, Rabbit, STMicro, and many many more).
To keep things simple, the DMXi2c connects to your hardware using the common I2C chip-to-chip communications protocol. We programmed the DMXi2c to appear as external read-only memory, so you can use readily-available programming functions that come bundled with most programming environments and languages. The first 512 memory addresses are the 512 channels of your wireless DMX universe. Simply poll the DMXi2c for up-to-date DMX channel levels whenever you need them, right along side the other Rc4Magic devices in your show.
We’ve shown it without a case, to emphasize that this device is intended for module-level and component-level electronics development. It comes in a little black enclosure that is the same size as our popular DMX2dim 2-channel dimmer.
