Education on MSP430 with bluetooth

by chart on Mon Apr 10, 2017 12:26 pm

Hello,

I am wondering on what to use for a 4 digit 7 segment LCD screen with Bluetooth to synchronize (2) screens at different distances away using different msp430. I want to be able to change a number at one screen and see the number change on the other screen and vise versa, to keep track of score. Please help me choose the best for a msp430? Would bluetooth be the best for this?
Thanks, Chris

Not very familiar with the MSP430. Bluetooth is a client/server architecture. Clients can't talk to each other - they can only talk to masters. Masters are usually computers or phones, not other microcontrollers.

Probably the simplest thing to use would be XBee radios. They can be set up as virtual serial ports.
