Because of the change-over of Windows7 buying new controlling devices is required, which do not support the handling of the remote control.

Have to be done during the task:

Analysis of the radioprotokol used by SmartControl remote control

Hardware-level analysis of the current interface

Designing and fabricating of the new Windows7-compatible hardware interface

Integration of the hardware into the softwareenvironment of the tester

Completion of a german and a hungarian users manual

The requirements for the candidate:

Good german

PCB design experience
