I'm student working on a project at my university where I have to transmit a signal that I'm generating with a micro controller using a SmartALPHA RF Transceiver with a 433MHz signal. I have to receive this data and use it to plot a graph on the PC. Is it possible to capture this signal using the bluetooth from the computer? The original project used another SmartALPHA to receive it and transfer to the computer by serial port, but my professor modified it and asked for me to try doing it using only one.
One reason is getting the whip antenna for the bluetooth to accept such a "low frequency" signal requires hardware modification and re-tuning of the reception circuitry, since BT is 2.4GHz.
Another reason, even if you'd get the chip to accept the lower centre band frequency is that the encoding scheme and signalling bands on both protocols are vastly different, so it would make no sense at all to the chip that is hard-wired for BT.
