Microcontrollers have a Heart too

7 Sep , 2016  

Heart rate sensors are an interesting way to use IR LEDs (Infared Light-Emitting Diodes) and photo diodes to find a hearts’ pulse. Amazingly, the intensity of light received through the photo diode is actually different depending on how much blood is in your arteries. In this blog we will cover a photodiode’s basic operation, and how […]

MCP2003B Click – Implement the LIN protocol

20 Jul , 2016  

LIN, short for Local Interconnect Network, is a network protocol used in serial communication between different components inside of vehicles. “Wait, isn’t CAN used in vehicles?” yes, somewhere, but implementing CAN protocol between all the components of a car turned out to be too expensive for manufacturers, so an agreement had to be made. Most […]

Visual TFT – Part 2: Events, buttons, check boxes

24 Jun , 2016  

Last time we talked about Visual TFT, we went over the basics: we created a project, configured our project settings, and played with the basic components (boxes, circles, lines and labels). That’s all fine and well, but the current project is not interactive with the end user. So what if we want to add a couple […]

Visual TFT – Part 1: Make a GUI in the blink of an eye

17 Jun , 2016  

Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) has been one of the revolution points in computer science. Transitioning from punched cards to terminal, from terminal to full colored screen with drag-and-drop capabilities, engineers have made it easy to start and and end programs with simple clicking. The same is going on in the micro world of embedded programming: […]

MEMS Sensors: Conversion of the Physical World to the Digital World

26 May , 2016  

MEMS sensors or Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems are the sensors and actuators at the bare metal of embedded systems. MEMS are used for airbag systems, automatic door locks, security systems , earthquake detection, inkjet printers, kitchen appliances, and of course computer peripherals. In this blog we will explore the different ways you can use MEMS sensors. We […]

This NAND, NOR that NAND

18 May , 2016  

Flash memory is the new normal, but it is a misunderstood technology when it comes to how the memory works. We are going to shed some new light on an old idea and hopefully expand your understanding of what makes for a read and write. Introduction When memory first arrived on the scene, a few […]

Bluetooth Low Energy – Part 3: BLE 2 Click

13 May , 2016  

In the first part of this 3-part series, I gave a brief introduction to the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol. We went over how the messages look like, what the different layers of communication are, and what communication is BLE best suited for. Then, in the second part, I made a tutorial for working with the […]

Industrial Solution for all that Pressures You

12 May , 2016  

In industrial applications, having accurate pressures becomes a critical thing. The issue becomes all to real when your chemical reactor goes a few pounds over the desired, pressure gets too low in your robotic actuator, or pneumatic braking is lost due to lack of force. What is needed in these situations is not only an […]

EnOcean – Energy Harvesting Wireless Solution

6 May , 2016  

When it comes to embedded development, radios are something which is often highly complex and difficult to master. There is a whole ocean of requests and responses, definitions and setups, a two digit number of source files, just to get a byte transferred over the air, for starters. Over the years, a lot of radio protocols […]

Make Your Robot Speak – Text to Speech

28 Apr , 2016  

Speech synthesis – production of the human voice from non human objects. It’s one of the more popular developments through computer history is the reproduction of the human sound. The basic idea starts in 18th century when Russian professor Christian Kratzenstein created an apparatus based on the human vocal tract to demonstrate the physiological differences involved in […]
