In march of 2015, MikroElektronika first announced full support for FTDI’s FT90x chips. MikroElektronika released the set of compilers: mikroC, mikroPascal and mikroBasic for FT90x. Along came the development boards: the EasyFT90x, we also added the Clicker2 for FT900. The circle was almost complete, until now: the mikromedia plus for FT900 is finally out! Now we […]
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 […]
Ever wonder how your oven keeps the temperature you set perfectly over time? PID ( Proportional, Integral, Derivative ) controllers can be used to regulate flow, temperature, pressure, level, and many other variables that need to maintain a value over time, with the least amount of error as possible. In this blog we will discuss how […]
There is a lot of different sensors for this kind of job. In this post we are going to present the new version of one of the most popular sensors for this kind of measurement. SHT click caries the new SHT3x-DIS by Sensirion. If you are not new to the embedded world, you probably know of […]
Each body with a temperature above the absolute zero emits an electromagnetic radiation, which is proportional to its intrinsic temperature. A part of this intrinsic radiation is infrared radiation, which can be used to measure a body’s temperature. The devices that measures infrared electromagnetic radiation and converts it to the temperature are so-called non-contact thermometers.
