Microchip SAMA5D27 SOM1 System-On-Module contains the 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-A5 processor-based MPU SAMA5D27 and 1Gb DDR2 SDRAM running up to 500MHz. It greatly simplifies design by integrating the power management, non-volatile boot memory, Ethernet PHY and high-speed lower power DDR2 memory onto a small, single-sided PCB. Certified for industrial operating conditions over a -40˚C to 85°C temperature range, application use includes motor control, HMI and other industrial applications.

Remember the famous show ‘White Collar’ where they use face restructuring to recognize a felon who used plastic surgery to hide his real identity. Or the Bourne Trilogy where they used facial recognition on every step to catch Jason Bourne. Fascinating, isn’t it? The concept has now moved out of reel world and is finally becoming a part of real mainstream life. Right from Amazon’s Rekognition to iPhone X’s Face ID technology, this one has been a deal maker everywhere. 

 

FPGA Vs Microcontrollers - Another Approach to Embedded Design

Submitted By:

Most engineers start their journey in embedded systems with microcontrollers. With microcontrollers, one gets a complete miniature computing system on a single integrated circuit. The CPU, RAM, ROM and Input / Output peripherals all on a single thumb size SoC. This very popular approach to learning embedded design and development is in fact just the one side of the complete picture. Working with microcontrollers (and microprocessors) is all about software-based embedded design.

Logic Gate Implementation of Arithmetic Circuits - DE Part 11

In the previous tutorial, the basic combinational arithmetic circuits like half adder, full adder, half subtractor and full subtractor were discussed in details. Now, in this tutorial, the truth table and derivation of the boolean expressions for all those circuits will be considered. With the derived boolean expressions, all those circuits will be practically designed using digital ICs.

Photon Based Smart IoT Socket and Energy Monitor Circuit In this project, a smart socket is designed which can be automatically switched using a relay. The socket is interfaced to a Particle Photon based IoT device which keeps track of energy consumption using ACS 712 Current sensor and help automatically disconnect socket connection with the Mains when the power consumption by a device exceeds a threshold value. The Photon also remains connected to a web server via Wi-Fi hotspot and keeps updating the energy consumption data to the server.

ESP8266 IoT Weather StationThe IoT device designed here is a weather station built by interfacing a character LCD with the ESP8266 board. The device fetches the weather data of the location it is installed and display it on the LCD screen. It must be noted that there are no sensors used in this device and the device gets the weather data from an IoT platform i.e. Open Weather Map. The device fetches temperature and precipitation information using API keys and display it on the LCD.

Arduino and ESP8266 based IoT Vehicle Tracking Device CircuitThe vehicle tracking systems are designed for tracking the movement of a vehicle from a location at any time. Such system is equipped with a GPS receiver which maintains the GPS location of the device. The GPS location of the device traced by the GPS sensor is sent to a cloud server or cloud service with the help of a controller. This project is a simple implementation of such system on one of the most popular prototyping boards - Arduino UNO.
