Arduino and ESP8266 based IoT Vehicle Tracking Device Circuit The 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. 

 

10 Biggest Solar Projects In The World?

Engineers Garage

The first thing that erupts in mind is how many? Yes, there are many in fact plenty to fulfill considerable part of global energy demands. But we will only be discussing the most important ones here. Since renewable energy is no longer a niche technology, almost all small and big nations around the world have embarked on a race to impress the world with most spectacular solar energy projects of all types and let everyone know about their true potential.

 

Building 4-Bit Magnitude Comparator Using 7485 IC - DE Part 13

In a previous tutorial - Arithmetic Circuits, digital circuits for performing arithmetic operations were designed. Like Arithmetic operations, comparison of numbers is also an important mathematical operation. From computing perspective, the comparison of numbers plays vital role in decision making and logical operations. In digital systems, the numbers are in the form of binary numbers. The comparison of two numbers determines whether one number is greater than, equal, or less than the other number. 

 

More Combinational Circuits - Multiplexers, Demultiplexers, Encoders and Decoders - DE Part 14

In digital systems, any information is represented by binary codes. There are many binary code systems as mentioned in the first tutorial of this series. A binary code of n bits can represent 2n discrete symbols or elements of coded information. The digital circuits that perform encoding of digital information are called encoders while digital circuits that decode the coded digital information are called decoders. An encoder with enable pins is called multiplexer while a decoder with enable pins is called demultiplexer.  

Building Encoder and Decoder using SN-7400 Series ICs - DE Part 15

In the previous tutorial - More Combinational Circuits, the basic concepts of encoder, decoder, multiplexer and demultiplexer were discussed. An encoder is used to code digital information according to a pre-defined code system (like BCD, Gray, etc). An encoder inputs data (like from a keypad or keyboard) representing familiar numbers or characters or symbols and output coded binary numbers. So, it inputs the alphabetic characters and decimal numbers from an input device via individual wire lines and produces the outputs as binary coded representation of the input symbols.

ISSI IS29GL256/128 Parallel Flash Memory Devices provide 256/128 megabit flash memory options. Additionally, these devices offer a fast page access time of 20ns with a corresponding random-access time as fast as 70ns. A Write Buffer allows a maximum of 32 words/64bytes to be programmed in one operation, resulting in a faster and more efficient programming time over standard programming algorithms. This makes these devices ideal for today’s embedded applications that require higher density, better performance and lower power consumption.

Are Electric Vehicles really the future of the automotive industry? Some battery-powered cars are already running quite successfully on the roads, breaking the prejudices and presumptions about the electric vehicles that were voiced in the early years of 21st century. According to LMC Automotive Forecast, by the year 2025, still the 85% of new cars in the USA will be powered by internal combustion engines. The share of electric cars by the year 2025, after a steady growth, will still be 15% in the region.

The present day automotive world is overwhelmed with adoption of better convenience on a mass level. The range of these new luxury features range from Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to infotainment systems and other similar things. Needless to say, these have pulled up the overall travel experience to a complete new level. But these new systems have also increased our vulnerability. Hackers can now more easily enter into our lives, our systems and exploit us to a great level. 

 

Building Multiplexer and Demultiplexer using SN-7400 Series ICs - DE Part 16

In the previous tutorial, encoder and decoder circuits were built using SN-7400 series logic gate ICs. The multiplexer and demultiplexer are also combinational circuits similar to encoder and decoder. A multiplexer is a circuit that accepts many inputs and channelize digital data to only one output. The combinational circuit of a multiplexer is similar to encoder with only difference that the multiplexer has select inputs  that determine from which input the data should be channelized to the output. Like encoder, a multiplexer circuit can be built using AND, NOT and OR gates.

Wayne Allen, the Intel data storage pathfinding team leader, likes to describe his work in simplest words, “I make it so you can save endless selfies.” It is true that all our laptops and smartphones are getting slimmer and more efficient with every passing day, the data centers are evolving at a much slower pace than that. There are a few aspects that are moving ahead in leaps and bounds but most are slogging.
