Smart home devices are the in-thing today as they make it easier to control wireless, video, data, security, climate and lighting applications or home appliance and lifestyle gadgets with a single command. Home automation ranges from simple activities like setting up a lamp to turn it on and off at your whim to advanced surveillance cameras, house-cleaning robots, and Wi-Fi routers.

Littelfuse Inc. launched the first PxxxxS4xLRP Series SIDAC Protection Thyristor two days back. The thyristor promises a robust protection against CVBS (Composite Video Blanking Sync) signal ports from disastrous overvoltage transients. It represents a unique fusion of 6V operational voltage along with 100A 5/310 µs surge peak current ability and a very low junction capacitance rating. All these make the P0080S4BLRP perfect for securing a comprehensive portfolio of devices requiring data line protection. 

Embedded C

Looking around, we find ourselves to be surrounded by various types of embedded systems. Be it a digital camera or a mobile phone or a washing machine, all of them has some kind of processor functioning inside it. Associated with each processor is the embedded software. If hardware forms the body of an embedded system, embedded processor acts as the brain, and embedded software forms its soul. It is the embedded software which primarily governs the functioning of embedded systems.

TCP/IP Based IoT Communication with ThingSpeak Platform : IOT Part 29

ESP8266 based TCP-IP Connected ThingSpeak Arduino Temperature Monitor CircuitIn the previous tutorial, features, advantages and limitations of TCP/IP Protocol were discussed. Though, TCP/IP is not best suited for IoT applications due to packet overheads, still being the most common protocol stack on internet, it offer ubiquitous connectivity. An IoT device can be made to communicate with a cloud or server using TCP/IP protocol without any hassle of network programming and network administration. In this project, an IoT device will be designed that could transmit sensor data to ThingSpeak Platform using the TCP/IP protocol.

Andy Rubin, Nick Sears, Rich Miner, and Chris White founded Android Inc. in October 2003. Firstly, Andy Rubin developed Android OS for digital cameras but he realized that the market for digital camera operating systems perhaps was not all that big. In 2005, Android wasbought by Google and Andy Rubin along with other co-founders continued working under new owners. In 29 June 2007,iPhone was released by Apple Inc with iOS, which was the first OS in the mobile market.

Automation applications generally require controlling multiple actuators (like many motors) at the same time. For concurrent and synchronous controlling of many actuators, they need to be controlled and operated independently. Engineers use as many controllers (microcontrollers or ASICs) as the number of actuators needs to be independently operated. 

 

 

Portable UART Data Receiver/Tester

Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART) is the most common point to point (peer) serial communication interface used in microcontrollers. It is a simple two-wire interface that requires no clock signal or any master device for serial transmission of data between two embedded devices. It can transmit data packets of variable length (5 to 9 bits) with the provision of a parity bit for error detection. That is why almost all microcontrollers have USART or at least UART peripheral built-in.
