Lumileds LUXEON SunPlus Series LEDs are binned and tested based on Photosynthetic Photon Flux (PPF). They deliver precise light wavelengths and optimized spectra for improved crop yields. This makes them ideal for indoor and greenhouse farming. In addition to the energy saving benefits that LEDs can bring over traditional lighting methods, LUXEON SunPlus Series LEDs are created in colors specifically targeting wavelengths where plants absorb light. The devices offer solutions for single-driver, multi-channel and color-tunable options.

ON DEMAND WEBINAR: The 3 necessary evils - Discover and solve power integrity, signal integrity and EMI issues affecting designs

Today a lot of electronic designs are faced with multiple challenges while integrating digital, analog and RF circuits. To achieve compliance and relevant performance, designers need to characterize power lines and tracks, high speed comms and verify their integrity while not causing any bigger EMI issues. Since they interact and interfere with each other, a comprehensive debugging approach is required to get your products to market in time.

 Attendees will learn:
 The relevance of power integrity, signal integrity, and EMC
 Their interactions and their impact on your design
 To uncover, to locate and to solve these challenges

Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) : IOT Part 28

Written By:

TCP-IP ProtocolTransmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a transport layer or routing protocol. The Internet Protocol (IPv4 and IPv6) is a network layer or adaption layer protocol. Often TCP and IP are quoted together as TCP/IP. This quotation actually refers to communication of these two protocols. The TCP and IP are two separate protocols operating at different TCP model layers and OSI levels.

SIM800 based GPRS Enabled Arduino LED Controller MQTT Client Circuit In the previous tutorial, SIM800 module was configured as TCP-IP Client and a PC was configured as TCP-IP server. The two were setup to communicate over TCP-IP stack using an Arduino UNO as gateway. In this tutorial, the SIM800 will be configured as an MQTT Client and setup to communicate over MQTT protocol with a PC client. In the previous tutorial, the PC was configured as server to set SIM800 modem into working mode. In this project, the PC will serve as another client and communicate with the GSM GPRS modem via HiveMQ broker. 

 

Configuring SIM800 Modem using a PC as server over TCP-IP Protocol: IOT Part 26

: SIM800 Module with most IC pins already interfaced with external componentsSIM800 is a popular GSM GPRS modem. It supports General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) for connecting to the Internet. This module has built-in TCP/IP stack that can be accessed serially with AT commands.The modem needs to be configured by connecting it to a PC. In such setup, the SIM800 modem with SIM card acts as TCP client and the PC  acts as TCP server.

 SIM800 GSM GPRS ModemIn the previous tutorial, the Ethernet technology was used to connect an Arduino based IOT device with the internet network. The IOT devices can also be connected to internet network using mobile technologies like GSM, CDMA and GPRS. There are two major technologies for data transfers over cellular networks - GSM and GPRS. These two technologies differ from each other on the basis of data rates and the charges they take for their operation.

HiveMQ Broker controlled Arduino Ethernet based Temperature Monitor Circuit WorkingIn the previous tutorial, the basics of Ethernet technology were discussed. In this tutorial, the Ethernet technology will be used to connect an Arduino board over internet with a PC. The Arduino based IOT device and the PC will be setup to communicate using MQTT protocol via HiveMQ Broker. 
 
An IOT device based on Arduino will be designed in this project. The Arduino will be interfaced with an Arduino Ethernet Shield to connect with a router via Ethernet cable (Cat 5e).

Ethernet Cables
In the previous tutorials, the IOT devices designed were connecting with the internet network via Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi is a wireless standard. It is commonly used to provide data communication among mobile devices and the internet network. Another common standard used for networking devices and computers is Ethernet.  
 
Ethernet is most commonly used Local Area Network (LAN) technology. It provides a wired communication to connect the devices to the Internet.

 

ESP8266 based IOT Temperature Monitor using Adafruit Broker : IOT Part 21

Adafruit Broker controlled ESP8266 based Temeperature and Humidity Monitor Circuit In the previous tutorial, ESP8266 module was used to design a Home Area Network to control an LED light from a remote PC. The PC client was used to send control signals to switch on and off the LED light in the Home Area Network. In this tutorial, the ESP module will be interfaced with DHT-11 temperature sensor and temperature  data will be sent to the PC client for real-time temperature monitoring. 

In this project, instead of LED, the DHT-11 sensor will be interfaced with the ESP8266 on ESP Client side.

ESP8266 based Device to Device LED Control IOT CircuitsDevice to Device Communication has a great role in IOT. In context to IOT systems, this device to device communication usually voids human interaction and control over the devices and the devices are meant to communicate with each other autonomously. In this tutorial, a similar demonstration of Device to Device Communication is presented.
