Luke Berndt made a reuse of the RFID enabled Magic Bands from Disney World using a USB powered RFID reader connected to Raspberry Pi.A multinational mass media entertainers Disney has made RFID enabled magic wrist bands which operate on 2.4GHz operating frequency, for the easy access of their services at Mydesiny. By these bands, a visitor/individual can unlock hotel door, buy a meal and even use it for parking.Luke Berndt has made an eye on it and decided to make a complete magic band enabled infrastructure home. Soon after, Luke sensed a glimpse of toughness and decided to start small and make some LED’s blink.
Using Arduino and 3D Printer Joan Paul Laksis built a device to automatically feed, water or snap for his dog. This is a 3D printed product have an impressive looking, functional machine which can be built by any individual with a 3D printer and an intermediate level of electronics, programming and DIY experience.Maker Joan Paul Laksis describes his inspiration for the 3D printed feeder as coming from his dog. Dentastix (Laksis dog), need to feed at the same time of the day every day. Being a machine designer by trade maker Joan Paul has decided to combat this problem by designing a 3D-printed Arduino powered dog feeder to automate this task so he can become more self reliant.
Tektronix, an industry leading innovator of video quality monitoring solutions, announced the industry’s first end to end HEVC test solutions. It provides a deep insight into 4K workflow and enable cable operators, broadcasters and other service providers to make a seamless transition to 4K.
Fujistu laboratories announced the development of automatic test generation technologies in order to limit the excessive testing work and enhance efficiencies for agile software development. This is an evolutionary approach towards software development which incrementally adds small scale functions, and made sure to add one after the other, makes them available.
Infineon Technologies adds a new integrated power stage family, with a power efficiency rating of about 96 percent. The new power stage devices can be combined with Infineon’s latest generation digital PWM power management controllers. This provides a full multiphase voltage regulation system solution for storage, server, client and communication Systems.The integrated power stage reduces power loss and simplifies the design in VR solutions for multicore processors, FPGA’s and ASICs, where power management is critical. Current rating of 70 A in a small 5 mm V 6 mm PQFN SMD package helps phase reduction in multiphase systems.
From fitness trackers to chains, watches or wristbands, all smart wearables are increasingly including the mobile payment functionality. Wearable manufacturers are now challenged to equip even the smallest devices with security and NFC technologies. The solution for this challenge lies in a unique NFC security module, it is now launched by Infineon Technologies in collaboration with Beijing- based Mobile Payment Solutions (MPS). This innovative plug and play solution significantly reduces the design efforts for manufacturers by bundling a high end Infineon security chip with NFC antenna components and software on smallest PCB footprint.
Tektronix an industry standard innovator in video quality monitoring solutions, today unveiled industry’s first hybrid SDI/IP media analysis platform, Prism. It enables a smooth transition from SDI to IP based infrastructure. The test and diagnostic will be demonstrated at the NAB show, from April 18th to 21st in Las Vegas.
