The Quadro IoT Wi-Fi Kit

The addition of internet connectivity has become a key ingredient of a new generation of “smart products,” i.e., devices that combine sensing, processing, and communications capabilities with internet-based services and applications. The world’s leading businesses are rushing to offer these smart IoT products to gain an edge over the competition. Because of this, the total…

ARM Whitepaper

ARM Cortex®-M Processors are the most popular processor series in the electronics industry. With over 300 licenses, the Cortex-M processors are available in over 3500 microcontroller parts from most of the microcontroller vendors, and are also used in wide range of embedded applications including sensors, wireless communication ASICs, power management ICs and as companion processors…

SPI MMC to PIC Microcontroller ‘C’ code

For applications where more storage is required I would definately reccomend MultiMediaCards (some times called SanDisk (SD) flash). The built in SPI interface only requires four data lines and they are available in sizes of up to 256MByte (at the moment). There are a few little quirks in making the cards work with a PIC…

Portable Fuel Cell Charger

Providing off-grid power solutions is becoming increasingly important in many applications such as in military, disaster relief, and to our own recreational activities like hiking and backpacking. In this project, the team aims to supply and offer portable scalable energy access through an electromechanical fuel cell. In order to overcome the cost, transportability and safety…

LCD Biasing and Contrast Control Methods

This article discusses a variety of methods in biasing Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) focusing on employing PIC microcontrollers with an LCD controller. LCD Types LCD types and LCD waveforms detemine the type of biasing that is required. There are different kinds of LCD biasing, based on the construction. There are two electrodes where the LCD…

Basics of Magnetism

Understanding Magnets Fundamentals of Magnetism Fig. 1 All ferromagnetic materials have atomic magnetic moments that are aligned parallel to each other within small regions called domains. Within these domains, the spontaneous magnetization present is equal to the saturation magnetization of the material, and so the individual domains are fully magnetized at all times. In the…

Bipolar Switch Hall-Effect ICs

There are four general categories of Hall-effect IC devices that provide a digital output: unipolar switches, bipolar switches, omnipolar switches, and latches. Bipolar switches are described in this application note. Similar application notes on unipolar switches, omnipolar switches, and latches are provided on the Allegro™ website. Bipolar sensor ICs are designed to be sensitive switches. (Note…
