Assembling a Devastator Robot teaches designers and Makers a lot about microcontrollers, sensors, programming, wireless communication, and motor control.
Switch debouncing utilizing the programmable logic of FPGAs and CPLDs.
Designers can protect IoT systems from tampering in many ways including design techniques and implementing physically unclonable functions (PUF).
Improved system efficiency via lower power, reduced board space, improved processing, or increased flexibility by allocating functions between MCUs and FPGAs.
FPGAs engineer defined functionality combined with a microcontrollers manufacturer defined operation sustain viability of 8-bit devices.
Learn voltage- and current-mode control technique for PWM-signal generation in switching-voltage regulators and where each application is best suited.
By combining power and communications over a single CAT 3 or CAT 5 cable, engineers can construct low-maintenance Ethernet networks quickly and inexpensively compared with installations employing separate systems.
The first Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) standard, IEEE 802.3af, was intended for systems supplying up to 15.4 WDC at the powered device (after taking into account losses in the cable run).
This article discusses of the different types of LED power supplies and how they operate in order to ease the selection process and provide insight by looking at the applications.
The Schottky bypass diodes used in most cell-based solar panels serve as a protection mechanism that allows the panel to continue producing power when one of its cell strings is shaded or damaged.
The trend over the past 20 years in many industrial and automation systems has been to add increasing digital intelligence to individual nodes to make them more responsive.
The last output stage in every wireless system includes some form of RF power amplifier (PA) to send the signal to the antenna.
The embedded world in which we live is collectively developed from thousands of varying MCUs and CPUs. In support of the free flow of data and information, many are interconnected and often wireless.
Backlit displays have become ubiquitous, wherever you go today you see them, and judging the product primarily on the merits of its display.
