Source:TIBy Peter Flynn, business development manager, Communications Processors, TI The shared access model of the unlicensed Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) wireless spectrum bands has stood the communications industry in good stead for many years. However, it’s no surprise that additional bandwidth is desperately needed to meet the mounting tide of user demand. It’s time…
Source: hackaday.com Obviously, if the air filters in your home HVAC system are dirty, you should change them. But exactly how dirty is dirty? [Tim Rightnour] had heard it said that if you didn’t change your filter every month or so, it could have a detrimental effect on the system’s energy consumption. Thinking that sounded suspiciously…
A year ago, STMicro launched their STLINK-V3SET in-circuit debugger/programmer for STM8 and STM32 microcontrollers, which the company claimed could transfer data quicker with more flexibility due to its onboard STDC-14 connector. For around $35, it’s still a great board to have in the toolbox, but if you only need a stripped-down version of the board, you’re in luck as…
STM32MP157 microprocessors are based on the flexible architecture of a Dual Arm® Cortex®-A7 core running at 650 MHz and Cortex®-M4 at 209 MHz combined with a dedicated 3D graphics processing unit (GPU) and MIPI-DSI display interface and a CAN FD interface. Who should attend this hands-on workshop? This workshop is designed for engineers already familiar with…
Inspired by the open source initiative and to offer low-cost solution with non-constrained R&D flexibility, the TIPoT platform is developed based on free open source software, with the following notable features:
Low-cost hardware platform.
A variety of sensing and display accessories (current examples include light, temperature & humidity, sensing and LCD display).
Free, feature-rich Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
Free, feature-rich network protocol analyzer.
Open source operating system, Contiki (www.contiki-os.org), offers extensive design, research and development flexibility.
Arduino shield pinout compatible.
Software suite includes typical sensing, monitoring, and control application examples, as well as an end-to- end application framework, all using TCP/IPv6 protocol over IEEE 802.15.4.
Significantly lowers the cost for test/experimental R&D and/or prototyping on TCP/IPv6 over wireless sensor network.
