Solar Powered Water!

Posted by Cabe Atwell May 31, 2017
A prototype for household-scale desalination using solar power is in development-will it change the way people get water? This prototype of the Desolenator produces 15 liters of water per day and costs $650.  (image via desolenator)   Currently, approximately 1 billion people live under conditions of water stress-that is, without having reliable access to adequate amounts of clean water.  By 2030, it is estimated that half of the world’s population will be living under the ...
I'm trying to control an unknown stepper motor with the high-end timer (NHET) module of a Texas Instruments Hercules microcontroller I got a freebee from TI almost a year ago. An unknown stepper motor, a driver board and a Hercules RM57 LaunchPad. The code to run the motor was expected to arrive too (it was an assignment for an internal) but that never materialised. In this blog series I'm trying to program the NHET module so that it sends the right signals to make the stepper step.    ...
