Measure Climate Change with Hydroponic System Blog #3 | XMC4700 + DC Motor Shield with Hydroponic System   Highlights  This time, i added a couple of sensors to the hydroponic system. Also, I invited some duck and car for entertainment .   Here is a list of the highlights of Measure Climat ...
This week I concentrate on Servo control and create valve for EM substance.  After my further research,  I found that we can use analogWrite() command to send  PWM duty cycle to the servo. This is convenience to control servo, but you need to specify the PWM  frequency at startup with setAnalogWriteFrequency (SERVO_EM, 22). 22 is the period in ms. Actually it’s should be 20 ms (equal to 50 Hz)   But after trial and check with the oscilloscope, 22  gave th ...
Since the first blog I've had the opportunity to play around with the XMC4200 Platform2GO board and in the process I've become a little more familiar with the DAVE IDE.   The diagram below illustrates the different interfaces for the smart sprinkler controller I am developing:     The RTC (Real Time Clock) is used to maintain the sprinkler schedule I2C is used to acquire barometric pressure measurements from the DPS368 module The communications interface with the host provid ...
1. The Cooling Peltier 2. Thermal Energy Harvesting 3. How to use 1. The Cooling Peltier Here is the picture , with nameplate rating 12V The principle is simple, as the following picture shows, I have just fetch the pic from other web directly, so, just for reference. It would be better I draw by hand and use my version. The Cooling  Peltier can be heating pad if change side but it is fragile and easy to be damaged when overheating. It is covered with ceramic, so, insta ...
Quick start and copy my application here. I would like to use as many as interesting Infineon Part in this project. Smart Freezer   1. Introduction Smart Portable Freezer is portable and can be used for Medicine distribution like Vaccine or Insulinum. The batterys is included in the freezer to provide power source of 12V, just enough to drive the NPN cooling pad. peltier.   2. Function Blocks 2.1 Battery management Control the battery charging and discharge, record the battery capacit ...

Hi All, Hope we are all doing good, Its very glad to be part in this contest. My target would be getting some trees in my name "Ashok's Tree" I received my kits on last week and thought to unbox all the kits in-front of you all. Total 6 kits including the pressure & 3D magnetic sensor. Kits boxes are quarantined for 3 days & sanitized before unboxing.   Even though my application is "Smart Hoe" but after seeing the kits features, i am slightly going to change in my concept.  ...
This week I spend most of my time in programming for 3D sensor and Servo control. My development environment is Arduino.  You can go to https://github.com/Infineon/XMC-for-Arduino/wiki/Implementation-in-Arduino-IDE  for instruction on how to add XMC support for Arduino. After installing Arduino, you need to install 3D sensor library by going to Sketch—> Include Library —> Manage Libraries..  Search for TLV and you should found TLV493D-A1B6 by Infineon. If you can ...

Blog #1: Measure Climate Change with Hydroponic System Blog #1 | Concept Design and Plans Blog #2: Measure Climate Change with Hydroponic System Blog #2 | XMC4200 Bring-up and Hydroponic System   Highlight Last time, I tried developing the system with XMC4200 microcontroller development kit. However, the XMC4200 programming environment was not supported on Arduino software as far as I understood. The source codes available for the DC motor are Arduino based. So, I decided t ...
So, this my second blog to tell the basic framework of my project-: As the project suggest the home super smart. Smart home suggests us home automation but here in my project here is a twist of sustainability and that is the main concept which my smart home will hold.   I will try to release every new feature using different blogs every week-:   First feature of my smart home Completely IOT automated using voice operated commands   I have tried testing of voice automated feat ...

This week I will focus on create function control and create simple prototype for development environment.  I had designed the control panel as the following picture. There is one knob to control everything by turning knob (using 3D sensor) to select each function. Users can control each motor separately or set auto to let the machine start from the beginning until end process.  When each motor works the LED will blink. It works like washing machine which will tell you what is machin ...
The Climate Trace Coalition is developing an app that uses advanced AI, machine learning, and satellite data to track greenhouse gas emissions that can be monitored in real-time. (Image credit: Pixabay)   A few weeks ago, nine tech organizations, and one US president, came together to form a coalition and announce a new initiative aimed at tackling climate action. To achieve their goal, Climate Trace (Tracking Real-Time Atmospheric Carbon Emissions) is developing a new app that will be cap ...
It is a real honor to be chosen as one of the participants in the Sustain the World Design Challenge.  Infineon and Newark Element 14 provided a really generous package consisting of 2 different ARM Cortex M4 development boards along with 3 different peripheral boards.   My entry for the challenge is to develop a controller for an automated sprinkler system that predicts the weather by means of detecting changes in the atmospheric air pressure.  When the conditions for rain are p ...

Blog #2  Preparation This week I spent time searching for solutions for food waste crusher and DC motor to drive it. Because the original idea is to drive with 12 V DC motor for future expansion for solar cell and battery.  I had select meat grinder for use as food crusher as in the picture.       You can find these from any online store.  I ordered it from a local e-commerce shop. Please note that there are many sizes. I selected #22  #12 will be too small. A ...
