Introduction There is a remote power control solution for home use by a company called Energenie, that provides radio-controlled mains socket adapters for UK use. These are intended for use with small radio-controlled handset, like a TV remote; I wanted the ability to use them with any microcontroller board. This is a short post about my findings. The aim was to control these sockets: with this:   What about Europe, US, Asia, etc? Unfortunately I don’t believe they have a product ...
It was back in 2011, I can't recall exactly when, but I came across this board called the Raspberry Pi on one of the myriad of tech blogs I frequent. I do remember getting quite excited, mostly due to the low cost. I shared the details with my work colleagues and followed the  website to keep track on progress.   When the RPi was finally released in 2012, I wasn't surprised that both Farnell (Element14) and RS Electronics had trouble keeping up with demand. The RPi certainly wasn't th ...
Decisions made during design processes shape the possibilities of success and failure of a component, sub-system or end product. Much of the time these choices are not clear cut and few reside in the proverbial “no brainer” category.  For the design engineer trying to decide whether to select an ARM or x86 architecture for his/her embedded project the decision, as Ringo Starr once put it, “you know it don’t come easy.” Indeed, with huge potential markets like t ...
