If Day 1 wasn't overwhelming enough (see the Embedded World 2017 Day 1 and the Day 1 continued blog posts), Day 2 ensured that : ) There is so much to see that I didn't have time for lunch. A coffee and cake was about all that was possible when some energy was needed mid-afternoon.   Wago Wago had an extensive range of connectors on display.      What I didn’t know was that they also had a PLC system, called PFC 200. A brief presentation of it is in the video bel ...
Here are some more interesting things seen on Day 1 at the show:   The Micro:Bit and the Mi:Node kit The micro:bit is a tech highlight; it offers immense ease-of-use for children and beginners through several programming languages (including graphical and text based languages) with an online development environment. Using it is a very smooth experience. Furthermore it offers a lot of functionality on-board; as well as the 5x5 LED matrix that can display scrolling text, there is built-in wir ...

It is a small world.   Here are some of the interesting finds from day 1, there will be more to follow but I wanted to space it out in a few blog posts since there is too much to cover. & ...
