Hi there!   If you're still not familiar with Fluke Connect, you can't miss this short introduction about it.   Fluke Connect™ has added a new level of efficiency and effective collaboration for maintenance and troubleshooting teams in all kinds of manufacturing, commercial, and retail facilities. Technicians can monitor real time results from more than 20 different Fluke test tools from a smart phone (up to 10 at a time on iPhone and 6 on Android). They can also securely share ...
Overview GPS WWAN DEVINFO Summary Overview The Modem Abstraction Layer (MAL) is part of the WNC SDK but I consider it separately because it is focused on controlling the LTE modem. The WNC18Qx device uses a Qualcom MDM9207 chipset which contains 4 ARM Cortex-A7 cores.  In this chip, the LTE modem code runs on 3 of the 4 cores while the last core is running eLinux.  As delivered from Qualcom the LTE modem interaction is through a Radio Interface Layer (RIL).  T ...
Overview Overall Program Flow Main Threads Used Hardware Interfaces Interrupts Binary I/O's I2C Interface Overview The WNC M18Qx Module, running Embedded Linux,  provides access to the hardware either through the Hardware Library, the Modem Abstraction Layer (MAL)--both of which are provided by the WNC SDK--and by using the Azure SDK (which provides the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to interact with Azure).  The overall organization for the ap ...
Build The Program Installing Manually Running SOM Operation and User Interaction Monitoring Output Sending Commands   Build The Program  In Blog #2 you obtained the software for this program by issuing the command:     git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/Avnet/M18QxAzureIoT so you should now have a directory named M18QxAzureIoT that contains all the software and tools needed.  Actually building the program is pretty straight for ...

Web/Azure Prerequisites Create an IoT hub Retrieve the IoT Hub Connection String Register your device in the IoT hub using the Web Interface Install Azure Command Line Interface (CLI) Install Microsoft Azure Device Explorer (Windows GUI) Wrap-up Much of this BLOG has been covered before and in other BLOGS, but for the sake of completeness, I have included it here.  Additionally, Microsoft has recently discontinued support for their iot-explorer CLI tool and inte ...
NOTE: In this Blog series, I go over the implementation of an Azure IoT application that is running on the Avnet LTE Starter Kit, running eLinux.  All source is provided/accessible so I hope it will provide you a starting point should you want to modify/extend it for your own use.  It is written in at an advanced C++/C level and utilizes concepts such as singleton classes and class member function referencing/calls. The Microsoft Azure IoT embedded C SDK is utilized for Azure interacti ...

Posted by bwilless Nov 19, 2018
My name is Brian Willess, I work at Avnet where I'm responsible for training Azure Sphere customers.  I wanted to advertise the MT3620 Azure Sphere device and its supporting systems to this community.  Azure Sphere has everything you need to develop and deploy a secure IoT solution quickly.   Azure Sphere   The Azure Sphere system developed by Microsoft combines a secure MCU, secure OS (Linux kernel), and the Azure Sphere Security Service (in the cloud) to deliver a highly se ...
According to Wikipedia, a DSC (Digital Signla Controller) is a hybrid of microcontrollers and digital signal processors. Due to this unique structure and advantage in computing data, DSCs are used widely in a bunch of applications, such as motor control, power conversion and sensor processing applications. DSCs are even marked as green technologies because of the potrential to redue power consumpition in electric motors and power supplies.   NXP semiconductor foresees the potential of DS ...

What is a wettable QFN?

Posted by kjachim Oct 18, 2018
  As part of the recent KW36/KW35 launch, I saw that this new Bluetooth 5 device was offered in a wettable flanks QFN package and is actually the first Kinetis device to be offered such a package.  So, I wanted to investigate a bit more and try to understand why this is an important for customers.   KW36/KW35 was built targeting applications in the automotive, industrial and medical markets so reliability is key.  The device is also packaged in a quad-flat no-lead (QFN) pack ...
