The project that I'm working on with the Rapid IoT requires reading information from an external NFC tag.  The Rapid IoT has the capability of reading and writing an internal NT3H2211 NFC tag, but it does not have the capability to read or write an external tag.  The simplest way to implement that is to use a Mikroelektronika Click card, but that requires adding a Click interface for the Rapid IoT.  Mikroelektronica has 3 Click expansion units in the Hexiwear product line that als ...
The MCUXpresso IDE is an Eclipse based development environment that offers more advanced editing, compiling and debugging of applications for the Rapid IoT device. In this blog post I'm going to cover generating an example program using MCUXpresso.   You need to download and install two components: 1) MCUExpresso IDE  http://www.nxp.com/MCUXpresso 2) Rapid IoT SDK  http://www.nxp.com/rapid-iot   The Rapid IoT SDK actually contains two SDKs, one for each processor in the ...
In December of 2017 I had a solar system installed at my house.  This is my first experience using solar technology.  I thought that since I've had the system running for a full year that it useful to review how well it has performed relative to my expectations.  I had previously posted the system description as part of the Heat is On Solar Project contest on Project14: https://www.element14.com/community/community/project14/solarpowerdevices/blog/2018/07/31/solar-spec-intro,  ...
NXP provides two different IDEs to develop programs for the Rapid IoT device.  The first is Rapid IoT Studio which is a graphically oriented web based Atmosphere drag-and-drop IDE.  The second is the MCUXpresso IDE which is an Eclipse based IDE for NXP's microcontrollers based on the Arm Cortex-M cores.  The second option requires that you download and install the free MCUXpresso application.  You also need to download and install the SDKs associated with the MK64F12 and MKW4 ...
