Make Your Own Arduino Board by using Atemga328 IC – A DIY Project

Introduction:Atmega328 IC is the brain of the Arduino board. Arduino board is popular for use in projects but is not suitable for industrial use. Instead, we can use Standalone Atmega328 IC which can be programmed with Arduino IDE without using the Arduino board. In this project, we will be replacing the Arduino board with Atmega328 IC and other components. First, we will have to burn the Arduino Bootloader and then program it using FTDI or Arduino board.Components Required:Atmega328 ICBreadboardLM780516 MHz Crystal22pF ceramic capacitors (2)10uF capacitor(2)10 K resistor1k resistorJumper wiresElectronicsLovers official Online Store – shop.electronicslovers.comPin Diagram of Atmega328Circuit and Components Description:

I would recommend to get a DC-DC Buck Converter which can be usually set to voltages from 3 to 35 volts, with inputs from 3 to 35 volts. And depending on your application you need to make sure that your buck converter have enough power, or it can handle the amount of current your project needs. Or of course, you can get a particular voltage DC adapter or power supply.

Top 8 Common Issues with Raspberry Pi and how to resolve them

Introduction:There are a number of errors you may encounter while working with the Raspberry Pi, some are not as simple are they seem while others only take a few minutes. Today we will share some of the most common issues you may face while using the Raspberry Pi (we assume you are using the latest Raspbian OS) and how you can resolve them1: Boot Issues:  There are a number of factors that can lead to boot issues. Usually, this is indicated by the power LED (RED) being ON and the Activity LED (GREEN) if either OFF or permanently ON.How to Solve this:The green LED usually indicates when the Pi is working i.e. software activity.  In case it doesn’t blink after regular intervals you should check your SD card lot. This is where the Pi’s software is housed. Check whether the SD card is properly inserted or not, in case of no effect, check whether the files on it are corrupt or not. In this case, format your SD card and flash it again with the OS. Before formatting, keep in mind to copy yo…

Scaling Electric Vehicle Production Requires Advanced Battery Formation and Test Systems

Driven by tighter CO2 regulations and more eco-conscious consumers, the pace of migration to electric vehicles continues to accelerate, with up to 10% of all vehicles sold by 2025 expected to be battery-powered, compared to less than 1% today. This is despite the high cost of the batteries, which stubbornly remain approximately half of the overall cost of the vehicle.While there are many factors that determine the cost of the battery, one area in which manufacturers can make significant headway in reducing cost is during the final stages of manufacturing. Specifically, during battery formation and test, which can account for up to 20% of the cost of an EV’s battery.Battery formation and test is a time consuming process involving multiple charges and discharges that activate a battery’s chemistry and can take up to two full days. This necessary procedure readies the battery for use and is critical to ensure its reliability and quality. Due to how slow the process is, it is a significan…

RF-Based 12-Bit Signal Transmitter And Receiver

The circuit presented here converts 12-bit parallel digital data to serial data and then transmits it through RF transmitter module. Serial data is received at RF receiver module in serial format. The received signal is then converted to parallel data through a microcontroller (MCU), same as original data. This circuit can be modified for use […]The post RF-Based 12-Bit Signal Transmitter And Receiver appeared first on Electronics For You.

EPCOS India Pvt. Ltd name changed to TDK India Pvt. Ltd

December 20, 2018TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) announces that it has changed the name of its subsidiary EPCOS India Private Limited (EPCOS India) to TDK India Private Limited (TDK India) with effect from December 13, 2018. The name change took place within the scope of renaming of all EPCOS entities worldwide after EPCOS AG, the parent company of the EPCOS Group, was renamed to TDK Electronics AG on October 1, 2018. This change will further strengthen the uniform market presence of the TDK Group in India.The new company name will have no effect on the EPCOS product portfolio, the organizational and business structure of the company, or the scope of its services.TDK Corporation has been present in India since 2008 when it acquired EPCOS AG, and with it EPCOS India. TDK India has a network of design and manufacturing locations for film capacitors and ferrites and sales offices all over the country. In fiscal 2018 (ending in March) the company employed more than 2200 people and posted sales…

DICE’s statement on the HAL Airport incident

On the 22nd of this month (December 2018), two individuals were arrested after they were found flying drones for an aerial photo shoot near HAL airport premises, as their drones partially obstructed the flight path of a fighter helicopter at the facility.As representatives of the drone industry in India, we strongly condemn irresponsible acts that place people and property in danger.This incident is an example of what can happen when technology and regulations are not in sync with our evolving requirements for safety, security and privacy. It is at a moment like this that a regulator has an opportunity to step in and ensure that such behaviour does not define the drone industry as a whole and does not take away from the positive impact that the technology and industry stand to make.Incidents such as this should be curtailed through effective and constructive measures implemented by the technology itself rather than reactive measures driven by uncertainty.In that regard, the recently l…

GetSparked Year in Review

Back in May, a new collaboration between SparkFun and GroupGets called GetSparked kicked off as a new approach to getting your passion projects to market. GetSparked presents an opportunity to get your product on SparkFun’s catalog after a successful group buy campaign on GroupGets. Starting with GetSparked for new product introduction (NPI) is a low risk (and zero cost) way to get early market feedback on the demand for and utility of your product before you commit to higher volume production. As 2018 comes to a close, let’s take a look what worked, what didn’t, and what’s ahead for GetSparked.After about 7 months of the program I think that it’s just now hitting its stride and is poised to grow in 2019. One product has already made its way from GroupGets to the SparkFun catalog and another one has a good shot. There are 10 new GetSparked candidates on GroupGets now with various levels of backing and a handful that have failed which is very OK in our book. It’s generally better and c…
