Ever since the dawn of time, man has worked tirelessly to make life better. With the advent of computers and the internet, communication and information transfer has become extremely easy. But there’s always been one common way of interacting with these machines. [Read more…]
Have you ever wondered what the little “E” next to your mobile phone network indicator meant? What it signifies? EDGE stands for ‘Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution’. Even though higher communication standards are already being used, like 3G and 4G, EDGE is still one of the most popular data systems used in GSM networks today, especially in countries like India, where 4G is a long way off, and 3G is still not widespread.
The raspberry pi was developed by the foundation of Raspberry in UK. It is a single computer board like a credit card. The operating systems of Raspberry pi are the different versions of Linux. We cannot install it on Microsoft windows because of a different processor. To buy a Raspberry pi, there are a few companies which are selling the Raspberry online like Newark element14, Egoman and Rs components. The main intention of designing a Raspberry Pi is promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools. [Read more…]
A microcontroller is a small computer on a single integrated chip that is programmed to control the devices. Most of the embedded-based projects require knowledge about programming the microcontroller. Once students get an idea about the circuit, schematics and their operations, it becomes really easy to program a microcontroller. [Read more…]
For the policemen, nabbing criminals has always remained a big challenge. However, the ever increasing technological advances like the usage of electronic devices with GPS system, to a certain extent, have eased their challenge. Thus, GPS system plays very crucial role for all types of security and communication systems used in railways and location based systems.
Nowadays microcontrollers are being used very often for implementing embedded based projects and applications. These microcontrollers play significant role in projects involving low-cost and less complex circuits with greater reliability. [Read more…]
