Give your Robot the Mobility Control of a real Mars Rover: Part 4
Give your Robot the Mobility Control of a real Mars Rover: Part 4

In Part 1 we covered the theory behind PID control; Part 2 we discussed the practical issues of odometry and using PID for precise mobile robot navigation; Part 3 we looked at code and other features of practical rover design. Now, in our final blog we look at the number of wheels you will need and whether suspension is required - this depends on the type of terrain your robot will move on...

IoT Blockchain Demonstrators Part 1
IoT Blockchain Demonstrators Part 1

When you hear “blockchain” it’s natural to immediately think of Bitcoin — and in turn its highly dynamic nature, along with specialist computer rigs that consume lots of energy in a race to mine more of the cryptocurrency. However, this is but one blockchain application and the secure, distributed ledger technology can be put to use in supporting a great many other applications. Such as, for example, the Internet of Things.

R7FS1JA Synergy Ultra-low power Microcontroller
R7FS1JA Synergy Ultra-low power Microcontroller

The R7FS1JA Synergy MCU is based on a 48MHz Arm® Cortex®-M23 processor core with up to 256KB code flash and 32KB SRAM memory. A key feature of the device is potential elimination of a range of external components that might traditionally be used for signal conditioning applications or for the precision measurement of analogue signals. Integrating a 16-bit ADC, a 24-bit sigma-delta ADC, a 12-bit DAC.

650 V & 1200 V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diodes
650 V & 1200 V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diodes

Silicon Carbide (SiC) Schottky Diodes use a new technology that provides superior switching performance and higher reliability to silicon. No reverse recovery current, temperature independent switching characteristics, and excellent thermal performance sets Silicon Carbide as the next generation of power semiconductor. Benefits include highest efficiency, faster operating frequency, increased power density, reduced EMI, and reduced system size and cost.
