Three-Wheel Electric Skateboard
Three-Wheel Electric Skateboard

With the recent buzz around electric cars and the engineering challenges surrounding their development,  join our blogger, Josh, as he takes a look at the feasibility of creating his  own form of alternative electric transport using a unique set of design values.  Josh wanted to prove that electric vehicles need not be heavy, complicated, expensive things but rather super simple, fun to run and built with basic materials. Read on.

ON Semiconductor and BLE 5
ON Semiconductor and BLE 5

It doesn’t seem all that long ago when the general answer to the question, “what is the range of Bluetooth?” was “about a metre less than you need it to be”. But you have to give the Bluetooth SIG credit for driving the technology from a geek-toy to  ubiquitous and handy tool for short-distance connectivity when 5.0 was released. Bluetooth 5 has expanded the application possibilities for low power, edge tier IoT systems. ON Semi's RSL10 SoC gives developers Bluetooth 5 in a tiny, ultra-low power package. Read on to discover the device features and development environment highlights.
