Reading time: 2 minute The classic "bell button" (simple return switch) can be and even is replaced, in many mini-automation assemblies, with a resistive sensor (touch). The example described in the article illustrates this "replacement" in the case of a common multivibrator circuit with transistors, used as a bell.
Reading time: 3 minute Unlike traditional solar panels, organic cells offer the possibility to be printed directly on materials such as glass, brick, paint, tile, etc. Printed solar panels will have low production costs, light weight and high flexibility.
Reading time: 6 minute The SIMATIC automation system is represented by components coordinated with unitary methods of configuration, registration and data transmission. The programmable controllers of the SIMATIC family (S7) represent the basis of the automation system.
Reading time: 5 minute The emulator is a high-performance solution for developing microcontroller applications. If in electronics without microcontrollers the oscilloscope is used, in applications with microcontrollers the circuit emulators are also used. It is the most efficient way to see what is happening inside the microcontroller.
Reading time: 3 minute The course presents the circuits known as FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) and CPLD (Complex Programmable Logic Device), respectively, with a focus on the circuits of one of the representative manufacturers of such circuits, Xilinx.
Reading time: 4 minute Buttons, switches represent the way in which the user controls the operation of the electronic module (ECU). An ECU must have a block dedicated to taking over and interpreting the signals obtained from the buttons.
Reading time: 4 minute Also called DRIVERS, the execution blocks are the electronic circuits through which an ECU controls the consumers for which it is responsible (motors, bulbs, LEDs, heating elements, fans, etc.).
Reading time: 2 minute The SBC is an integrated circuit that includes several independent functional blocks, in a single chip, with the main purpose of saving space. The functional blocks contained meet specific needs for the automotive industry.
