Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are popular among engineers, developers, and hobbyists and they are readily available for use in many devices that we use in our daily lives. You can find them in portable electronic devices, industrial machines, heavy equipment, communication devices and consumer electronics. The PCBs we see today are usually very complex and […]
Following the recent introduction of color E-Ink displays and color eReaders from several companies, Hisense, a well-known TV manufacturer has launched and is currently taking pre-orders for their Hisense A7CC 5G smartphone exclusively equipped with a 6.7-inch color E-Ink display. The Chinese company had earlier (sometime in December last year) launched Hisense A7 5G – the world’s first E-ink display smartphone with
AppSens, a Norway-based medical technology manufacturer, designed ‘ECG247 Smart Heart Sensor‘ – a Bluetooth LE enabled wearable ECG sensor, powered by Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC, to detect irregular heartbeats. This device is a wearable electrocardiographic (ECG) heart monitor designed to detect atrial fibrillation and other major cardiac arrhythmias. Atrial fibrillation is the most commonly occurred cardiac rhythm disorder and is
Samsung is taking on Murata with a 1209 MLCC that is 18 percent thinner at 0.65mm and replaces four other devices in 5G smartphones. By Nick Flaherty @ eenewseurope.com Samsung Electro-Mechanics has developed a 0.65mm 1209 format multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) for 5G smartphones that is 18 percent thinner than previous products. It plans to use the
GNSS location with standards like GPS is a key feature of smartphones and other devices. They enable you navigate around, and share your location with friends, family, and business contacts. However, sometimes we find it difficult to get an accurate location because of a number of factors like tall buildings in urban area bouncing the satellite network, etc.
The utilization of real-time streaming presents an excellent opportunity for engaging with our surroundings, such as through a CCTV camera. But have you ever wondered about the underlying technology? Imagine if we could achieve the same functionality using a Raspberry Pi. Specifically, we could stream the live feed from the Pi Camera to various client
The standard Raspberry Pi computers have been in short supply for a while now, so much so that people are going to great lengths to find replacements. Whether it’s migrating to alternative single-board computers or finding clones of the Pi that are “close enough”, there are solutions out there. This method of building a full-size Raspberry
In this guide, I will demonstrate how to utilize a Raspberry Pi 3 as an alternative to Chromecast. It is important to note that this approach is not an exact replica of Chromecast and has certain limitations. While it does not offer support for the cast button, it allows for streaming of YouTube videos, as
There has recently been a desire and surge in the development of standalone portable hardware development kits with qwerty keyboards and displays all fitted into a smartphone/blackberry-like (with trackpads) form factors, either for the sake of portability, or security and ease of use. One of the recent boards developed on these premises is the precursor;
Precursor is a compact device with a physical keyboard, a built-in display, and an internal battery. It is an open hardware development platform for secure, mobile computation and communication, this device offers a system that users can have nearly complete control over, also with an added advantage of being smaller and lighter than an average smartphone.
