BUFFER AMPLIFIER

An electronic circuits whose primary function is to connect a high-impedance source to a low-impedance load without significant attenuation or distortion of the signal. Hence, the output voltage of a buffer replicates the input voltage without loading the

Intel Galileo : Compatible with Arduino software and shields

When every one is gaga on PI, Intel introducing the Galileo development board, the first product in a new family of Arduino*-compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture. The platform is easy to use for new designers and for those looking to take designs to the next level. Intel recognizes that the people who take creating beautiful things into their own hands with innovation and technology are the same ones that propel us forward. The other big feature of Galileo is that it is compatible with Arduino software and shields, making it a great target for students and educators in the maker scene. And what more, Intel is donating 50,000 Arduino compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture to 1,000 universities around the world over the next 18 months.

What’s a Compiler and Compilation?

What’s a Compiler and Compilation?

A compiler is nothing but a normal program which translates a source program written in some high-level programming language (such as C, C++, Java and etc.,) into executable files which can be understood by some CPU architecture (such as Intel, ARM, AVR, Microchip etc). For this article I have been searching a lot on net, surprisingly

ARM : Example Setting PLL for LPC2148

Hi friends this is Partha, this is my second tutorial on zembedded.com. Thanks for appreciating my first tutorial here. In this tutorial we are going to talk about clocking the ARM microcontrollers. ARM controllers can be clocked in different ways, using external clock with cycle 50-50, connecting external crystal oscillator, there are several clocking mechanism. Today we are going to discuss about using external crystal with on chip PLL oscillator.
