According to this EDN article, things are happening in the Internet of Things field. Especially interesting the part about LoRa internals unveiled. I think I should have a look at it first chance I get. EDN – Opening up the IoT data flood gates: Semtech/IBM put LoRa spec public.
I had some sample boards made. They have been ready for a few days now, but I have had no time to deal with them, I still don’t. I hope next week I will have them populated, and then the hardest part will start: I will need a lot of free time to tackle the software… To be continued… […]
You have probably heard of the term “embedded systems“. There are a few hardware and software platforms that allow users to develop and test embedded applications and ideas. Take your pick: Arduino, Beaglebone, Raspberry Pi, Launchpads, etc… I own a few of them, plus some less general-purpose ones. One of my favorites is mbed. It is quite easy and powerful. […]
I worked a bit on this project on the National Holiday of the 28th of October. I designed a simple PCB with through-hole parts. Here you can find the project files if you want to modify it with KiCAD: RFM92W If you just want to replicate it as is, here are the Gerbers I will have the PCB made soon […]
I bought recently this bike from Praktiker and I am really pleased with it! The only thing I regret is that it is not greek-made. This was the best offer at the time I wanted to buy one, at 210 euro. It comes from Bulgaria, it is branded ‘Interbike’ model ‘Sintero’ Aluminum alloy 7001 frame. It looks and feels more […]

My EDA suite of choice is kicad once more. I made a footprint and schematic symbol for the modules. I’ll post here any progress…
