RS brings you a Design resource called DesignSpark. When i had to source some hard to find parts as a replacement or design component for a custom product, RS catalog was the answer.
The catalog would give an idea also of what parts are popular and summary specs. This was decades ago, now everything is Online, Datasheets, Manuals, Design resources, Application Notes and most important the Creative IP of many a Genius, from the world over.
The Web or Internet is the spirit of a True and Healthy Globalization, which is for Knowledge Sharing and Free Communication for Positive Growth of Skills. Most important, it enables an Intrepreneur (Internet Entrepreneur) to explore and establish his Trade Online with modest investments.
It is not easy to find complete working embedded projects with designs, code and kit. At Tuxgraphics you will find a way to start your embedded skill development, then expand from hobby to solving some real situations in the nearby small factories or labs. Applied Science is Technology. Hobby is a Door to science that makes Science and Technology Delicious. – Ananth delabs
“We attach a couple of digital temperature sensors (maxim dallas 1-wire sensors) to the tuxgraphics ethernet board and we can use that not only to see the current temperature but also to plot temperature graphs with 5 days of history. To do this an embedded web server is running on the ethernet board along with drivers for the sensors.”
digital DC power supply unit – A very small an really good DC bench power supply unit for your hobby lab. It has lots of features which you normally find only in very expensive power supplies. This one is affordable, small and easy to build.
Components and professionally etched printed circuit board for building a small web server. The main application of those web servers is not so much to provide large web pages but to be able to control hardware. You can switch something on/off, display sensor data, supervise network equipment …
