Come Forth Into the Light of Things
Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher,” wrote William Wordsworth in his poem from 1798 titled The Tables Turned. Any conspiracy theorist worth his salt would have loved to jump on that line as a prediction of what is to come.
Some Projects Using Wearable Devices
The rising rate of pollution, tardiness and a couple of other issues has led to numerous health issues, in particular, cardiac issues, asthma and dental issues, which are posing to be life threatening and life deteriorating.
SensAiry: A Health Tracker for Cars
SensAiry solves a problem that might seem simple at a superficial level but eventually ends up causing a significant amount of trouble to millions of people.
American Carrier Strike Groups: An Electronic Perspective

Part 4 of 5

In the previous parts of this article, we discussed air defence warfare, electronic warfare, under-sea warfare, surface warfare and strike warfare. Let us take a look at air operations in this part.

Market Survey: LCD Display Panels: What Ails the Manufacturing Ecosystem
A Frost & Sullivan study titled Analysis of the Indian LCD Panel Market, published in 2009, highlighted the increasing demand for LCD panels for domestic consumption and conceded that, keeping a wide scope of application and high local demand in perspective, the time is ideal for LCD panel manufacturing in India.
FPGA Prototyping Techniques
Field programmable gate array (FPGA) prototyping, commonly referred to as FPGA based prototyping, applicationspecific integrated circuit (ASIC) prototyping or system on chip (SoC) prototyping, is the method to prototype SoC and ASIC designs on FPGAs for hardware verification and early software development.
Things You May Like to Know About Soldering
How should an engineer go about adopting the right soldering method? This is probably a question that most electronics engineers face at least once in their lives.
Cyber Crime
Digital Forensics and Investigation: Computer Forensics Tools
Part - 2 of 2

In the first part of this article, last month, we discussed digital forensics and investigation, the three phases of forensics investigation, legal considerations, branches of digital forensics, digital forensic and investigation teams, and applications of digital forensics.
Solar Garden Lamp
Described here is an easy-tomake solar night light that can be fixed in the lawn. It automatically turns on in the evening and turns off in the morning.
Innovative Components for LED Lighting Systems
Business has two basic functions, namely, marketing and innovation. A general shift to light emitting diode (LED) lighting across markets is expected to drive the LED industry to the point where marketing will have to focus on innovative features differentiating their LED products from those of their competitors.
Sensing Peripheral Devices with MC1489A Receiver
Presented here is a circuit for monitoring the status of electrical or peripheral devices using the classical MC1489A receiver found in RS232 based devices. RS232 standard is still widely incorporated in embedded systems.
Simple Prescaler for Transmitters
Most phase-locked loop (PLL) based transmitters
use a prescaler chip at the heart of their oscillator.
eSim for Circuit Design, Simulation, Analysis and PCB Design
In this article we take a look at eSim, a powerful open source software for integrated electronic design applications including circuit design, simulation, analysis and PCB
Home Theatre Backlight Unit
If you have watched your LCD/ plasma television late at night in complete darkness with all lights switched off, you might have experienced an irritating eye strain or headache after some time.
Lets Get Started With Intel Galileo
Intel Galileo is a part of Arduino family and is as simple to program even for non-programmers. Arduino philosophy is consistent in Intel Galileo as well.
