ByteSnap at Railtex 2017- Day 1

2018-10-09T11:31:30+00:00

The UK's biggest rail show, Railtex 2017, has opened its doors to the public  - and ByteSnap's consultants were in the thick of it! Railtex is an international showcase for the latest trends and technology in the rail industry.  One of the main themes in the lecture theatre at the exhibition is remote condition monitoring - which directly ties in with one of our demonstrations! Our remote monitoring model with movement sensor shows how the technology can help automate and log remote events at sites. This can be used to get accurate information about events that take place for evaluating damage caused by vehicles striking bridges, failure of line equipment, land slippage and many other areas of concern that can be hard to monitor due to their [...]

Fast UI Prototyping for Raspberry Pi: ByteSnap Launch New UI Builder

2016-10-19T08:48:01+00:00

Winner of BEEAs 2016 Design Team of the Year, ByteSnap Design, is launching the latest iteration of SnapUI at this year’s EDS on stand L22. Developers can now use SnapUI for accelerated development of production-ready code Faster UI Prototyping: ByteSnap Design’s user interface development framework SnapUI has now been extended to support Raspberry Pi and i.MX6-based embedded devices.  SnapUI already allows Windows embedded and Linux developers to build and test user interfaces before hardware development of the target device is complete. When designing new hardware devices, keeping the user interface design in step with hardware development can be difficult; worse, when the user interface is overlooked or is the last consideration in the design process, projects can suffer significant delays in getting product to market. SnapUI mitigates [...]

BSP Porting: Your 5 Key Steps to Development Success

2018-10-09T10:55:45+00:00

Take BSP Porting from Stress to Success When selecting the hardware which will make up the core of your next product, there are many choices. Once this has been decided, BSP porting must be completed to ensure the software elements fit the new hardware. Among the key decisions you need to make are which CPU to go for and which operating system to use on it. The market has moved from silicon vendors selling just components; the start-up software they offer is now just as important as the hardware. BSP Porting: Which CPU?? At first glance, the array of embedded CPU options from silicon vendors, module providers and single board computers may appear daunting. “There are so many out there - which one’s the right one?” is a query [...]

Electric vehicle charging post design

2015-10-05T10:20:39+00:00

A fleet of 300 electric vehicles (EVs) is transporting athletes and officials between venues during the 2012 London Olympic Games. The charging posts used by the fleet will be among the busiest electric vehicle charging posts in Europe during the event and reliability was a key requirement. ChargePoint Services asked ByteSnap to develop new electronics and software for the GE Energy DuraStation charging posts that LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games) had selected. The original electric vehicle charging post design used a standalone PC to authorise EV charging; to provide connectivity with ChargePoint’s central management system, ByteSnap designed a Windows Embedded Compact-based board to replace the PC, adding metering and remote management features via GPRS backhaul. ChargePoint’s central management system monitors the charging posts and provides control [...]
