ByteSnap launches electronics and software design troubleshooting and rescue service ByteSnap launches electronics and software design troubleshooting and rescue service We're excited to be launching a new service at the 2019 Electronics Design Show*, aimed at getting struggling electronics projects back on track. Our Design Rescue Service includes a thorough analysis of a project to identify obstacles to finishing the development; advice on the best approach for rescue and provides realistic timelines for delivery. Whether a rescue means replacing some components or starting from scratch to deliver a working product, the engineering team here at ByteSnap has the experience, integrity and honesty to recommend the optimum solution. Even with the best requirements and specifications, electronics design projects can drift. Missed deadlines lead [...]

IoT Insights: 5 conservative industries being transformed by IoT IoT Insights: 5 conservative industries being transformed by IoT Manufacturing, construction, rail, automotive and healthcare: these five vital markets are witnessing growing adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). Much of this expansion is down to a marked reduction in risk. For instance, if a TV doesn’t work it’s annoying but there is no wider impact. In a traditionally conservative industry sector, if a factory can’t run, tens of thousands of pounds can be lost. In medical and digital health markets, if a sensor doesn’t function correctly, someone could even die. As the IoT has matured rapidly to reach the mainstream, the perception is that billions of devices, networks, software and apps are [...]
ByteSnap to reveal the destination for EV charge points at EDS 2019 ByteSnap to reveal the destination for EV charge points at EDS 2019 Award-winning embedded systems consultancy ByteSnap Design will showcase “Smart Charging” solutions for electric vehicles (EVs) at the Engineering Design Show (EDS), where Senior Software Engineer Julian Skidmore will present “The EV Charge Point Journey: What’s The Final Destination” at in the New Electronics Conference. The session, 11.15 am – 12.00 on 16 October, will reflect on the progress and evolution of Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and electric vehicle change point solutions, including whether app-less charge points will become a reality to address lack of signal in some areas. In addition to detailing the nirvana of inductive charging networks, during his [...]
Electric Vehicle “Smart Charging” Solutions from ByteSnap at Engineering Design Show 2019 Electric Vehicle “Smart Charging” Solutions from ByteSnap at Engineering Design Show 2019 Award-winning embedded systems consultancy ByteSnap Design will be showcasing Vehicle-to-Grid and electric vehicle charge point solutions, including an early look at RAY: Smart Charge Point Communications Controller at the Engineering Design Show 2019. RAY: Smart Charging Controller RAY is a smart charge point communications controller supporting both AC charge points and DC chargers using the latest communication standards. The controller and a dumb charger will be on display on Stand L22 at EDS 2019 – one of the UK’s biggest electronics design industry trade shows. RAY has been developed to meet specific new regulations. “The UK government [...]
This method is the most commonly used by engineers who prefer not to use a debugger. The usual caveats apply, adding print statements can wildly affect timing, which can causes old bugs to vanish and new ones to appear.
Getting to the U-Boot command line is fundamental, a whole host of things must be correct to get there. Clocks, memory, serial…: these are some of the things that need to be working before you talk to your board at all.
How to Manage Component Obsolescence How to Manage Component Obsolescence Obsolescence is a dirty word for most engineers. A successful, reliable product can be suddenly rendered unmanufacturable by a single component going End Of Life (EOL), or a new design hasn’t even gone into production and one of the chips has been pulled by the manufacturer. Sometimes it is ICs, sometimes connectors or passives. Any component will have a finite longevity and even the smallest, cheapest, most seemingly insignificant part can jeopardise production of a whole product line. Here’s a roundup of the typical product cycle of a component is (different terms are used by different suppliers). Most mainline semiconductor manufacturers are very good now at labelling where their parts are on [...]
