As electronics product designers we know that the compliance process in electronics product development can appear intricate and precarious, if rules or regulations are misinterpreted.
While working on Apple HomeKit projects, we have found that some challenges crop up again and again. This guide helps new Homekit developers climb the ladder to smart home success.
A series of market, regulatory and technical changes mean that demand is slowing, and as those factors continue to snowball, we will soon see the ultimate demise of PHEVs.
See ByteSnap's Demo at Embedded World 2019 SnapUI at Embedded World 2019 ByteSnap is back at the world's largest embedded electronics trade show this month - with a demonstration of our highly flexible UI framework. Our interactive cooker control demo will be running SnapUI Linux on NXP's much-anticipated i.MX7ULP processor at Embedded World 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany. SnapUI is ByteSnap's high-efficiency graphic framework which allows you to create high performance user interfaces for low power devices. ByteSnap Director Graeme Wintle says “We are very excited showing SnapUI working on the 7ULP, it demonstrates the efficiency and versatility of the framework on such a low power device.” The demonstration uses the SnapUI framework to render using the OpenGL accelerated GPU of the i.MX7 [...]

One million seconds to Christmas MARKING 1 MILLION SECONDS TO CHRISTMAS FOR CHARITY With the countdown to the big day continuing - we decided to mark 1 million seconds to Christmas with a festive coffee morning for charity. Earlier today, at 10:13:20 (exactly one million seconds to Christmas), ByteSnap staff gathered together for "Mince Pies and Munchies" to raise money for our Christmas charity this year - the Buddy Bag Foundation. The Buddy Bag Foundation was set up by Karen Williams in response to the increasing number of children fleeing violent situations at home and ending up in emergency accommodation. The charity prepares essentials back packs for children entering emergency care after a traumatic incident. The purpose of the Buddy Bags is [...]
EV Charging: PlugFest 2018 Review PlugFest 2018 - so what was it really like? An update now on our VIGIL Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) project! We’ve been busy working alongside our consortium partners on the foundation of our pioneering V2G platform. ByteSnap is developing the OCPP module and companion app for the V2G system. As part of our VIGIL project R&D, two ByteSnap engineers took part in an international EV testing symposium recently. They’re held at different destinations around the world each year and this was our first time at such an event. So, was it worth it…? Read our Q & A and find out… PlugFest 2018 Review – Q & A Where and when? The 10th International Testing Symposium was held on [...]
FPGA Design: Connecting Custom Peripherals to AXI Using BRAM Interface Download the new eBook: FPGA Design - Interfacing Over AXI Using A Simple Address Data Bus Download the new eBook: FPGA Design - Interfacing Over AXI Using A Simple Address Data Bus In FPGA design, interfacing over AXI (ARM eXtensible Interface) is an increasingly popular choice due to its status as the most widespread AMBA interface, enabling the connection of potentially hundreds of Masters and Slaves in complex SoCs. However, it does add in an additional layer to managing IP. Time has to be spent supervising and generating IP outputs before they can be incorporated into the mainline project, and simulating the design can be a challenge in itself! One option that [...]
How to Migrate Windows CE to a new Embedded Linux Environment How to Migrate Windows CE to a new Embedded Linux Environment Our series Windows Embedded Compact Migration: What You Need to Know examines the primary issues around planning for the lack of support for Microsoft Embedded devices, as end of life dates for Windows CE and Mobile OS beckon ever closer. We kicked off the series with Part 1 when we looked at key considerations such as platform longevity and security. And Part 2 went into greater detail on OS migration, and developing your legacy WinCE environment for the future. So - straight into the final instalment and how to migrate Windows CE... Part 3: Application Development: Migration of Windows CE to new embedded [...]
ByteSnap in Consortium to Develop Pioneering V2G Technology ByteSnap in Consortium to Develop Pioneering V2G Technology We’re pleased to announce that ByteSnap and a consortium of partners have been awarded a two-year collaborative project, VIGIL (Vehicle-to-Grid Intelligent Control), under a Vehicle-to-Grid competition, funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The other partners in the Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) consortium are: Aston University Nortech Management Grid Edge VIGIL – spearheading the UK’s smart energy market The VIGIL project is focussed on developing a new communication and control platform for Vehicle-to-Grid/Building (V2G/V2B) systems: an off-vehicle system that controls how, when and the rate at which electric vehicle batteries are charged/discharged with [...]
