The cellular IoT market is in a significant state of flux in terms of standards, and as we have seen in the past, betting wholesale on one or the other is a risk. Here we start to explore the Cellular IoT sector.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
New EU Radio Equipment Directive: 5 key things you need to know We have updated this post, so please head over to if you want to know what's new in 2019: https://www.bytesnap.com/eu-red-2019/ 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. Now, our community has the European Union’s new Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED) to grapple with. The RED came into force on 13th June 2016, replacing the Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (R&TTE Directive 1995/5/EC). With a significant bearing on how manufacturers gain a CE Mark, due to changes between the two frameworks, it’s crucial to fully understand these regulatory differences to avoid time and cost [...]
