See ByteSnap's Demo at Embedded World 2019 SnapUI on QNX 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, optimised for QNX. Our interactive cooker control demo will be running the latest iteration of SnapUI 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 [...]

ByteSnap in Consortium to Develop Pioneering V2G Technology

2019-02-20T14:55:44+00:00

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 respect to local substation constraints and EV/building energy [...]

Microcontroller Design: Optimising Power Consumption in 12 Easy Steps

2018-10-09T12:12:53+00:00

Long battery lifetime is a frequent requirement in embedded product design - particularly in microcontroller design. For instance, we designed an animal tracking product that could run for four years using a 1/3 of an AA cell.  Microcontrollers are getting ever more meagre in their power demands. However, consumers’ expectations of features are growing in equal measure, frequently cancelling out the gains. This can best be seen in the battery life of mobile phones, which, currently, appears to be on the decline. The unsuspecting engineer faces traps and pitfalls aplenty when designing a low power circuit. Must-have tips to remember are always useful - read on for our design team’s top twelve... 12 Easy Steps to Optimising Power in Your Microcontroller Design 1.  Optimise Pull-Up Resistors When reducing the [...]
