    • Solar Energy Conversion using MIAC and Flowcode


      This work introduces an approach to the design of a boost converter for a photovoltaic (PV) system using the MIAC. The converter is designed to step up the variable voltage provided by a solar panel to a stable 24V, without any batteries. The output of the boost converter is monitored by the MIAC and used to adjust the duty cycle of a PWM control signal of the boost converter.


      • MIAC PLC and RC5 Remote Control using Flowcode


        The RC5 communications protocol developed by Philips is one that is in common use and is available as an option in most programmable handsets. This article will explain RC5 and by using the versatile MIAC device and the Flowcode programming language; show how you can use this protocol for your own projects.


        • Arduino Based GPS Tracking System


          When you're out and about it can sometimes be handy to create a log of where you've been, what speeds you have been doing and how long you have been travelling. For example monitoring your workforce while they are out and about in their company vehicles, or preserving a record of that bike ride of Olympic proportions for posterity. The Matrix TSL EB056 GPS E-block allows for a very flexible approach to adding GPS functionality to your embedded device.
