This project shows a Flowcode and E-blocks based weather station capable of reading local temperature and humidity with 2 remote thermo-hygrometer sensors. The local board also incorporates a real time clock.
We know how much everyone loves LED lighting at the minute, so we thought we would create this article using Flowcode 6 and E-blocks; to show you how to create mood lighting! The objective of this project is to design and build a microcontroller-based Mood Light using an inexpensive tri-colour RGB LED.
LED’s have always been a staple component in programming microcontrollers, they are most commonly used as indicators that elements of a program are functioning correctly. However, more people are realising that high powered LED’s have a multitude of uses beyond the simple applications of their lower powered brethren. In this article Ben shows us how to design your circuit to utilise these functional devices.
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.
At Matrix we provide rugged and reliable technology to help teach and learn in education, and also to rapidly develop working systems for industry.

Part of my job is to commission new production machinery and to work closely with the rest of the team to ensure that everyone can use the new machines as safely as possible.
We recently had a chance meeting with a UK based company called Wireless Things (formerly known as Ciseco) who introduced us to their range of products.
Last year we created a simple christmas tree project with 15 single colour LEDs. This time, we have revamped it to include 15 full RGB LEDs and a small speaker! In this article we provide an overview of our latest christmas tree project.

This is our third and final blog post relating to 'The Internet of Things'. This week we are discussing the simulation capabilities of Flowcode 6 coupled with our theme...the internet of things. The TCP base component provides the simulated network communications which is then built into the higher level embedded components to provide the simulation functionality should the user want it.
Continuing our theme of the Internet of Things (IoT) blog articles, we will this week demonstrate the simplicity of using Flowcode to implement an internet connected Temperature and Humidity sensor.
In this blog article we will demonstrate how quickly and simply an example application of an IoT device can be implemented with Flowcode. The example task is to be able to turn on or off any device via relay contacts controlled by a microcontroller connected via the internet. The interface will be a simple web page.
