How SalvageData salvaged my business trip in Chicago

It’s amazing how things have their own way of turning out, irrespective of how well you plan ahead for them. My business trips always tend to be great lessons about the importance of not assuming anything and preempting situations. My travel to Chicago for an all-important client presentation about my company’s manufacturing capabilities proved to be no different, and I was soon struggling with troubles I’d not anticipated earlier. Problem with my Drive It was only a stroke of luck when I thought I’d go through my final edit in Chicago rather than waiting for reaching New York where the presentation was supposed to happen a week later. I had barely plugged my portable hard drive into the laptop through its cable when I noticed how it was taking longer than usual for the laptop to detect the drive. My heart was in my mouth as the wait grew longer. It was only when a strange gurgling sound started coming out from the hard drive that I realized that trouble had struck. It was with a heart dripping with fear… Continue reading

Review of 2013 and meeting 2014

Hello embedds.com readers. Hope you had a great 2013. This is not a tradition to do last year review, but at some point this might be interesting to for me and for some of you. So lets do a quick look at what we have here. First of all we currently have over 2480 post here in embedds.com. We also have collected over 1650 comments. Most of posts are reviews of embedded project found on internet. Short project reviews was the main goal of our site. We try to post at least one review per day and seems we are still keeping this promise. From the current point of view we see that many websites are doing something similar – they find something cool, make note about this on their blog and give a link to original source. We hope that reviews are not just website filler, but also benefit to some of you as quick categorized project database/look-up. When you run out of project ideas or need to find whats already done then why not to look at it.… Continue reading

Gas Laser Science Project: A Short history & Safety

Children of every age who have to come up with an original idea for a science project typically run into the same problem every year. In fact, to them, it probably seems as if someone has built or experimented with a portion of every idea they come up with for a project. For example: The erupting volcano with streaming lava? It’s been done. Build a flying saucer that proves UFOs are possible? That’s been done too. Make a potato light up a light bulb? You guessed it – that’s also been done– many times, in fact. A New Science Project Using an Old Idea It certainly does seem like students from previous years have built – or attempted to build – every idea you’ve had for a science project, doesn’t it? You should approach the problem a bit differently in this case – have you given any thought to: ·  Recreating a previously built science project ·  Recreating a previously built technological device ·  Inventing something to solve an everyday problem Inventions always make great science projects, especially if the… Continue reading

Remote Terminal Unit for Wireless SCADA Systems

When it comes to the management of energy systems, optimal design plays a key role. The project that’s going to be described in this post relies on the usage of Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems along with remote terminal unit. The design has a large scale development of remote terminal unity which is an important part of the SCADA system. The focus of the design can be varied using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) or the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The benefit of using FPGA based remote terminal units is that the designer gets better encryption, radio and memory support. The innovation achieved in this model is similar to the that of the Rogowski coil and other similar models. The SCADA system requires field data interface devices which are referred to as the remote terminal unit or RTU. The RTU is able to transfer the data from the interface devices to control units. The interface is known as Tele control interface (TCI). The master terminal unit or MTU is a server collection that allows simulations to run. The… Continue reading

How will Ubuntu for Android perform in terms of gaming?

At the World Mobile Congress in 2012, there was a new arrival in the world of mobile operating systems. Ubuntu has long been known in personal computer circles and has recently become a more accessible and popular version of itself. One of the main reasons is that at this conference Ubuntu for Android was revealed. The interesting thing about Ubuntu for Android is that it offers everything that its big brother can offer. It runs alongside Android, meaning that there’s no need to switch operating systems to do different tasks, and it adapts to suit whatever you might happen to connect it to. If you wire it to a PC monitor it will adjust to become the fully featured Home PC version with no need to install or adjust anything. When connected to a TV, the OS will convert to a TV compatible version. For gaming this is huge news since it means that you can carry around your entire computer setup on a smartphone. The games you will be able to play will be limited, obviously. Ubuntu for Android… Continue reading
