Easy Way to Design an Automatic Driverless Train

Every one in the metro cities like Kolkata, Delhi enjoying the luxuries of the metro train ever spared a thought about the train? No, then let me give you a brief idea about the driverless automatic driven and controlled train. But before that let us have a brief recall about types of metro automation. The Driver Controlled Mode: In conventional modes, it’s the manual driver who drives the train and control ...

The future of IC design

To celebrate 60 years of EDN, we’re looking into the future to predict what advancements will be made in IC Design in the next 60 years. By 2076 3-D room-temperature, superconducting, quantum, neuromorphic, and photonic mixed-signal devices will be the common denominator for all integrated circuit designs. Design tools will be so sophisticated that even novice designers will be able to mix and match these t ...

Re-Doing my Design for a circuit to control an invention using a Microchip PIC microcontroller chips.

In a previous article I described how I designed the circuitry to control functions of the asparagus harvester.  After bread boarding up a test circuit and doing some initial programming I decided a re-do was in order. I found I had a lot of unnecessary redundancy and I also decided to put the air regulation function on a separate chip from the main controller chip.  I did so because I want the air regulati ...

WEB-BASED CIRCUIT DESIGN & ANALYSIS

Microcontroller ( MCU ) circuits TINACloud supports a lot of PIC, AVR, 8051 and ARM microcontrollers; new MCUs are constantly being added. You can see and modify the program running in the processor and, of course, you can create your own code. There are two ways of providing the program for microcontrollers in TINACloud. You can use the binary code and debug file made by a standard compiler (e.g. MPLAB for ...

LED car headlight design can benefit from thermal simulation, says Mentor

The exterior conceals new technology behind the bezels that make possible such features as adaptive beams and LED matrix beams, for example. Often, each LED has its own lens that is held by a fixture, and light guides with small saw-tooth structures to direct the light to the road and to the external viewer are used more often. All of these new structural changes and components have caused the overall compl ...
