Make a Podcast Machine: record podcasts on a Raspberry Pi

Although it’s a little short on memory when it comes to heavy-duty multi-track audio editing, a passively cooled Pi runs completely silently, which makes it easy to create clean voice recordings with minimal background noise. These instructions will work perfectly on any Debian-based Linux distro, such as Raspbian or Ubuntu MATE. As you’re going to be recording raw PCM audio, we recommend using a reasonably large microSD card if you... Read more

How Eclipse is advancing IoT development

Eclipse may not be the first open source organization that pops to mind when thinking about Internet of Things (IoT) projects. After all, the foundation has been around since 2001, long before IoT was a household word, supporting a community for commercially viable open source software development. Read more

IoT Cybersecurity: What's Plan B?

In August, four US Senators introduced a bill designed to improve Internet of Things (IoT) security. The IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2017 is a modest piece of legislation. It doesn’t regulate the IoT market. It doesn’t single out any industries for particular attention, or force any companies to do anything. It doesn’t even modify the liability laws for embedded software. Companies can continue to sell IoT devices with whatever... Read more

State machines in Arduino

I was looking for ways to do finite state machines in Arduino code. Forgive me here C and C++ programmers, for I do not dwell within your hallowed halls. This one, from SparkFun, is the most understandable one I have found yet, although I have no idea how long case statements take to execute. Before … This story continues at State machines in Arduino Or just coverage at Electronics Weekly Read more
