Generally, we perform many mathematical operations in our daily life such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and so on. Let us consider the multiplication process that can be performed in different methods. Different types of algorithms can be used to perform multiplication like grid multiplication method, long multiplication, lattice multiplication, peasant or binary multiplication, and so on. Binary multiplication is usually performed in digital electronics by using an electronic circuit called as binary multiplier. These binary multipliers are implemented using different computer arithmetic techniques. Booth multiplier that works based on booth algorithm is one of the most frequently used binary multipliers.
In our day-to-day life, we generally use several electrical and electronic devices or gadgets such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops, music players, and so on. Listening music is considered as a sense of enjoyment, comfort, and the best way of recreation irrespective of age. Hence, music players are most frequently used electronic gadgets for recreation purpose. There are different types of music players such as phonographs, gramophones, victrola model record players, vinyl record music players, tape recorders, cassette players, compact disc music players, digital music players, and MP3 players. Due to advancement in digital electronics, the technology has been developing at an enormous pace; as a result, most advanced music players are making their way in the market. For instance, an Arduino music player with several amazing features has already marked its presence felt. In this article, we are going to discuss about building an arduino music player with arduino based electrical projects. [Read more…]
The recent advancements in communication systems, embedded systems, automotive systems, etc., have developed many advanced technologies. But, still all these systems require devices or sensors that consume low power, small size with properties like linearity, affordability, reliability, and so on. All these requirement are provided by the advanced technology, namely MEMS technology. This article gives a brief description about RF power sensor based on MEMS technology. But, primarily one should know what MEMS technology is. [Read more…]
Communication systems play a major role in maintaining communication between humans or organizations or institutions or even people get entertainment programs or news or other television or radio broadcasting programs via wired or wireless communication systems. To overcome disadvantages of wired communications, advancement in technology has resulted in the development of most advanced wireless communication systems including wireless radio frequency technology, infrared technology, GSM technology, and so on. These wireless communication systems can be used to transmit different types of signals from transmitting end to receiving end. The control signal from transmitter is sent to the receiver which is connected to an object or device or vehicle that is to be remotely controlled. For example, IR remote is used to control TV remotely. Similarly, this article mentions about a wirelessly controlled robot controlled using radio frequency technology. [Read more…]
Power factor is the key factor to evaluate how effectively electric power in a power system is being used. If the power factor is high (unity), then the effectiveness of usage of electric power in a power system is more. As the power factor reduces, the less effectively electric power is being used in power system. There are different reasons due to which the power factor is being reduced, to improve power factor there are different power factor correction methods. Efficient and typically used power factor correction method utilizes capacitors for power factor improvement. But, primarily we must know what power factor is. [Read more…]
Communication between different platforms is necessary for every embedded system, since they use different OS for their project developments. It is used to control and coordinate the hardware among peripheral devices. Even though there are different kinds of operating systems,but the is very famous to execute a task with precise timings. The commonly found in industrial robotics, cameras, and communications. [Read more…]
Robots are automatic electro-mechanical devices that are controlled by an electronic circuitry and computer program. Electronic circuitry includes major electronics and electrical components such as resistor, inductor, transistors, etc. There are different types of robots that are classified based on their applications. Recent trends in robotic technology have been developing many advanced robots such as microbots, nanobots, surgical robots, rovers, autonomous robots, industrial robots, space robots, modular reconfigurable robots or self-reconfigurable modular robots, and so on. These robots are used in several robotics applications. As a special case we discuss about a few most popular industrial robot applications in this article. [Read more…]
There are different types of comparators such as electrical comparators, electronic comparators, mechanical comparators, optical comparators, sigma comparators, pneumatic comparators, and digital comparators, etc., which are used for different types of applications. Consider the comparators that are used in designing electrical and electronics projects circuits. The op amp comparator circuit is frequently used in many applications. In this article, we will discuss about how to use an op amp as a comparator. But, primarily we must know what is a comparator. [Read more…]
An embedded system is an electronic system that has a software and is embedded in computer hardware. It is programmable or non- programmable depending on the application. An Embedded system is defined as a way of working, organizing, performing single or multiple tasks according to a set of rules.In an embedded system, all the units assemble and work together according to the program. Examples of embedded systems include numerous products such as microwave ovens, washing machine, printers, automobiles, cameras, etc. These systems use microprocessors, microcontrollers as well as processors like DSPs. This article gives an overview of what is an embedded system and types of embedded system. [Read more…]
There are many low-cost options to keep your energy bill low and to make homes, even industries as energy-efficient. One of the major option is to go for most abundant solar energy source to power up homes and industries. Over the past few years usage of solar power utilization is increased significantly and is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. As cleanest and more sustainable energy, solar energy system is familiar with a wide variety of applications like solar power plants, spacecraft, home appliances, handheld calculator and so on.
