A Clear-Cut Explanation To Embedded Linux..!!

Embedded Linux is kind of a confusing term that is used nowadays to describe a wide variety of devices. With the advent of single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi and Beagle bones running Linux, and with ARM processors becoming more powerful than ever while remaining very power efficient,  Embedded Linux has become an upcoming field in electronics and computer science with plenty of opportunities to build really powerful and intelligent systems. In this article lets learn what Embedded Linux is and what are the possible applications that Embedded Linux Devices can bring about. Understanding “Embedded” & “Linux” Let’s start by...

Where To Go After Arduino? 2 Paths For You To Pick From!

Arduino is a lovely little ecosystem where most of us have started our electronics journey. I still remember the moment I got my first LED blinking program working! Since then we have done several projects using Arduino. Some of those we by following some online tutorials while others were produced out of our own ideas with a little bit of online research. But there comes a point in every inventor’s journey where we have simply outgrown Arduino. If you are reading this post then you are at the same place where I was some years back. I wasn’t sure where...

Quad-SPI, Everything You Need To Know!

If you have just mastered this SPI interface, then looking at Dual and Quad SPI can be overwhelming. I had to read several pdfs to wrap my mind around this concept. In this article, I am presenting all the useful and interesting facts on Quad-SPI that I have learned through my research. What is Quad-SPI? It is a serial interface, where 4 data lines are used to read, write and erase flash chips. Quad-SPI Quad-SPI, also known as QSPI, is a peripheral that can be found in most modern microcontrollers. It has been specifically designed for talking to flash chips...

Profiling of Embedded Code Explained Through Examples!

I remember the time when I first heard the term Profiling, I could barely write source code without googling every 10 minutes at that time and when I heard about profiling, I couldn’t help but tell myself that I will never be able to master programming! Then after a few years I became very comfortable with programming, I came across the term again, but this time I was not scared anymore! So went out and did some research about it and what I found out was shocking, the concept of profiling was not so difficult, it was just another technical...
