Improving Battery Life in Low Power Embedded Applications, Part 1: Basics

As portable devices become more capable, powerful and smaller, people expect them to have more features, perform better, and replace the functionality of multiple devices. However, while embedded performance has skyrocketed, battery performance has s...


Android Connectivity using the Android Open Accessory Development Kit

With Android operating system’s market share growing rapidly, the appeal for developers to release their applications on this platform has never been higher. Android is quite developer friendly, and as it matures the variety of applications has...


DMC Attends TI's Technology Day

Like many other students, I considered my TI-89 graphing calculator to be a lifeline during high school calculus and beyond. That device (which I still have and use today) was my first formal introduction to Texas Instruments, and since then I&r...


Revealing the Hidden Awesomeness of the TI LaunchPad

TI (Texas Instruments) is awesome - I've always known it. What I like the most is their extremely low-cost ($4.30, who beats that?) Launchpad development kit that includes 2 "value line" (pronounced "super-cheap") mi...


NI Week 2012 Wrap Up - Customizing Windows Embedded

March Programming Madness - The Bracket

With the final few plays of the super bowl still fresh in mind, we enter March on the verge of another of the greatest events in sports, the March Madness of Programming Languages. This epic, world-renowned event (not to be confused with the sim...


Exploring Altium: Document Management

"Documentation" The word alone sends shivers down the spine of even the most grizzled engineer and fuels nightmares for the rest of us. Maybe it’s not quite that bad, but keeping accurate and effective documentation is a critical ...


Exploring Altium: Pin Swapping

Since joining the DMC team, I’ve had the opportunity to contribute to a wide variety of awesome projects and learn several new technologies. During a recent embedded design project, I was tasked with converting our circuit schematic to a printe...


Automatic Remote Updates and the GHI Electronics EMX

Our first experience with the .NET Micro Framework (NETMF) was on GHI Electronic's Embedded Master platform, using the .NET Micro Framework 3.0.  We recently had an opportunity to use the GHI's next generation replacement for the Embedde...


Video Demonstration of BMS Test Stand Basic Capabilities

Recently DMC put together another BMS Validation Test Stand, with 100+ Battery Cell Simulation Channels, 50 Temperature Sensor Simulation Channels, and a variety of other IO channels for testing the BMS inside a PHEV battery pack. Before we shippe...
