I’m currently working at a custom messaging system, which will users to exchange encrypted messages. To achieve this, I bought a ENC28J60 powered ethernet module, which can be used to connect an Arduino to the Internet (or any other microcontroller that supports SPI). In this short article I want to show you how to connect this module and get it up and running in no time! Continue reading How to connect your Arduino to the Internet with the ENC28J60
In this article I’ll take a look at how to write Windows 10 apps and I’ll guide you through the steps you’ll have to take to create a runnable ‘Hello World’ example app.
Please note, that this will not be a programming tutorial. We have written one here. Our programming tutorial series is written for Java, however C# is very similar to Java. This article should just give you a quick overview on how to write an app for Windows 10. Continue reading Windows 10 apps in C# – Hello World Tutorial
Today is Friday again (thank god!) and therefore you have two full days of free time. If the weather is bad or you just don’t feel like doing physical activities this weekend, you can always just sit down and learn something you wanted to be able to do for a long time. So get active (not in a physical way) and use your spare 48 hours to learn something new. This article will present you our most popular tutorials you might have missed!
In this part of the series I’m going to show you how to write a very basic C Host-Application that will run a program on the PRU of the BBB. This part of the series assumes, that you have basic C skills. I’ll also include some useful links to the official ti API. Everything can be done with the tools, that come with the BBB, no Code Composer Studio (CCS) oder Eclipse needed, but you can use them, if you want to.

This part covers the device tree overlay for our little Hello-World Example. I will not cover linux device trees here or why they are useful, because other articles in the interweb already contain great articles about this topic. I will give you some links at the end of this page. Continue reading BeagleBone Black programmable realtime unit (PRU) Hello World – Part 1
Introduction – A warning
After I received my BBB, earlier this week, I was absolutely keen on using the Programmable Realtime (execution) Unit (or PRU), which is included in the main ARM-CPU of the BBB. But I soon realised that this is absolutely no fun topic to start with, especially if you are new to programming or embedded architectures. So this is an official warning: IF YOU ARE NEW TO EMBEDDED HARDWARE, DO NOT START WITH PRU PROGRAMMING! Start with something, that is more fun, easier to learn and where you can actually see the progress you made. Because PRU programming might be pretty frustrating in the beginning and there is almost no community support or tutorials, you must be willing to learn this, so let’s get started.
