USB.org - Universal Serial Bus and Wireless USB

USB.org - Universal Serial Bus

Universal Serial Bus (USB) connects more than computers and peripherals. It has the power to connect you with a whole new world of PC experiences.

USB Implementers Forum, Inc. is a non-profit corporation founded by the group of companies that developed the Universal Serial Bus specification.

Wireless USB - Wireless Extension to USB

Wireless USB is the first high-speed wireless personal interconnect technology to meet the needs of multimedia consumer electronics, PC peripherals, and mobile devices.

Wireless USB performance is targeted at 480Mbps at 3 meters and 110Mbps at 10 meters.

Wireless USB Software and Hardware Tools

2008

I had to put some files from my USB ThumbDrive to iPod. That needed a Turn on, on my computer and then plugging things on, and a transfer.

I saw this innovation earlier. Wireless USB - Wireless Extension to USB. And also a USB Drive like product.

I feel this type of thing can be made for stand alone iPod, extra storage or archive. No need to turn on PC.

Also, i think, there may be a need (?), for a very small, tiny Wi-Fi Router with 100 GB storage, media and cache management. That can serve 2 or 3 iPods and 1 or 2 Netbooks.

CAN Controller Area Network in Automation

CAN (Controller Area Network) is a serial bus system, which was originally developed for automotive applications in the early 1980's. The CAN protocol was internationally standardized in 1993 as ISO 11898-1 and comprises the data link layer of the seven layer ISO/OSI reference model.

CAN Controller Area Network in Automation

CANopen is a CAN-based higher layer protocol. It was developed as a standardized embedded network with highly flexible configuration capabilities.

In the year 1992, several companies founded the CAN in Automation (CiA) non-profit group, in order to provide technical, product and marketing information.

CANopen-based dust-filtering systems

CANopen-based dust-filtering systems

Hesch (Germany) has developed an industrial dust-filtering systems. The HE 5750 host-controller provides a CANopen NMT master interface to communicate to the sub-layered valve units operating the dust-filters. The entire system can be controlled by means of the Profibus or Modbus interfaces. The embedded filter control software supports the reduction of emission values and energy costs.

The valve controllers are uses to pulse solenoid valves in industrial dust extraction technology. They are controlled via an embedded CANopen network by means of the HE 5750 host-controller. The NMT slave units are attributed locally and technically to one filter chamber each. This concept adapts to any desired number of filter chambers and valves.

Electronic Components Industry Association - ECIA

The National Electronic Distributors Association (NEDA) and the Electronic Components Association (ECA) have consolidated forces to form the Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA), bringing together all of the elements of the electronic components supply chain - component manufacturers, their distributors and their independent manufacturer representatives.

Electronic Components Industry Association - ECIA

ECIA holds accreditation rights through ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, under the mark "EIA". Any standards committee choosing to develop an American National Standard may process the work through the ECIA accreditation.

"The Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) works to promote and improve the business environment for the authorized sale of electronic components."

Open Source Hardware - OSHW Draft Definition

OSHW Draft Definition 0.3 is based on the Open Source Definition for Open Source Software and draft OSHW definition 0.2, further incorporating ideas from the TAPR Open Hardware License.

Open Source Hardware - OSHW Draft Definition

Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is a term for tangible artifacts - machines, devices, or other physical things - whose design has been released to the public in such a way that anyone can make, modify, distribute, and use those things.

Open Source Hardware - OSHW Draft Definition

Open source hardware is hardware whose design is made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell the design or hardware based on that design. The hardware's source, the design from which it is made, is available in the preferred format for making modifications to it. Ideally, open source hardware uses readily-available components and materials, standard processes, open infrastructure, unrestricted content, and open-source design tools to maximize the ability of individuals to make and use hardware.

Adapteva - Andreas Olofsson at OHS

Making parallel computing easy to use has been described as “a problem as hard as any that computer science has faced”. With such big challenges ahead, we need to make sure that every programmer has access to cheap and open parallel hardware and development tools.

Open source hardware gives people the freedom to control their technology while sharing knowledge and encouraging commerce through the open exchange of designs.
