A: Jon the 'Secret Weapon' is so interesting tool. Wow, it's cool! Could you tell me a little more about your experience using it?
A: Sure. I use the printer to give me information about when the MCU reaches a specific point in my code, the value of a variable, to print a test message, and so on. I use a UART output and simply load the ASCII bytes into the UART one after the other. It takes a small bit of software to change an 8-bit value into two hex characters, but it's not difficult to do. Decimal numbers take more work, so I stick with hex. Likewise with text messages. I store them in an array and pass the array pointer to the UART code, which them transmits the characters one by one. I hope that helps.
Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this year’s Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
