UDOO X86 – 10x powerful than Raspberry Pi 3

#UDOOX86 is the New PC: the most powerful #x86 maker board ever and an #Arduino101-compatible platform, all embedded on the same board.

It is based on Quad Core 64-bit new-generation x86 processors made by Intel®, designed for the PC domain. Prodigious processors concentrated in 14 nm, with an amount of energy consumption of 5 or 6 Watt. funded via Kickstarter Campaign.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3

#RaspberryPi #ComputeModule3

Raspberry Pi has launched CM3 and CM3L

Compute Module 3 by Raspberry Pi in a more flexible form factor, intended
for industrial application. CM3 is the Raspberry Pi 3-based revision of the
original Compute Module.

The Compute Module contains the guts of a Raspberry Pi 3 (the BCM2837 processor and 1GB RAM) as well as a 4GB eMMC Flash device (which is the
equivalent of the SD card in the Pi).

A lite version of the compute Module 3 is also available. The CM3L brings the
SD card interface to the Module pins so a user can wire this up to an eMMC or SD card of their choice.

DIY variable tuning capacitor

For those who enjoy building radio projects, you may have noticed that variable capacitors are not as available as they once were. There was a time when all radio receivers contained at least one, but with the arrival of the varicap diode and frequency synthesizer, the traditional tuning capacitor is difficult to find. With a range of 5 pF to 27 pF, this multi-turn capacitor can be constructed using only six items. View the step by step guide

Super Capacitors as alternative to battery power storage

#SuperCapacitor as alternative to #battery #power #storage is already in many research labs. Here is some of the important features of it.

Supercap vs Battery

The most common battery technology is OK for today, but continuing forward we will need a battery that is safer, faster, cheaper, and denser than the current ones.

There is a global search for new energy storage technology, and this new
ultra capacity super capacitor has the potential to open the door to
unimaginably exciting developments,” said Dr. Brendan Howlin of the University
of Surrey.
