About I²C

I²C is a multi-master protocol that uses two signal lines. The two I²C signals are named ‘serial data’ (SDA) and ‘serial clock’ (SCL). There is no need of chip select (servant select) or compromise logic. Basically, any number of servants and any number of masters can be united onto these two signal lines and correspond to each other using a protocol that specifies:
7-bits servant addresses: every device united to the bus has got such a unique address;

I²C vs SPI - comparison

Bus topology / routing / resources

I²C needs two lines, while SPI officially defines at least four signals or more if more servants are added. Some informal SPI alternatives only need three wires, that is an SCLK, SS and a bi-directional MISO/MOSI line. Nevertheless, this exercise would require one SS line per servant. SPI lacks further work, logic and/or pins if a multi-master engineering must be built on SPI. The singular problem I²C when building a system is a finite machine address space on 7 bits, overwhelmed with the 10-bits enlargement.

Basics and Applications of Optical Sensor

Posted by:ReadyDaq in Fast Prototyping

An optical sensor is one that converts light rays into a computerized signal. To measure a physical quantity of light and, depending on the sort of sensor, translate it into a form that is readable by some unified measuring device is the purpose of an optical sensor. Optical sensors can be both external and internal. External sensors assemble and address an appropriate quantity of light, while internal sensors measure the bends and other small changes in direction.

Types of Optical Sensors

There are various kinds of optical sensors, and here are the most common types.

How do RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 compare to each other?

Posted by:ReadyDaq in Automation

RS-232 (ANSI/EIA-232 Standard) is the most widespread serial interface and it is used to ship as a standard component on most Windows-compatible desktop computers. Nowadays, it is more frequent to use RS-232 rather than using a USB and a converter. One downfall is that RS-232 only permits for one transmitter and one receiver on each line. RS- 232 also employs a Full-Duplex transmission method. Some RS-232 boards sold by National Instruments support baud rates up to 1 Mbit/s, but most devices are restricted to 115.2 kbit/s.
