In order to address the vibrant and constantly expanding maker market, SST Sensing Ltd. has partnered up with Sparkfun. Together they have developed and simple to implement solution for single point liquid detection using infra-red technology. This highly reliable and accurate solution comprises an Optomax Digital liquid level switch which is connected to an Arduino board via the TTL output and powered by its 5V source. LEDs on the Arduino can be easily programmed to indicate if the sensor is/isn’t immersed by the liquid (and thus determine if liquid level is too high/low). Using this hardware, hobbyists are provided with plenty of scope to experiment, while professional engineers have the opportunity to evaluate their prototype before moving on to a full scale design.
The Optomax devices have compact dimensions that allow them to be deployed within environments where there is only limited available space. As relatively long cabling can be supported, the sensor can be placed in close proximity to a liquid without any risk of the accompanying electronics on the Arduino being damaged. Furthermore, as this solution is of an optical rather than a mechanical nature, issues such as the build-up of deposits, jamming, or wear and tear are avoided. A long term operational life span is thereby assured. [Continue reading →]

Plymouth Meeting, PA, July 31, 2012 – With new models of Android-based mobile handsets and tablets being introduced seemingly on a daily basis, the task of developing reliable, universal, model-independent Voice over IP (VoIP) applications (apps) lies somewhere between daunting and nearly impossible. Adaptive Digital Technologies’ (Adaptive Digital) VoIP Engine, equipped with a self-training acoustic canceller, is about to change that.
Developers of Android applications must consider the many models of devices both currently on the market as well as future product releases when designing their application in order for the app to work well on as many models as possible. In the case when VoIP functionality is part of the application, where voice quality and acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) is of paramount importance, developing an app that works across multiple devices is much trickier. Manually fine tuning the app to each individual model is an unending exercise in futility, leaving you the developer with the task of predicting which devices will bring in the most revenue.

David argues that an embedded open-architecture audio processor can hit the below 1 mW active power consumption mark.Typical audio transceivers now involve more sophisticated solutions, and demand for audio processors has never been higher. This stems partly from the popularity of convenient communication devices, such as mobile phones or even laptop computers using VoIP, and from the demand for clear communication free of echo and noise in all environments. Such communication quality is only possible thanks to the implementation of increasingly complex DSP algorithms that can improve audio performance under increasingly diverse and challenging conditions.
At the same time, design engineers have less freedom when it comes it to the amount of available system power and board space. As a result, the need to implement more complex digital audio processing solutions that consume less power and require less physical space is driving the development of audio processing techniques in general and embedded DSP-based solutions in particular.
