- DEMO from EE Live! 2014: 8-bit MCU runs inductive cooktop demo
8-bit MCU runs inductive cooktop demo. Microchip's Greg Robinson, 8-bit MCU director, shows Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo the new PIC16F170X/171X in a "smart" kitchen. This device not only takes the heat...it controls it!
- 8-bit MCUs Keep Getting Better With "Intelligent Analog" Features
8-bit MCUs just keep getting better and more integrated. Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo interviews Microchip's 8-bit MCU guru Greg Robinson. Among the new "intelligent analog" PIC16F170X/171X family's best features: two internal Op Amps and Zero Cross Detect--both analog features reduce board space and BOM cost. 10-bit ADC and 8-bit DACs plus a programmable pin crossbar make these 8-bangers some of the most innovative in the market.

- Handheld, multi-axis camera stabilization device utilizing MEMS gyro sensors
This device uses MEMS based rate gyro sensors mounted to a gimbaled camera rig to measure the angular rate of the camera's rotation. The gyro signals are amplified to drive DC servo motors coupled to the camera's rotational axes. As a gyro measures the cameras rotation about an axis, the corresponding servo motor applies an opposing torque on the platform to oppose camera rotation.
- Array of MEMS gravity sensors
Demo of ShapeAccelArray™ (SAA), a new monitoring technology that allows engineers to visualize movement in the ground or in solid structures, simply by connecting to the Internet.
