One of the highlights of this edition is the Swiss Pi – the Swiss army knife for the Raspberry Pi. This article looks at the extremely popular single board computer and its limitations, and describes the Swiss Pi HAT that aims to eliminate those shortcomings and provide a number of extra features, including a realtime clock and an RS-485 interface. Another exciting feature of this edition is the Unilab Mk.2. Six years ago, Elektor designed and published an extraordinarily popular circuit called the Unilab – a compact circuit unit with foolproof design for DIY construction. This edition features the long awaited successor – the Unilab Mark 2. Definitely not one to miss.
Also included is the SDR Reloaded – an article detailing and exploring the software for the SDR shield, as well as the LEDitron – a seven segment display made from LED filaments with a variety of exciting features.
Edition 5/2016 maintains the LEARN, SHARE and DESIGN pillars, so you can easily utilise the layout to access exactly what you want to, when you want to. The edition is as always jam packed with Labs Projects, reviews, articles, Retronics and much more to keep you entertained for hours on end.
This edition also provides exciting articles exploring the i-Baxandall, the fifth instalment of Eagle Tips & Tricks, and Peculiar Parts the series: Magic Eye Indicators. Towards the back of the magazine is the usual dose of Retronics, this time on the  MOS Clock 5314 from 1974. Plenty to keep you entertained for hours on end.  And of course we have included all of our updates and news stories to peak your interest and keep you in the loop of what’s going on here at Elektor.
