The November issue of Elektor Magazine has reached newsstands across the world and we’ve filled it with all kinds of projects and updates to get you geared up for the New Year.
Readers, start your engines, because we’re opening up this issue of Elektor Magazine with our CAN Tester project, which has all the features required for performing all kinds of experiments and tests on a CAN bus with the additional option of connecting up to an existing CAN bus to monitor data and identify flaws for a variety of vehicles.
Our Multichannel Temperature Logger is a simple and practical handheld project which will allow you to log up to six (time-stamped) temperature readings. All the information is written as .csv and can be processed on your PC, and local control comes in the form of an LCD and a keypad, letting you record temperatures at any time, any place.
For something that’s fun and a little festive; whether it’s for a model train set or some elaborate decorations, you can learn how to create modular, PC controlled LED lighting for model buildings. With up to 250 modules controlled from a single PC, you’ll be able to really up the novelty-factor and add a little magic to that mini railroad.
Based on feedback from our readers, we’re publishing an update to our Elektor Linux Board. We’ve added LAN and RTC to it, so there’s never been a better time for beginners to jump on the embedded Linux bandwagon!
