Most of the industries use control systems and automation entirely deals with it. It uses the information technologies and control system and reduces the human manual work in the production of goods and services. Most of the people say automation as a step beyond mechanization because in mechanization the human operators do the work with applying their muscles for work, but the automation has reduced it. Beyond manufacturing industries,it has been used in wide range of industries and the automation plays a major role in world economy and has replaced all manual systems. Most of the industries prefer for people who were well trained in plc automation training.A doubt may arise in your mind, why industries are looking for automation training? What is the advantage of this automation?
Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented, and high-level programming language. It was created by Guido van Rossum during 1985- 1990.Like Perl, Python source code is also available under the GNU General Public License (GPL). This tutorial gives enough understanding on Python programming language.
I2C is a very important protocol in industrial & embedded product development.I2C is a serial communication protocol that only requires two signal lines that was designed for communication between chips on a PCB. I2C was originally designed for 100kbps communication but faster data transmission modes have been developed over the years to achieve speeds of up to 3.4Mbit.
The I2C protocol has been established as an official standard, which provides for good compatibility among I2C implementations and good backward compatibility.
Controller Area Network or CAN protocol is a method of communication between various electronic devices like engine management systems, active suspension, ABS, gear control, lighting control, air conditioning, airbags, central locking etc embedded in an automobile. An idea initiated by Robert Bosch GmbH in 1983 to improve the quality of automobiles thereby making them more reliable, safe and fuel efficient. With the developments taking place in the electronics and semiconductor industry the mechanical systems in an automobile were being replaced by more robust electronics system which had an improved performance. New technologies, products and inventions with added or improved functions started to shape a complete new era for the automobile industry which promised more robust vehicles with use of electronics.
The MSP430 contains several families, from the low cost Value family to the most advanced F6xx family. Each family is usually targeted at a set of applications and contains a certain mix of peripherals. In a family, however, devices vary as far as the amount of Flash and RAM available. It is not unusual to develop using relatively large devices in a family, only to migrate down to reduce costs. Because of this, the tutorial will end up discussing several platforms, but will attempt to cover the lowest denominator first to make it accessible. The MSP430 Launchpad is the most accessible MSP430 platform and although the devices supported do not have all the peripherals of some of the mode advanced MSP430, it does cover so many peripherals that it makes it an ideal platform for starting.
