"The first year of a new publication is always exciting, but Embedded Technology Journal first year has been nothing short of stellar. We began, of course, with modest-sized audiences mulling our strange stories about putting tiny little computers into toasters and such. People pondered processors, studied software, meditated about memories, brushed up on busses, wrestled with RTOS, and fumbled with FPGAs. We covered applications ranging from smart phones to avionics and touched on some truly unique systems like golf radar and digital scarecrows."

Tibbits and Tibbo - Modular and Programmable

The Tibbo Project System is a modular, configurable and simple to implement mini automation platform.This appears to be interesting concept both for Instrumentation and Automation. It could be easily tried for Building Automation and Energy Automation for Small Offices and Homes. It may also help in Custom Manufacturing Machine Development.

Tibbits and Tibbo - Modular and Programmable

Tibbits (as in "Tibbo Bits") are blocks of prepackaged I/O functionality   housed in color-coded plastic shells. Want an ADC? There is a Tibbit for   this. 5V power supply? Got that! RS232/422/485 port? PoE? PWM? We   have these, and many other Tibbits, too.

Tibbits and Tibbo - Modular and Programmable

Each TPP can accommodate multiple Tibbit modules and connectors. Only bare essentials are provided on each boards: There is a CPU, an   Ethernet port, and a very simple power supply. The rest of the board’s   functionality is defined by what Tibbits you plug in. There are several   TPP “sizes” that differ in the number of Tibbits they can accommodate.
