Upgrading Your Control System: Replacing your existing PLC with Arduino OPTA
Replacing your current PLC with an Arduino OPTA can be a cost-effective and efficient choice for many industrial automation applications. The benefits of affordability, flexibility, and a supportive community make it an appealing option.
Modern Embedded Firmware Development Practices in the Warehouse Automation Industry
This blog explores the multifaceted realm of modern embedded firmware development, as well as the innovative testing practices that help identify and mitigate bugs early in the process, leading to cost savings and more robust systems.
10 Pillars of Modern Embedded. Pillar 4: Effective Testing
Testing needs to be appropriate, effective, and evolve with the project. That means it needs to verify the appropriate things, meeting the business goals and needs through a multifaceted testing strategy. It needs to be effective, minimizing the likelihood of bugs while minimizing the time spent on testing. It needs to evolve as the project changes and not grow uncontrollably.
10 Pillars of Modern Embedded. Pillar 3: Automated
Firmware development teams can eliminate tedious tasks, reduce (human) errors, and enforce standards easily–all while improving the quality, reliability and cost of the product. By identifying common errors early, automation allows frequent testing and, when ready, efficient deployment to production.
