USB-SD-Mux: EMC Testing

Today Jonas and I went to our EMC testing lab to continue the measurements needed to certify electromagnetic compatibility for the USB-SD-Mux.

To make it short: It has passed the radiation tests. In the end we found out that it wasn't the USB-SD-Mux itself that caused us a lot of headache. We are now quite confident that most radiation was caused by the system we used to stimulate the USB-SD-Mux. In the end we had the stimulation-box (containing a Beagle Bone Black) hidden behind multiple absorber-panels beneath the measurement table. This way we were able to dampen enough noise to pass tests. It seems for our next measurements we need to find something other than a Beagle Bone Black for that.

This brings us a lot closer to finally bring the USB-SD-Mux to you. But testing is not completely done: Next step is to pass the RF-immunity tests. We keep our fingers crossed!

First Steps using the candleLight

So you went and got yourself one of our fancy rocket-penguin branded CandleLight dongles or, being the die hard hacker you are, went and soldered one up in your toaster oven labeled "not food safe". What's next then? How do you use this thing? Let's answer these question by grabbing a Raspberry Pi and exploring some of the possibilities.

Showcase: Remote Working

Zur Projektarbeit mit unseren Kunden gehört die Arbeit mit Prototypen-Hardware. Da wir grundsätzlich parallel für mehrere Kunden an vielen verschieden Projekten arbeiten, bedeutet das eine Flut von Prototypen auf den Schreibtischen unserer Entwickler. Spätestens wenn im Team an einem Prototypen gearbeitet werden soll oder längere Zeit nicht aktiv an einem Projekt gearbeitet wird, muss die Hardware regelmäßig umgezogen und am neuen Arbeitsplatz verkabelt werden. Erschwerend kommt hinzu, dass die Entfernung zwischen unseren Entwickler-Schreibtischen durch die aktuelle Homeoffice-Situation, nicht wie gewohnt in Metern, sondern in Kilometern gemessen wird.
