Get smart

An effective way to integrate internet connectivity. By Graham Pitcher.

Thanks to the ubiquity of the microcontroller, intelligence is now taken as read in all manner of products. The next step, if you are to believe the pundits, is to link together these intelligent devices. Evidence for this evolution is already available – the legendary internet enabled refrigerator is just one example of how network connectivity can be applied.

Planning connectivity is one thing: including it in your product can be entirely another. Anything which can add communications abilities to a product with the minimum of effort is likely to be welcomed and eDevices is aiming to capitalise on this demand with a range of products which meets this need.

The SmartStack range is being distributed in the UK by Flint and Ed Bryning, the company's marketing manager for lsi products, said: "The difference between SmartStack and other solutions is that designers don't have to write their own software or develop point to point communications systems – and designing your own communications system can require a significant investment."
