I understand that some silicon vendors provide a PID on request such as Microchip, unfortunately I can't see that ST have this sort of policy. What do people do here rather than pay $5k per year for the privilege of 'owning/renting' a VID/PID combination? I have come across MCS Electronics who sell PIDs for a withdrawn VID. -- Mike Perkins Video Solutions Ltd www.videosolutions....

Any suggestions how to improve its visibility? Is there a *similar* display that is good outdoor? Here similar means I should make minor changes (hw and sw) to adapt the current design to the new displa...

In this webinar, Mender.io will discuss some of the considerations in designing an update system. They will demonstrate best approaches for safely deploying over-the-air (OTA) software updates for IoT devices without downtime or service disruption on a Toradex Colibri iMX7 SoM, powered by the NXP® i.MX 7 processor, with raw NAND. Mender.io is an end-to-end open source OTA so

I'm using facilities to manage timestamps of events. The platform is ARM Cortex-M3 (LPC1788) and I'm using MCUXpresso IDE (so arm-gcc toolchain). I configured the IDE to use newlib-nano library. It's quite easy to use a time_t variable for a timestamp and use gmtime()/mktime() function to transform the number of seconds from epoch to a broken-down time structure (struct tm, wit
