How to Use GSM/3G/4G in Embedded Linux Systems


Wednesday, May 18, 2016

LinuxEmbedded devices connected to the internet are growing every day. In many cases, these devices will be installed somewhere without a wire or wireless network connection. A good way to keep the devices connected to the internet in these situations is by seeking mobile network coverage. Therefore, this blog post will present the necessary configurations to connect a device running Linux to the internet through the PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) link.

Using Node.js and the Express Framework to Access the Colibri VF61 GPIO via Web


Monday, April 25, 2016

ColibriThis article is meant for anyone who wishes to quickly start developing an embedded Linux web application with access to the hardware GPIO, so that the user can control and/or monitor a system remotely. The application developed here, is based on the Colibri VF61 COM (Computer on Module) by Toradex + the Iris Carrier Board, and a PCB with LEDs and switches. The main goals are to walk the reader through the process of developing Node code for accessing the GPIO via filesystem, building a simple yet user-friendly UI, and using the Express framework for hosting a minimal webserver that communicates with the client-side application by AJAX calls.
