Shopping with and Aptinex

Last weekend I got chance to visit to Aptinex (Pvt.) Ltd.  Aptinex is a Sri Lankan startup company and they are mainly do Electronic circuit designing, PCB prototyping, mass-production of PCBs, selling electronic components, development kits, etc. In my last visit I order some dsPICs, Atmel ATmega MCUs and some SMD passive parts from them. They have good collection of development kits and programmers which include Arduino, MSP430 base kits, ARM development boards, Altera FPGA kits, etc.

Another interesting thing they have is electro-mechanical parts. They have various kinds of actuator modules, servo mechanisms, gear systems and controllers. I think this is good news to Sri Lankan DIY electronic community, because right now it is bit difficult to get these items in local electronic shops.

According to Aptinex, is there market place. operates in both real and virtual nature. Anyone can order Aptinex products through this site and they have nice and quick delivery system. One interesting feature in this site is “suggest an item” page. As per my discussion with them they don't have minimum order quantity and customers can order “special/rare” parts through them for prototyping purposes also.

I believe this is an excellent opportunity to Sri Lankan DIY electronic community and like to rate there effort with a clear 5 out of 5!

dose this site '' sell real genuine products.. i really don't think so.most of the stuff they sell are cheap ebay stuff.
and this 'Aptinex comapany' really do 'Embedded Design for complex systems'
'Digital Design using FPGAs'....

I buy electronic components, modules, robot stuff from more often. The product quality is superb. They deliver items to doorstep. That's a great convenience.

They have original Arduino boards, Original Texas Instruments DSP boards, etc... Basically these can't be found anywhere in Sri Lanka.

They also have 1% tolerance resistors, 1% SMD resistors, capacitors, etc... Basically they are the only guys who do these.

More than everything LankaTronics and Aptinex run by a set of genuine engineers. Not just a few sales guys.

Also, owner of this blog who has written this article had visited this company by himself.

Give a try without any risk.

Enable WebRTC on QtWebEngine for Raspberry Pi 3

WebRTC is a web technology to enable peer to peer communication in real-time. It mainly uses to create video conferencing and chat applications using web browsers. In this post, we describe how to enable this technology in QtWebEngine on Raspberry Pi 3 platform.

QtWebEngine is an embedded browser component which comes with the Qt framework. This component is based on Google Chromium browser and it supports most of the Chromium features including WebRTC. In PC, WebRTC applications run smoothly on QtWebEngine component. But in Raspberry Pi platform situation is different and none of the WebRTC application is work with the QtWebEngine. The only thing which we can see is a black box in an HTML5 video tag area. At the time of writing this problem exists in Qt version 5.6, 5.7 and 5.8.

BMP180 based USB atmospheric pressure monitor

We initially developed this USB atmospheric pressure monitor to study some operating characteristics of Bosch BMP180 sensor. BMP180 is a low-cost sensor for measuring barometric pressure and temperature. According to the datasheet this sensor can use to measure pressure ranging between 300hPa to 1100hPa. This sensor is introduced a couple of years back but still, it is popular due to lower cost and simplicity of its interface.

We did this unit to test the BMP180 sensor more accurately and to study its behaviors. This unit is based on PIC18F2550 microcontroller and the main reason to select this MCU is because of its built-in USB 2.0 interface.

To display sensor calibration data and it’s readings we did small windows application. This application display and plot temperature and pressure readings captured from the BMP180 sensor.

This unit is programmed to work as a USB HID device and no special device driver is required to use this device. We test this unit in Windows 10 environment.

Programmable light controller

The main objective of this project is to design a maintenance free and low-cost light which automatically turns on and off at the predetermined time of the day.

To meet the above requirement I designed this controller using ATmega8 MCU and DS1307 RTC. The driver stage of this light controller is intended to work with commonly available 7W LED modules.

The core component of this programmable light is ATmega8 low power CMOS microcontroller. The main reason to select this microcontroller is it’s lower cost and higher availability. Except for the above two reasons this microcontroller also bundled with a rich set of peripherals which including 23 GPIOs, 3 independent timers, Two-wire serial interface, EEPROM, etc.

Apart from ATmega8 microcontroller, this system uses DS1307 real time clock to maintain system time. Like ATmega8, DS1307 is also a very popular RTC in the market.

This controller is designed to work with a 24V DC power supply. The main reason to select 24V is that most of the…
