drb electronic offers consulting in the field of Mechatronics. Special expertise is available for
Furthermore we develop building blocks for innovative embedded system solutions. Our goal is to design embedded systems which feature
- open source
- robustness eg. to EMC (electromagnetic compatibility), shock, vibration and industrial protection
- cost optimized design
- compliance to required standards
pyffau 0.1.2 released. The framework now features debugger control of tasks including breakpoints and variable evaluation.
drb introduces pyffau, a python framework for automation running e. g. on DRB_PIADDON_IPC and DRB_RPI_IPC.
In a first step the framework provides
- objects to access all board peripherals (Digital IO, Analog IO, RTC, CAN, RS232)
- an editor panel to create and run up to 4 python tasks including syntax highlighting, file management and flow control

DRB_RPI_IPC is available. It comprises Raspberry Pi Model B+ and DRB_PIADDON_IPC in a robust and space saving housing. Soon available will be a python Software framework for generic soft real time automation applications.
The new Raspberry Pi 2 is on sale for $35/30€. It features a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM and the performance will be around 6 times of Model B+ while being pin compliant. Besides various Linux distributions Windows 10 can be run as operating system. The price/performance relation seems to be unbeatable and many control hardware suppliers will need to rethink their platform used up to now. DRB_PIADDON_PLC is compatible to Raspberry Pi 2.
DRB_PIADDON_IPC is a controller built upon the Raspberry Pi Model B+. It can be used e. g. for home automation. For details please visit the Products page.
DRB_PICOMPMOD_IPC is an industrial and home automation controller built upon the Rasperry PI Compute Module. For details please visit the Products page.
