  2. The Wi-R protocol is a non-radiative near-field communication technology that uses Electro-Quasistatic (EQS) fields for communication enabling the body to be used as a conductor and that consumes up to 100x less energy per bit compared to Bluetooth. In a sense, Wi-R combines wireless and wired communication. Wi-R itself only has a wireless range of 5 to 10cm, but since it also uses the body to which the Wi-R device is attached, the range on the conductor is up to 5 meters. While traditional wireless solutions like Bluetooth create a 5 to 10-meter field around a person, the Wi-R protocol creates a body area network (BAN) that could be used to connect a smartphone to a pacemaker, smartwatch, and/or headphones with higher security/privacy and longer battery life. One of the first Wi-R chips is Ixana YR11 with up to 1Mbps data rate, and they are working on a YR21 [...] The post The Wi-R protocol relies on body for data communication, consumes up to 100x less than Bluetooth appeared first on CNX Software - Embedded Systems News.

  4. I encountered some python path issues when using legacy kernel with edge release. Rock5b Legacy Kernel v5.10 & Ubuntu Kinetic. Debian Bullseye & Ubuntu Kinetic Don't have a /usr/bin/python symlink that points to python2, due to deprecation of Python 2 This breaks some old python scripts etc in linux-headers deb There is also a python-is-python3 that creates a /usr/bin/python symlink pointing to python3 So better to patch the legacy kernel incase cause issues later on. The patchfile is based off radxa kernel linux-5.10-gen-rkr3.4 Note: Any legacy kernel build (version 5.10 and previous) will be effected on a edge release. Sorry if not implemented in correct place or patchfile name, first time using armbian build system & bash scripting etc Thanks View the full article
