With their high-resolution touchscreens, ample computing power, WLAN support and telephone functions, Android smartphones and tablets are ideal for use as control centres in your own projects. However, up to now it has been rather difficult to connect them to external circuitry. Elektor’s AndroPod interface board, which adds a serial TTL port and an RS485 port to the picture, changes this situation. In this webinar Bernhard Wörndl-Aichriedler shows how easy it is to connect your own circuitry to an Android smartphone using the AndroPod interface.
