SD-Card Reader – ARM7

To simplify the ‚program-download’ on an existing control system a SD-card reader was developed. The ‘SD-card reader’ reads the data on the SD card and transmits it through the serial port onto the control system.Previously, the ‘program-download’ required a laptop or PSION, but now a much cheaper and simpler alternative is available to customers. The […]
