MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Wed, 05/23/2018 - 04:42

xmCHART is a very powerful FileMaker Pro plug-in for creating graphs of numerical data in which all important types of charts such as bar, scatter, line, area, bubble, high-Low, candlestick, pie, radar, polar and Gantt charts are supported. By means of an extensive set of functions, all important chart components such as scalings, axes, grids and labels can be controlled by the user. Furthermore, a title, legend, background picture, additional texts and picture information (e.g., a logo can be easily added to complete a chart).

Therefore, xmCHART opens up a wealth of new ways for analyzing and representing numerical data for both FileMaker Pro developers and users. xmCHART is available in English and German. xmCHART comes in a 1 hour-per-session demo version.

What is Google doing with smart unlock? Trusted places suddenly missing after being unreliable.

Android - Wed, 05/23/2018 - 04:23

So, a few weeks ago I started having problems with smart unlock. Trusted places got increasingly unreliable. There are numerous posts about this, also on the Google forums. Eventually the thing got worse, and now the option is completely missing. I'm not the only one having this issue. A few examples of people having problems or missing the option all together:!topic/phone-by-google/SuX3qeH4RfY!topic/phone-by-google/qw3adoEMAr4

No idea what is going on here, but hey, if the option is gone than it can't be unreliable too right. It's a shame though, as it's a nice feature to have on a device without a fingerprint scanner.

Automatic I2C Address Allocation For Daisy-Chained Sensors

Hack a Day - Wed, 05/23/2018 - 04:00

Many readers will be familiar with interfacing I2C peripherals. A serial line joins a string of individual I2C devices, and each of the devices has its own address on that line. In most cases when connecting a single device or multiple different ones there is no problem in ensuring that they have different addresses.

What happens though when multiple identical devices share an I2C bus? This was the problem facing [Sam Evans] at Mindtribe, and his solution is both elegant and simple. The temperature sensors he was using across multiple identical boards have three pins upon which can be set a binary address, and his challenge was to differentiate between them without the manufacturing overhead of a set of DIP switches, jumpers, or individual pull-up resistors. Through a clever combination of sense lines between the boards he was able to create a system in which the address would be set depending upon whether the board had a neighbour on one side, the other, or both. A particularly clever hack allows two side-by-side boards that have two neighbours to alternate their least significant bit, allowing four identical boards each with two sensors to be daisy-chained for a total of eight sensors with automatic address allocation.

We aren’t told what the product was in this case, however it’s irrelevant. This is a hardware hack in its purest sense, one of those which readers will take note of and remember when it is their turn to deal with a well-populated I2C bus. Of course, if this method doesn’t appeal, you can always try an LTC4316.
