We start this month with a product design article by Damian Szmulewicz of Texas Instruments, and Oscar M. Guillen of the Technical University of Munich. This explains why using MCUs with ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) technology makes KNX systems more secure. Next, our regular columnist, Simon Buddle, makes a plea to KNX manufacturers to implement a software interface between their products and the DALI communications protocol that provides for more than sixteen scenes.
This is followed by Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg, who rounds off his series on how to manage KNX projects with some great advice on the handover process and support strategies. And finally, Paul Foulkes of EchoHouse looks at how KNX can be used to link the IoT and big data to the built environment.
Don't forget to check out our resources section which is packed full of useful information, and don't forget to send us a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile for our 'Where is KNX?' gallery. Enjoy!
