M2Mqtt is officially part of the Paho project !

Who knows the MQTT protocol, used in the Internet of Things market, also knows that the reference project for it is Paho of the Eclipse Foundation.

This project provides a lot of client implementations of MQTT in all main programming languages ​​such as C/C++ (for Windows or Linux and for embedded systems), Java (J2SE and Android), JavaScript, Python and Go.

In this large list, until a few days ago, an implementation in C# usable on .Net and WinRT platforms was missing . This gap was filled with my M2Mqtt project that is now officially under Paho umbrella for which I’m officially a committer !

Windows for IoT : MQTT on Intel Galileo board

One of the main features of an “object” in the Internet of Things world is its ability to exchange messages, sending data or receiving commands, as effectively and efficiently as possible. There are several standard protocols for this purpose but one of my favorites is MQTT.


In this article, we will see how it is possible to use an MQTT client on the 
Intel Galileo board with "Windows for IoT", so that we will add the required capacity in order to be recognized as a main part of the Internet of Things business.

Power management on the Beaglebone part 2–Battery

In part one of this series I showed how to implement the “Power Key” to safely power up and shutdown the Beaglebone platform under Windows Embedded Compact 2013 or Windows Compact 7. To continue on the power management theme I will show how to implement the battery driver but first there are some hardware issues we need to take care of. It seems the hardware designers of the Beaglebone were thinking ahead in that they brought out all the needed connections to the PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit) for battery backed operation. The needed connections are shown as test points in this partial schematic: The full schematic is freely available from the BeagleBoard web site. The data sheet for the Texas Instruments PMIC is also available for download. As I have stated in my previous post, the TPS65217C PMIC has an integrated battery charger on board. In my case I am using a 1.75A/hr. Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) battery. A couple of the connections are quite obvious, Battery plus needs to go to TP5, Batt ...
