YubiKey Provides An Easy And Safe Way To Secure Your Online Logins

Regardless of how strong a password is, or what level of code-based authentication a website is using, any system that sends codes in a text message can be hacked by a skilled hacker. The most secure way to set up two-factor authentication is to use a reliable app on a smartphone to generate those six-digit codes or to carry a piece of hardware that can verify user’s true identity. A dev ...

Using a Hall Effect Sensor with Arduino

Hi guys, welcome to today’s tutorial. Today we will look at how to use a hall effect sensor with Arduino. A hall effect sensor is a sensor that varies its output based on the presence or absence of a magnetic field. This means that the output signal produced by a Hall effect sensor is a function of magnetic field density around it. When the magnetic flux density around it exceeds a certain pre-set threshold ...

PID temperature control with Arduino

What’s up my friends, welcome back. What I want, is the aluminum block below to have let’s say, exactly 100 degrees. I’ll control the real temperature using a K type thermocouple. To read the data I'll use the MAX66 75 breakout module and control the PID algorithm with and Arduino. Finally, to apply power we will make a small circuit using a MOSFET or maybe a TRIAC in case of high AC voltages. This will be ...
