build your own computer

Inside of the personal computer (power suplay motherboard cables discs fan...)Building your own PC can be an exhilarating challenge.

Putting together a machine that performs exactly the way you design is a process that takes time and perseverance, but should ultimately be rewarding.

The journey of learning and innovating may even lead to a career in the specialist electronics field.

However, many DIY PC builders start assembling a machine without reviewing all the considerations, tips and guidance. They then encounter a range of problems as they try to move forward in putting their system together. Let’s look at a few common DIY PC mistakes.

Components Don’t Work Together

This seems like the most elemental error someone could ever make, but it is so very common. When thinking about multiple complicated systems, it’s easy to overlook checking that the motherboard is compatible with the CPU. Or checking that items will fit in the Read the full article →

build your own computerPreviously, we looked at the importance of choosing a good OS. More specifically, that blog talked about the Windows Embedded platform, an operating system tailor-made for industrial systems, and one that provides a great deal of the functionality that these machines need. It works extremely well on the hardware and can be considered an industry standard. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the be-all and end-all of embedded operating systems. There are a number of other choices, some that provide interesting advantages to the end users and OEMs that design with them in mind.

One such OS that can be helpful during the build your own computer process is Linux. The many uses inherent to the platform make it just as flexible as the Windows Embedded platform, and perhaps even more so, due to its variability and open source nature. Linux has been around in embedded systems for some time, but the industry has become somewhat complacent in sticking to closed platforms rather than branching out. We should be looking more in this direction.

What is Linux in the “Build Your Own Computer” Context?

The moniker of the “Old Granddaddy of OS’s” fits the Linux platform. Though Linux was definitely not the first operating system, traced back to Read the full article →
