My bachelor’s thesis from 2010, describing a prototype of a simple Programmable Logic Controller and the corresponding graphical programming environment, implemented with Arduino development framework and a compatible microcontroller board.

Dva starinska napeva iz Bele krajine

V kontekstu rekonstrukcije glasbil iz muzeja in iskanja spremljajočega arhaičnega glasbenega izraza Bele krajine, podajam dve starinski pesmi, ki sodita v starejšo plast belokranjske glasbene estetetike. Prva je znana Tri jetrve,…

Sorbus aria

“Belokranjske dude” – rekonstrukcija glasbil iz Metliškega muzeja

V letu 2014 sta bili na pobudo KUD Oton Župančič iz Vinice po sto letih premora izdelani repliki glasbil iz muzeja.

Teensy++ (AVR) PLC controller – version 1

Here it is! The AT90USB646-based homebrew programmable logic controller. It’s not quite a Simatic S7 (and it’s not even completed in most parts), but it’s a nice start. A more…

That PLC thing…

Ehm… that PLC. What’s new? O.k. I canceled the ST compiler part. Not that I don’t like the idea of doing it, I just don’t have the time. So here…

Changing device names of NIC adapters

The PLC update

After looking at the Beremiz iec2c compiler source, I decided that modifying it to fit into this project is probably not the way to go. At this time, I’m deep…
