We’ve so much content for you this month that we’re increasing the size of Elektor Magazine – permanently! From now on, you’ll be getting 92 pages of Elektor at no extra cost! This means more editorial content for you every month, starting right now.


To kick off our bulkier publication, we’ve a new project series for you called ATmega on the Internet. The basis for this series of articles is a system in which a Fritz!Box router provides the LAN, and a Raspberry Pi is used as a network gateway in order to make communicating with a microcontroller over the Internet nice and easy. In the first instalment we present the basic concept and describe some typical hardware.


How do you extract the maximum power from a PV panel? Find the answers in this month’s edition of Elektor Magazine as we set sail with Anders Gustafsson and learn how to charge batteries using a solar panel on your RV or sailboat. A perfect project for the intrepid RV'ers, explorers and campers among you.


For something a little different from our normal projects, we’ll also be demonstrating how to build a functioning RF circuit using only common household resources and all of your engineering skills. It’s not the prettiest board we’ve ever made, but it’s guaranteed to make that AD913 DDS chip work flawlessly.


Of course, no Elektor Magazine edition is complete without the staple articles you've come to expect; our monthly Hexadoku puzzle, a scintillating Retronics article on the HP200A and a companion column from Gerard Fonte to boot!
