Robust Long Distance MCU Communication

Due to their flexibility and performance, microcontrollers are popular in control, sensor and actuator systems. More and more applications require a reliable exchange of information between controllers over several meters. With increasing cable lengths, the required characteristics of the cable significantly contribute to the overall cost of the system. […]
