My Smart Phone Kit

The kit is designed to be used for M.Tech, B.Tech, MCA, BCA, MSc, and Diploma courses of CSE/IT/ECE/EEE etc. as an experimental environment for various courses such as Mobile Computing, Embedded System, Wireless Communications, Internet of Things, and Programming Languages like Python, C, and Shell Script etc. Please refer Appendix 1 for subjects with list of sample experiments. Presently the Kit can be used as a Linux PC to experiment the theoretical concepts practically in real environment. It provides the freedom for Hardware interfaces, building the customizable OS and integrating the applications with the H/W and OS as a complete system solution. It is suitable for Faculty who are teaching Embedded Systems, Communication Systems, and Mobile Computing, IOT etc.

This Kit supports online web portal “www. mysmartphonekit.mobileeducationkit.net” with recent updates on software, experiments that provides a round the clock supportive environment for beginners to learn and experiment with this kit.

Book- ‘Design and Development of Smart Phone – A Practical Approach by using Raspberry Pi’

The book ‘Design and Development of Smart Phone – A Practical Approach by using Raspberry Pi’( mobile education kit ) is a unique in its kind since it provides complete package that student or a researcher requires to understand, experiment and create new products and innovations through the theoretical and practical knowledge provided by the book.  There exist several books that talks about mainly on theoretical concepts or simulations but fails to address a real practical approach with the real hardware, software. This book describes the step by step procedure to integrate different hardware and software components to finally develop a unique product of low cost smart phone. This book uses one of the most popular open source language ‘python’, a open source OS platform ‘Linux’ and open source hardware Raspberry Pi which are accepted across the world. This book deals with understanding the architecture of mobile device in terms of both hardware and software. It describes the selection of various SoCs, operating systems and programming languages in order to develop the smart phone. It also describes the methodology for porting of customized Linux operating system as a mobile OS to support various functionalities with the raspberry pi. The subsequent chapters describes the interfacing and programming of various I/O and communication peripherals such as TFT, Mike, Speakers ,various sensors and GSM Module, GPS Module, Bluetooth modules respectively along with examples and exercises.

This book supports online web portal “www. Mobileeducationkit.net” with recent updates on software, experiments that provides a round the clock supportive environment for beginners to learn and experiment. The aim of the book is to enhance the practical approach with the real environment among the students and researchers in the open source environment. The mobile education kit is distributed along with the software packages that comprise the OS source code, project files that demonstrate the various experiments and ppts for the faculties with the list of exercises and solutions. The hardware comprises the raspberry pi, micro SD card, communication module like GSM, GPS, and Bluetooth with various sensors. Updates on any of the topic are made available through the web portal www.mobileeducationkit.net.
