Hi dear reefer and aquarist passionates,

I finished my project that automate Auto Water Change and Auto Top Off.

It's called Aquamonitor and it also monitor and alert you if something goes wrong. It's based on python over a Raspberry pi.

It full open sourced and documented, all is available here:

Hi Caleb,

Thanks for posting about my project! I've actually been working on moving everything to surface mount (board is now called Arduarium Ultimate and available in the store) and am actually going to be releasing a version for the Raspberry Pi because it's got more horsepower to do some of the things I've been wanting to do.

right now I don't have anything automated but the lights with simple timers. I have a tendency to do simpler, less tempermental aquariums so I don't need to constantly monitor things like ph, salinity, etc.

Caleb,

Thanks for sharing a peek into the world of aquarium automation.  I guess you could have called the article "fish and chips" :-)

These projects all look like great fun.  The aquascaping website was also really interesting.  Wow.. those are some labors of love!

I would be interested to hear more if you implement one of these systems (or your own) for your own aquarium.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
