For the March 2012 Blog of the Month, we would like to recognize BMac's Power Electronics Development Center Blog. This blog is dedicated to power electronics design, prototyping, commercialization, HIL validation and testing using graphical system design tools. Posts range from software demonstration videos to best practes and recommended downloads, helping it become one of the most highly visited blogs in the past several months.




This month’s Blog of the Month is The NXT STEP, a blog for news and information on the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT system. With several contributors to the blog, it takes on many different perspectives and looks at a wide variety of projects. It even has a section devoted to building instructions.




When I asked Damien Kee, the current editor, about the blog he said that it “strives to both inspire young kids with ideas and projects that are manageable through some of the most incredible creations”. The blog started when the blog founder, Jim Kelly, got his kit and found that no-one else was talking about it online. This made it difficult to find information and inspiration. Jim’s blog was initially about his experiences, but soon turned into a community where people could bounce ideas off one another.


Be on the lookout for one of The NXT STEP blog contributors on our very own NI Community: bazmati.
