Not so long ago, I wrote a post about my new toy, the Rigol DP832 Programmable DC Power Supply. One of the features I mentioned, was the ethernet connection allowing me to control the power supply over ethernet using the official software. Since this software is Windows only, I took some time to figure out if it is possible to write an iOS app for it.
During my last electronics project, I have made extensive use of the power supply my dad built for me when I was younger. And although I’m emotionally attached to this piece of anchient electronics, it was time to admit it needed replacement.
