The advance technological, the processes monitoring are becoming more complex with increase in, efficient, analysis of process, number of parameters under data acquisition with single chip environment is increases . New generation data acquisition developments have been emerge with controlling and monitoring with microcontroller technology, which enables real-time data collection, analysis, logging and plotting of data. The requirements the demand of an improved, efficient and up- to-date data logger is increasing, with combination of a sensor, microcontroller, and a data storage device. Data loggers are provided with real time record and time of acquisition. In this paper, a data logger prototype is designed and tested for the specific application as pressure, temperature and vibration. The system works around the AT-MEGA-16 microcontroller. The system is designed and developed to measure temperature, vibration and pressure with accurate sensors and the result is stored in memory such as EEPROM for post process analysis. During the testing, it is verified that there is real time correct data acquire and stored in memory. Using a LCD display verified the current data storage. The focus of design is on portability and low power consumption in robust environment.

A new direction in short-range wireless applications has appeared in the form of high-speed data communication devices for distances of hundreds meters. Behind these embedded applications, a complex heterogeneous architecture is built. Moreover, these short range communications are introduced into critical applications, where the dependability/reliability is mandatory. Thus, dependability concerns around reliability evaluation become a major challenge in these systems, and pose several questions to answer. Obviously, in such systems, the attribute reliability has to be investigated for various components and at different abstraction levels. In this paper, we discuss the investigation of dependability in wireless short range systems. We present a hardware platform for wireless system dependability analysis as an alternative for the time consuming simulation techniques. The platform is built using several instances of one of the commercial FPGA platforms available on the market place. We describe the different steps of building the wireless hardware platform for short range systems dependability analysis. Then, we show how this HW platform based dependability investigation framework can be a very interactive approach. Based on this platform we introduce a new methodology and a flow to investigate the different parts of system dependability at different abstraction levels. The benefits to use the proposed framework are three fold: first, it takes care of the whole system (HW/SW -digital part, mixed RF part, and wireless part); Second, the hardware platform enables to explore the application’s reliability under real environmental conditions taking into account the effect of the environment threats on the system; And last, the wireless platform built for dependability investigation present a fast investigation approach in comparison with the time consuming co-simulation technique.

This paper presents two level data security in Network system. Cryptographic algorithm BLOWFISH and Steganography algorithm List significant Bit (LSB) are used for data security. Confidential information is encrypted by BLOWFISH algorithm, and then encrypted data hide into image by LSB algorithm of Steganography. For more security we used iris image of authorized person to hide encrypted data. The keys required for BLOWFISH algorithm is generated from same iris image. These two algorithms implemented on 32 bit ARM 7. In the result of project include memory utilization, processing time for encryption and decryption etc. this project gives better security for embedded systems like mobile, smart card, ATM etc.
