Bi-fuel hybrid camper van drives 1,000 miles and camps on pure battery power

A safety cone-orange Mitsubishi 4×4 camper van would typically be showstopper enough for any motorhome expo booth, but Campers Scotland came out blazing from both hands at this month’s Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show, where it also debuted the Eco Explorer. Less rugged but still a 4×4, the hybrid Eco Explorer offers low fuel consumption and a self-charging battery system to keep the lights on and cooktop firing. An LPG option gives it three drive-power sources and up to 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of range per fill-up, while a deconstructed kitchen and sliding rear bench make it a capable everyday driver.

Series 2 Product Security

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Silicon Labs

Side channel attacks such as differential power analysis (DPA) present a serious threat to our embedded designs. If we want to defend our systems from DPA and similar attacks, it is critical that we have a secure boot and root of trust. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Gregory Guez from Silicon Labs about DPA, secure debug, and the EFR32 Series 2 Platform.
