A weblog focused on interesting circuits, ideas, schematics and other information about microelectronics and microcontrollers.
Everyone knows an Arduino... For the PIC-lovers, there is an alternative, based on Microchip stuff: A Pinguino.
Don't be silly - you can't make an iPhone with an AVR at home, of course. But you can get a surprising amount of functionality out of a 8-bit processor and a cheap touch LCD.
If you are interested in the amazing Parallax Propeller chip, you appreciate the Morpheus: A dual processor Propeller based single board computer.
How to use an Arduino and an Ethernet shield together to check e-mail box via POP3 protocol...
How to connect 1-Wire device (e.g. DS1820) to the USB via OBDEV's USB firmware for AVR.
It isn't a problem to create an uC-based device as an USB peripherial nowadays - there are a lot of chips with USB device capability, from FTDI to some PIC/USB, or OBDEV's USB software controller. But what to do if you need connect some USB peripherial to your device?
Something to read for old game lovers: Two games (Skool Daze and Back to Skool) disassembled and commented.
This project is about interfacing a typical HD44780 Text LCD to an FPGA using delay elements with a Finite State Machine (FSM).
LCD aplhanumeric modules are good available and it's simply to use them. Here are some tips and ideas.
