A weblog focused on interesting circuits, ideas, schematics and other information about microelectronics and microcontrollers.
Every hobbyist can work with IC in the DIL (or SOIC) package without any bigger problems. But modern ICs, especially microcontrollers and processors, are in the TQFP/LQFP package. How we can handle with them?
A few schematics of the TV signal generators based on the Microchip's PICs
The old integrated circuits renewed, in a new way, for modern applications... Who makes them, where you can buy them...?
Have a look at the articleon the . There is almost complete guide to identifying components found on older PCBs or discarded electronics you can recycle and use.
Dennis Kuschel is another guy builds his very own computer from a scratch. It is really interesting piece of hardware...
A pair of AVR JTAG programmers for hobbyist.
How to manage Nokia 6100 LCD to use 4096 colors without any limitations? It's easy... You can use my library for free.
As I promise in, here is my improved LCD C library for using with the Nokia 6100 Series LCD.
Main feature in this library is method to use full 4096 colors in the 8bits (256col) mode. It is enabled by simple hack, based on the color lookup table and the LRU cache.
How to use the color LCD from the Nokia 6100 mobile phone with your own microcontroller project? Inside: Description of full-color (4096 colors) LCD mode, connecting the display to the µC and free graphics library to download.
Nice stuff - thermometer made with tiny PIC, DS18B20 and LCD from old Nokia 3310.
