A weblog focused on interesting circuits, ideas, schematics and other information about microelectronics and microcontrollers.
Microchip announces new ethernet controller named ENC624J600 - the successor of the well-known ENC28J60.
There are several different levels of microcontrollers and microcontroller systems. Some are very small, chip-size devices to which you have to connect your own electronics. Others are larger, composed of several components and ports for input output, ready to plug right into other devices. Here is a short introduction.
USBTenki is an electronic project to interface sensors to an USB port for collecting weather related data such as temperature.
