Things are Different In 2012 I was struggling to put together a stm32 based wireless datalogger using leaflabs libmaple and a $20 wifi module. I had to write most of the code myself because libmaple was based on arduino-0022 and most of the wifi libraries made extensive use of the new classes available after… Read more »

Running Paul Stoffregons’s teensy_serial arduino core on DFU based chips.
With a lot of my projects I have done my prototyping with Paul Stoffregon’s Teensy series of boards before moving them onto their own codebases. On those occasions where the “prototype was all I needed” I would compile the code using the teensyduino and then manually load the .hex file onto the target. As I… Read more »
Day 1: Thing 1: Midi Monster Board Design
This month we have two workshops. One on interfacing Purdata with the outside world and one on programming midi devices. I designed one board that should work for both classes. I will blog a bit more about this technically later at dorkbotpdx.org/feurig but that was my thing for the day.
Benito#7 The next big thing.
There were a few lessons that I learned at the Arduino Cult induction workshop that I put together this month. One of which was that I needed to simplify my programmer design on the cable end and not wait until I had a full blown product. Revisiting the original I first revised the ftdi boards… Read more »
A single sided ft232rl based arduino programming board.
I was so happy with the boards I did the other day that I decided to make some small boards for the ft232 so that aidan would have a programmer for his breadboard RBBA. I made 20 of these boards . QTY Supplier Part number description cost 1 DIGIKEY 604-00043-ND IC FTDI FT232RL USB-SRL 28-SSOP… Read more »
This was started at http://www.thing-a-day.com/2008/02/04/day-4-thing-4-aduino-adaboot-programmer/ It is part of the way that I do programming on the avr platform and the Arduino. I was using the programming half of a a bulky prototype that I have been working on to program an RBBa based maze solving mouse and I looked at the pile hanging precariously… Read more »
The $15 Wiring Board
This was started out as one of my things for Thing-A-Day (2008) (http://www.thing-a-day.com/2008/02/22/day-22-thing-22-the-15-wiring-board/) This follows my work getting the wiring software platform working on some generic mega128 boards. It is somehow related to my work on reducing the costs of the Arduino runtime to less than $4 I recently found the code for an Stk500v2… Read more »
Day 28: Thing 28: Charley plexed display
(Archive of: http://www.thing-a-day2.com/2008/02/28/day-28-thing-28-charley-plexed-display/) Today I made the software for some hardware that I built a while ago. The origional question was if I got 15000 leds for next to nothing and it costs 4-15 per 8×8 array (with the 4$ solution also needing 4 to eleven additional parts) to drive them are we getting anywhere?… Read more »
Day 25: Thing 25: AntiSocial(ism)
(Archive of: http://www.thing-a-day2.com/2008/02/25/day-25-thing-25-antisocialism/) I went to radio shack about a month ago and bought an utrasonic distance sensor made by parallax called a ping))). I have been feeling cranky and anti social lately so I thought I should make something that didnt want to be bothered. I am considering adding an air horn for people… Read more »
Day 24: Thing 24 — Mouse Whiskers (touch sensor)
(Archive of: http://www.thing-a-day2.com/2008/02/24/day-24-thing-24-mouse-whiskers-touch-sensor/) Two weekends ago Aidan and I went to radio shack and he was looking at these $9 bug bots which have a sound sensor, two touch sensors (antennae) and 6 legs. He was very interseted in both the walking mechanism and the touch sensor. We decided that we should add one of… Read more »
