Reverse engineering The new Wiring S board

Reverse engineering? The new Wiring S board In the fall of 2008 I started researching Arduino for an introductory article for Elektor. In that article I wrote that Arduino can be seen as a simplification of Wiring. The Arduino environment is very much like Wiring but slightly simplified and the …

LabVIEW Arduino Android

LabVIEW, Arduino & Android During lunch today I picked up the words LabVIEW and Arduino. Now that got me interested (or excited, as they would say here) and it turned out that a technical session about hacking Arduino with LabVIEW would take place later in the afternoon. So I attended …

Connecting two Arduinos using I2C interface

Connecting two Arduinos using I2C interface What happen if you have a project with inputs and outputs more than your microcontroller can handle ?you can buy another microcontroller with larger input / output pins ( and this is a solution i don’t advise you to use as it will be …

Arduino language tutorial Lesson 4

Arduino language tutorial (Lesson 4) LESSON 4 : Analog Input As you learned in the previous lessons, Arduino is able to detect whether there is a voltage applied to one of its pins and report it through the digitalRead()function. but light sensor such as ( LDR ) is able to tell …

Arduino language tutorial Lesson 3

Arduino language tutorial (Lesson 3) LESSON 3: Controlling Light with PWM One of the limita-tions of the blinking LED examples that we have used so far in lesson 1 and 2 is that you can turn the light only on and off. A fancy interactive lamp needs to be dimmable.if …

Using Arduino Freeduino as AVR ISP Programmer

Using Arduino / Freeduino as AVR ISP Programmer Recently i was looking at Arduino Playground, There i saw this useful project called MegaISP. I downloaded it and tried and it worked really fine for me. I tried MegaISP to program an ATmega8l, ATmega8, ATmega16, ATmega32 and i believe, supports other …
