Memory (Part 3)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 “Flock of eeprom chips ” As mentioned before, EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory) is one type of memory which is very suitable for storing data on some occasion which would be read back as much as we like. As we deal with rather limited micro-controllers, we will skip the families of EEPROM chips […]

SD Cards (Part 6)

Previous posts on same subject Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 SD cards are a de facto standard for storing all sorts of information. They are cheap and their capacity seems to be (almost) limitless. As explained in previous posts, SD card can be used in two ways: as a logical unit for use with computer OS or in native mode. In […]

Tips and Tricks (Part19)

Previous tip and trick The aim of this tip is to help you to avoid to fall in pretty confusing trap. Here is how. Upgrading a complex library, even with minor changes, may lead to very complex debugging. This is even more true when tight timings, subtle proprietary protocols and many variables are involved. Secure […]

Tips and Tricks (Part18)

Previous Tip & Trick I recently participated in the newly created Parth’Lab initiative which was a fine time for sharing information of all natures. Their approach is very progressive, so that any participant feels comfortable at plugin an arduino board, wrapping a couple of electronic components on a bread board and ultimately running a traffic […]

Hello 2014, good bye 2013

All my greetings go to the community of inventors, designers, developers and their sponsors. Arduinoos blog is a wonderful place for observing this fast pacing community and the awesomeness of its production. Taking the now very popular PlainDSP (Digital Signal Processing) library, I am amazed by the range of applications of its functions: arts, environment, […]
