As one does while in bed at 3am and unable to sleep, I was thinking of the Strobit Triggr (which is probably why I couldn’t get to sleep in the first place) an idea presented itself for Arduino type shields (in particular Strobit Triggr personality boards) where they could be given some real personality. Currently … Continue reading Arduino Shields with Real Personality
I've been playing around with Eagle3D on and off (like most things more off than on lately). Eagle3D in a nutshell is a bunch of scripts to generates povray files. Povray is then used to render a realistic representation of the PCB file with all components included. The problem I've always come up against when … Continue reading Eagle3D and Google Sketchup Success
I've been playing around with the Arduino Diecimila and the ATMEGA168 over the last couple of weeks to better familiarise myself with the AVR ATMega168 MCU, I've been using PICs on and off the last few years, but the decision was made to use the ATMEGA as the MCU of choice for the Strobit Triggr … Continue reading Come join the Darkside Skywalker…..The Switch from PIC to AVR
