Hardware

Next step

I have been thinking about this for a while now and I feel I need to put it out there so that I can drive myself to doing it. I...

Lights Out

Idea: Simply turn on/off lights using your phone (over WiFi). Circuit: Have a microcontroller connected to a relay that acts as a switch in the wiring loop. I didn't...

AVR LED patterns (asm)

So, I made a couple of code samples with assembly. Basically I have 8 leds connected to PORTB and I need them to perform different patterns. Here're are some of...

AVR LED Blink (asm)

LEDs connected to PORTB on ATMega2560 (or any other chip for that matter). Sink the LED instead of source. What does that mean? Have the positive of LED connected to...

AVR Revisited (Assembly)

AVR asm is going to come in handy pretty soon. I might need it to create a bootloader in the upcoming months. Here's a quick review. AVR Registers are 8bit...

AVR revisited (The basics)

I am revisiting AVR C for various reasons and I have decided to write it down in my notebook (my blog) everything worth remembering. First things first, I don't like...

USB Wifi dongle on Beaglebone Black & Ubuntu 14.04 (RTL8192cu driver)

After an extremely long hack session I finally got RTL8192cu to run on Beaglebone Black A5C/A6 running Ubuntu 14.04. It was painful. But here is a log of...

[Dev Log] Knock : Part 6 - My massive mistake

So I used ATTiny2313. For a project that depends upon Analog To Digital Conversion. I USED A CHIP THAT DOESN'T HAVE AN ADC. But the good thing is it took...

[Dev Log] Knock : Part 5

Serial on an 8 bit controller is hard to grasp. Especially if you're working in C. I mean you've got to take care of memory etc. So yeah, it's a...

[Dev Log] Knock : Part 4

AVR USART So I've been working with AVR USART today and I talked to some of the guys on #avr on freenode. Turns out _BV() is not a good way...

[Dev Log] Knock : Part 3

So I am lazy and I like working on a linux environment. Don't get me wrong I love the Atmel Studio, it's got a lot of stuff, it's easy to...

[Dev Log] Knock : Part 2

So today I did two things. I set up the local server and I also soldered an ATTiny2313 onto a protoboard. The amazing part is that I got the board...

[Dev Log] Knock : Part 1

So I got my stuff on a Sunday. UPS really outdid themselves and awesome packaging my Digikey. Now I know who I am going to be ordering my stuff from,...

Knock : For the ones with headphones on all the time.

Project Knock is my first personal hardware project after a long time. I haven't actually begun putting together the hardware right now, because it's not arrived yet. Waiting on UPS...
