If you’ve got an Arduino project that you want to take one step beyond a temporary breadboard, but don’t want the hassle and expense of creating a custom PCB, Protoduino is for you. In a carefully designed general purpose PCB, all IO pins are exposed, and there’s plenty of room for additional components including another 20 pins worth of DIP. The board is designed for easy customization — traces can be cut to give additional flexibility, and unneeded parts of the board can be trimmed away.

This decoder is fed by a RDS demodulator IC (or tuner) which has RDDA (data signal) and RDCL (clock signal) outputs.The microcontrolller is an Atmega168 clocked on the external 4.332MHz crystal from the RDS demodulator. TDA7330B RDS demodulator IC from STMicroelectronics to be used in this project. The TDA7330B is connected to the Atmega168 with RDDA connected to PD4 (on PORTD) and RDCL to INT0 (PD2). [via]

This is versatile development board for AVR microcontrollers ATmega48/88/168. It is good for testing and debugging embedded programs. It has many built-in peripheries connected to microcontroller so you can use them without soldering. ATmega microcontrollers are produced by ATMEL and they include a lot of features: I/O, Timers, PWM generators, ADC, RS232, TWI, SPI, Analog Comparator, Oscillator, EEPROM These microcontrollers are very versatile, easy to program and easy to use. This is the reason why I like these microcontrollers and why I decided to make development board for them.

This is a weather station with a build-in webserver. The system is modular design you can either build a pure Ethernet weather station or an Ethenet weather station with an additional local LCD display.The weather station has two temperature sensors(LM335) and one MPX4115A which an absolute air pressure sensor from Motorola/Freescale both sensors controled by atmega88/168.

This instructable will show you how to create a multifunction platform with a thermometer, chronograph (count up timer), count down timer, and light display. It is also intended to be a platform for other analog sensors or any other functions you can think of. Project is based on Atmega168 microcontroller. Information is displayed on dual 7 segment LED display.

Rebecca Stern has a cool project sensing “squeeze” she writes –
I’m researching squeeze sensing as a mode of tactile interface. Here I will cover the process of developing a squeezeable sensor and the firmware/software concerns associated with interpreting the data from the sensor. This fulfills the “sensor project” for my class called Computational Principles in Media Arts taught in AME at ASU by Todd Ingalls and Hari Sundaram.First off, how do we sense “squeeze?” People squeeze all kinds of things: lemons, steering wheels, loved ones, toothpaste and other toiletries, pimples, stress balls, hand exercisers. I would like to focus on the latter two, which provide a therapeutic activity for those with Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). Using flex sensors arranged in a certain pattern on a spherical object, in this case a rubber dog toy, one can capture whenever the ball is squeezed.
