Piksey Atto: An incredibly tiny, Arduino compatible board with USB!
This cost-effective, yet tiny USB dev. board is designed for makers. It can be soldered onto PCBs, used with a breadboard or by itself. The author recently started creating DIY projects on their YouTube channel and they ran into a similar issue, time and again. Most of the sensors and...Continue Reading
Serpentine – Tiny CircuitPython-Based Development Board
CircuitPython's user base is growing even though a lot of people believe Micropython is a better route. It enjoys the rigorous backing 0f one of the major drivers of the Maker community (Aka Adafruit) and recently has been the "embedded Python" stack of choice for several open-source...Continue Reading
Network Clock using ESP8266 and OLED display
There are several situations where using an RTC could adversely affect your project by increasing cost, size, time accuracy or IO requirements. To prevent this, especially in ESP/WiFi-based or other clock-reliant projects, makers usually turn to obtain time information from NTP servers....Continue Reading
Arduino RFID Reader using the ArduiTouch MKR Enclosure
RFID based projects are one of the most popular Arduino projects out there and we have also built a couple of them here too, but I recently came across an RFID access control project by hwhardsoft that was built using the ArduiTouch MKR enclosures. The ready-made nature of the...Continue Reading
Battery (Lithium, NiMH, NiCd) Capacity Tester Using Arduino
The increased interest in IoT and electric automobiles around the world is driving an increase in the use of Lithium-Ion/Lithium-Polymer/NiCd/NiMH batteries as more devices and applications are using them, due to their high energy storage capacity to size ratio. This increased interest...Continue Reading
Seeeduino XIAO is an Arduino Microcontroller based on SAMD21 Cortex M0+
Take a look at Seeeduino XIAO. What a small size and cute looking! It is the smallest member of the Seeeduino family. Seeeduino XIAO still carries the powerful CPU-ARM® Cortex®-M0+(SAMD21G18) which is a low-power Arduino microcontroller. On the other hand, this little board has good...Continue Reading
