TinyDecoder – Cool IR Receiver and NEC Decoder with Arduino

Infrared has been around for a long while. It has proven to be reliable enough so that basically almost everything remote and short range, that came before home automation was cool enough to be considered a thing, and battled its place fairly with RF technologies, so it deserves some...

Turn Your Raspberry Pi Into a Standalone AVR/ESP Programmer with LEMPA

One of the challenges of developing and producing microcontroller-based hardware projects in a repeatable, small/medium volume, is the amount of work it takes to flash the MCUs with the required firmware. Another side of the problem for designers who work with diverse types of...

Minimal I2C for the New AVR Microcontrollers

This article describes a set of minimal I2C routines for the new 0-series and 1-series ATtiny and ATmega microcontrollers. They allow any of these processors to act as an I2C Master and connect to I2C peripherals. As an example of their use I've designed a digital clock circuit based on...
