I2C GPS Module with NMEA decoding

David Johnson-Davies designed a GPS module that decodes the NMEA sentences on ATtiny841, and this also runs the I2C slave routine. He writes: This is a compact GPS module with an I2C interface, making it easy to read the GPS parameters from another project without needing to worry...

I2C GPS Module along with ATtiny841

This project describes a simple GPS module which you can interface to via I2C. It uses an ATtiny841. David Johnson-Davies writes: Incorporating GPS into a project is quite daunting. First you have to parse the NMEA sentences from the GPS module you're using, and then if you're doing...

I2C – Everything you need to know

I2C - Everything you need to know article from www.mikroe.com There is no need for a wordy introduction to I2C protocol. We all know it's main parts - 2 wires, multiple slaves, sometimes multiple masters, up to 5MHz of speed. Often so have we all implemented an I2C connection. Still,...
