Large CMOS or CCD image sensors
I'm considering replacing the eyepiece in a 6-inch newtonian reflector with an image sensor of some flavour... I've hacked up a web cam but the sensor at 1/4" is too small; the...

Just what I need for the day job...
High temperature flash SPI chips... up to 8Gb at 175C, 1Gb at 200C: http://www.sesemi.co.uk/index.ph... Or there's a new TI chip http://www.ti.com/product/sm28vl... which is only...

Riddle me this... where's the current going?
A straight-forward oscillator as above, 4MHz. The two gates are the only ones used on the package; all other inputs are tied high or low as most convenient for the wiring, about...

M644A vs M324P serial problem
Got an interesting one here... I'm trying to use UART0 on a 644A to talk to a u-blox6 GPS chip, and failing. The same code, same pins, same voltage, same clock speed, same...

Mega324A and SPI problem
What am I doing wrong, guys? I have some SPI code lifted from Dharmani's micro-SD card (and hopefully modified correctly for the different port and control register names) which...

5v to 3v3 interface thoughts...
This is the tale of a (now solved) subtle bug in a 5v to 3v3 level converter; it might help someone with a similar issue. In this case I was talking to some Ramtron FRAM. Recall...

[TUT] Signed and unsigned multiplication
A brief note on multiplying signed numbers Range: Using, for the sake of example, 8-bit numbers, it's clear that the number can take a total of 2^8 (256) discrete values. What...

DC-DC converter - LTC3642
I started playing with this chip as a 5v-3v3 high efficiency voltage converter and was very impressed. I'm getting 92% efficiency on the power conversion at 3.3mA output (I still...

File tab naming bug
Here's a good one: - open a convenient file in AS5 editor - 'save as' something else - observe that the file name on the editor tag has not changed - make changes to the visible...

Targetting multiple processors
Not sure if this is possible: I have a large application - almost fills 32k of ATMega324 but has a number of versions: two different processors, three different displays and...

printf, floats, and AVR5
All right, I'm sure there must be a way to do it, but I'm blowed if I can find it... Surely there must be a better way of getting floating point printf than including the line...

Aaargh. Optimisation breaks my code.
And optimisation is required to make _delay_ms work properly... Applies to AVR4 and AVR5; was fine with AVR3. Head bender time. For reasons I don't know and can't easily track,...
