HintShop: avrdude -c buspirate Let’s put two things together today… The BusPirate is the ultimate tinkerers’ tool that makes the SPI, I2C, 1-Wire, UART, JTAG and some other low-level protocols available to an ordinary PC equipped with a serial or USB port. That way a PC can talk to many digital electronic components, from temperature sensors through microcontrollers and memories to I/O devices like LCD displays or ethernet interfaces. Uploading a firmware to an Atmel AVR microcontroller (MCU) is possible through many different ways, with the most common and universal probably being ICSP — In Circuit System Programming.
Wii nunchuck data logger | Windmeadow Labs I wanted to use the wii nunchuck accelerometer for some measurements. I didn't really want to drag my computer around, so I built a little data logger. The nunchuck accelerometer data gets written to an eeprom. Then later I can download the data to my PC. I used a Microchip 25AA512 eeprom.
So, I get two or three emails a day, all basically asking the same thing: "Where can I learn about electronics?" In general, most of these people have seen some of my projects and want to be able to build similar things. Unfortunately, I have never been able to point them to a good site that really takes the reader through a solid introduction to microcontrollers and basic electronics. I designed this tutorial course to accompany the Arduino starter pack sold at the Adafruit webshop. The pack contains all the components you need (minus any tools) for the lessons
