Learning Examples | Foundations | Hacking | Links This tutorial explains how to migrate from an Arduino board to a standalone microcontroller on a breadboard. It's similar to this tutorial, but uses an Arduino board to program the ATmega on the breadboard. Unless you choose to use the minimal configuration described at the end of this tutorial, you'll need four components (besides the Arduino, ATmega328, and breadboard): a 16 MHz crystal, a 10k resistor, and two 18 to 22 picofarad (ceramic) capacitors. Uploading Using an Arduino Board Once your ATmega328p has the Arduino bootloader on it, you can upload programs to it using the USB-to-serial convertor (FTDI chip) on an Arduino board. Uploading sketches to an ATmega on a breadboard. Minimal Circuit (Eliminating the External Clock) If you don't have the extra 16 MHz crystal and 18-22 picofarad capacitors used in the above examples, you can configure the ATmega328 to use its internal 8 MHz RC oscillator as a clock source instead.

Arduino on a Breadboard Small kit with BIG functionality By Ryan Winters Jameco Product Manager Difficulty Level: Beginner Time Required: 20 minutes Required: BareBones Arduino Circuit Kit (P/N 2151259 – breadboard not included) Arduino Sprinkler System + Web control A smart sprinkler system for the rest of us... No soldering involved ! Just pile up a couple of shields on top of an arduino and control your sprinkler system from anywhere. A couple of friends wanted to replicate the sprinkler system presented in this instructable but were scared by the complexity of it.

Arduino programmer on breadboard using FT232RL ‹ BUILD CIRCUIT Before making an Arduino programmer on breadboard using FT232RL, you need to know about arduino, breadboard and USB to serial FT232RL break out board. If you are an electronic novice, I recommend you to visit this page to get ideas on building simple electronic projects on breadboard. You need following components for making an Arduino programmer: a.

webduino - Simple and extensible web server for Arduino and Ethernet Shield This is an Arduino-based Web Server library, originally developed for a class at NYC Resistor. It's called Webduino, and it's an extensible web server library for the Arduino using the Wiznet-based Ethernet shields. It's released under the MIT license allowing all sorts of reuse. Setting up an Arduino on a breadboard Overview This tutorial shows you how to build an Arduino compatible breadboard with an Atmel Atmega8/168/328 AVR microcontroller and FTDI FT232 breakout board from SparkFun. You could also use the Arduino USB Mini. Originally created David A.

Arduino Tutorial - Lesson 3 - Breadboards and LEDs You've started modifying sketches, and played a bit with the onboard LED (or if you have an NG, an LED you added). The next step is to start adding onto the hardware component of the Arduino. We will do this by adding a solderless breadboard to our setup, connecting up new parts with wire. Solderless breadboards are an important tool in your quest for electronics mastery. Bootloading an Arudino Pro Mini – Maker's Mojo From time to time the Arduino Pro Mini clones, such as the Funduino, come without the bootloader installed. This means you cannot programme them with the Arduino software until you have loaded the bootloader onto the board. However, this can be resolved by using an Arduino Uno to act as a bootload programmer using the ArduinoISP sketch and following the steps below: Connect the Arduino Uno via USB to the PC.Open the Arduino IDE.Select the correct COM port and board (Arduino Uno).Open the ArduinoISP sketch (File>Examples>ArduinoISP).Upload the sketch. Once completed, your Arduino Uno is now programmed to be an ISP programmer.Power the Uno off and wire the Uno to the Arduino Pro Mini (see below)Power on the Uno.Select the correct COM port.IMPORTANT: Select board Arduino Pro Mini 5v w/ATmega328 as the board we are uploading to.From the Tools menu, select Burn Bootloader > w/Aduino as ISP

OneWire Arduino Library, connecting 1-wire devices (DS18S20, etc) to Teensy OneWire lets you access 1-wire devices made by Maxim/Dallas, such as temperature sensors and ibutton secure memory. For temperature sensors, the DallasTemperature library can be used with this library. Download: (Version 2.2) OneWire communicates with 1-wire devices. To act as a 1-wire device, use the OneWireSlave library. Hardware Requirements projects:lcd_module - I bought an I2C display on ebay and by the description it seemed it just might work out of the box… But it didn't … Here is a description of how I got it to work, so next time I do not have to invent the wheel again. My display has a PCB on the back labled “YwRobot Arduino LCM1602 IIC V1” but it appears it is the same as the the one of The only difference is the text on the back.

Installing an Arduino Bootloader Favorited Favorite 11 Overview Do you have a bricked Arduino that won’t accept code anymore? Or, maybe you wrote your own firmware and would like to upload it to your Arduino? Or, maybe you just want to learn more about the inner-workings of Arduino, AVR, and microcontrollers in general. Well, you’re in luck!

Standalone Arduino / ATMega chip on breadboard If you're like me, after I got my Arduino and performed a final programming on my first chip, I wanted to pull it off my Arduino Duemilanove and put it on my own circuit. This would also free up my Arduino for future projects. The problem was that I'm such an electronics newbie that I didn't know where to start. After reading through many web pages and forums, I was able to put together this Instructable. I wanted to have the information I learned all in one place, and easy to follow. Comments and suggestions are welcome and appreciated as I'm still trying to learn all this stuff.

Wide field 4D optical flow odometry using Arduino and Stonyman image sensor I've been working on a new version of our ArduEye using one of our "Stonyman" image sensor chips and decided to see if I can grab four dimensions of optical flow (X shift, Y shift, curl, and divergence) from a wide field of view. I wirebonded a Stonyman chip to a 1" square breakout board, and attached it to an Arduino Mega256 using a simple connecting shield board. I then glued a simple flat printed pinhole onto the chip using (yay!) 5-minute model airplane epoxy. With a little black paint around the edges, the result is a simple low resolution very wide field of view camera that can operated using the Arduino. I programmed the Arduino to grab five 8x8 pixel regions- region 0 is forward while the other four regions are about 50 degrees diagonally off forward as shown.

Burning a bootloader to an Arduino Nano using another Arduino Recently I have bought a cheap clone of Arduino Nano from the Chinese site Deal Extreme. Unfortunately, that product (SKU 81877) comes without a bootloader. The main sign that indicates you that the Arduino doesn’t have a bootloader is that the “L” LED, next to the Power LED, doesn’t blink when the Arduino is connected to the power source or when the Reset button is pressed. It is possible to use your Arduino without a bootloader, but it won’t work with the Arduino IDE and you will need an external AVR Programmer like this one in order to upload sketches. So I needed to follow two main steps in order to get my Arduino Nano working without buying an AVR programmer:
