FTDI Basic Breakout - 5V Description: This is the newest revision of our FTDI Basic. We now use a SMD 6-pin header on the bottom, which makes it smaller and more compact. Functionality has remained the same. This is a basic breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC. The pinout of this board matches the FTDI cable to work with official Arduino and cloned 5V Arduino boards. It can also be used for general serial applications.

hypersense complex Alistair Riddell Somaya Langley Simon Burton The goal of the hypersense project is to explore different ways of interacting with the computer to produce sound. Briefly introduced: 0.96 inch OLED Display with a resolution of 128x64 - simtronyx - Das Elektronik Blog This time i ordered a monochrome OLED display with a resoltion of 128×64. It works with an I2C interface and needs no background light because of the self illumination type. Kurz vorgestellt: 0,96 Zoll OLED Display I²C mit 128×64 Pixel – blog.simtronyx.de My version of the display is monochrome blue, also there are displays with monochrome white pixels. Arduino Buying Guide Arduino Buying Guide Let’s face it, there are a a lot of different Arduino boards out there. How do you decide which one you need for your project? With this table, you can not only compare features between all the different Arduino boards we carry, but you can also see why these differences are important. What is an Arduino? Let’s first talk about what an Arduino really is.

Stretch Sensor Projects About the ShadowCoat What am I building? I am creating a wearable input tool. ESP8266 in deep sleep - Digits Domotica Blog With the ESP-12 modules on a breadboard adapter I was finally ready for some tinkering. The plan for today was very simple: flash NodeMcu firmware, start programming the ESP8266 in Lua and try deep sleep mode. I put an ESP-12 on a breadboard, used a FTDI-ish thing to connect the ESP-12 to my Windows PC and used a 3.3/5V breadboard power supply (set to 3.3V) to power the ESP-12. Flash! Time to flash the thing! Arduino Arduino is an open-source computer hardware and software company, project and user community that designs and manufactures kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control the physical world.[1] Arduino boards may be purchased preassembled, or as do-it-yourself kits; at the same time, the hardware design information is available for those who would like to assemble an Arduino from scratch. The first Arduino was introduced in 2005. The project leaders sought to provide an inexpensive and easy way for hobbyists, students, and professionals to create devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Common examples for beginner hobbyists include simple robots, thermostats and motion detectors. Adafruit Industries estimated in mid-2011 that over 300,000 official Arduinos had been commercially produced,[3] and in 2013 that 700,000 official boards were in users' hands.[4] History[edit]

10 essential Counter Strike: Source maps A lot of Counter Strike: Source games take place every day. In fact, it's still the second most popular title on Steam (coming in just after the original Counterstrike). You can understand why some players might be hungry for a little variety. We've compiled a list of some of the most inventive and fun user-made maps around. From short range gunfights to spectacular physics engine acrobatics we've got them all, and if new maps don't do it for you, why not check out our top weapon mod list instead? 1. aim_ag_texture2

Neoprene Bend Sensor IMPROVED Better results and slimmer design, this Instructable improves on the previously posted Fabric Bend Sensor. Previous Instructable >> Fabric Bend Sensor Using neoprene, Velostat, conductive thread and stretch conductive fabric to sew your own fabric bend sensor. Motion sensor v2 built and in use - Digits Domotica Blog Two motion sensors v2 are in use right now, yippee! I upgraded an existing v1 sensor to a v2 and built a new one. The v2 sensor specs are very different from the v1 but much more promising, yet all i needed to do to was soldering the digital output of the PIR to another JeeNode port (namely ATmega INT1) and use a different digital port for serial I/O with the XBee. Oh, and upload a new sketch of course. Now i have 2 identical v2 sensors:

Arduino and DS18B20 - 1-wire digital thermometer Finally got this DS18B20 working. Actually three of them. And in two modes. Parasite power mode and main mode. A 4.7K ohm resistor is the key. Starting with the main mode, three wires are needed, as this sensor has three pins.
