ParallelProgrammer Instructions for building a parallel port programmer for the Arduino board (or any other Atmega8 chip). Allows you to program the board on Windows without any additional equipment. Cheap and fun. Boost Arduino Mega Capability with 512-KB SRAM & True Parallel Bus Expansion The Arduino MEGA-2560 is a versatile microcontroller board, but it has only 8 KB SRAM. SCIDYNE recently developed the XMEM+ to enhance a standard MEGA in two ways. It increases SRAM up to 512 KB and provides True Parallel Bus Expansion. The XMEM+ plugs on top using the standard Arduino R3 stack-through connector pattern. This enables you to build systems around multiple Arduino shields. Once enabled in software, the XMEM+ becomes an integral part of the accessible MEGA memory.

How To Shrink Your Projects For Arduino Ever since I started making projects for Arduino, I’ve had a desire to shrink them down to a single, small circuit board. One of my former projects, a Smart bike lighting was made on Arduino UNO, which limits the project’s success in terms of optimal size. For that purpose, I will introduce multiple ways to shrink your overall project by using different micro-controllers that run on the same Arduino language. Alternative Microcontrollers MOZZI Currently your Arduino can only beep like a microwave oven. Mozzi brings your Arduino to life by allowing it to produce much more complex and interesting growls, sweeps and chorusing atmospherics. These sounds can be quickly and easily constructed from familiar synthesis units like oscillators, delays, filters and envelopes.

How to Build a Digital Potentiometer Circuit with a MCP4131 In this project, we are going to show how to connect a digital potentiometer to a microcontroller so that we can control the resistance put out by the potentiometer in software. A digital potentiometer serves the same function as a potentiometer in hardware in that it varies resistance output. The difference is a digital potentiometer IC is controlled by software, while a regular potentiometer is controlled manually by a person. Just like a regular potentiometer, a digital Pot IC comes in all different values of resistance. The specific digital potentiometer we will use in this circuit is the MCP4131 IC. Arduino DAC Library and Shield - Laser-Lance Labs This is a software library for the Analog Devices precision DAC chips AD5724, AD5734, and AD5754 that works with the Arduino-based prototype boards. A shield is presently in development to accompany the library. Why this family of DAC chips? Using the Arduino platform, there are many ways to get an analog output from digital data. One way is to use a PWM output and then smooth the output with external circuity. Unfortunately, while this works, it does not provide the precision one might need when working with sensitive systems such as those in industrial control i.e. controlling the power of a laser, for instance.
