MOSFET 101 - 2 lessons learned and a working AVR project

As I am making the circuit board for shelf light with an Atmel Atmega168 and a Mosfet, I came to the point where power was let loose from the 240V wild wall horse on my first Atmega project. 478 more words


My Current Thanks Inventory

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18, KJV)

When was the last time that you stopped and did a written “Thanks Inventory?” I believe that we should make it a practice much more regularly than is typical. 748 more words


Shelf light AVR with pulse width modulation PWM

As you read, I’m making a shelf light controlled by an Atmega 168 on a circuit board I’ve laid out fairly simple.

The requirements for the board is to… 634 more words


Expansion possibilities with shelf light.

My shelf needs light, and I am making a simple circuit to control the light, based on an Atmega 168 and a transistor. It will have indicator lights, a switch, input power and output power. 361 more words


Arduino Pro Mini vs. Pro Trinket...FIGHT!

Since I just fried my only two 5V Arduino Pro Minis (see previous post,) Now I’m shopping around for replacements. The Arduino Pro Minis I designed my project around are designed and produced by… 413 more words


Stellaris Launchpad - Starting with ARM Microcontrollers

Last year I ordered a Stellaris Launchpad Evaluation Board from Texas Instruments for $12.99. It arrived through FedEx in 3-4 days (free shipping!).

Update 1: They have changed the brand names from Stellaris to Tiva.  758 more words
