Program an ATmega168/328 with codebender

If you want to use an inexpensive ATmega168 or ATmega328p for your project, but you want the simplicity of the arduino code and codebender, this tutorial will guide you through! A brand new ATmega microcontroller does not come preconfigured to use with Arduino code. So to use one of these you normally need a high cost ATMEL ISP programmer to burn the Arduino bootloader into your ATmega. Thankfully there is ...

Wireless Arduino with half mile (1km) range

We’re thrilled with the amount of support we’ve received. Now that we’ve reached our campaign funding goal we have some exciting new goals in mind. If we are able to hit a new funding target of $150,000 we will add a dual DC motor (or single stepper motor) driver shield to our offerings. Great for robotics projects and lots of other really neat things! Based on the ST L298 motor driver chip, the Flutter Mot ...

Tic-Tac USBtinyISP Programmer

What's with mint boxes and electronics? Beats me, but they are somehow made for each other. I had built ladyada's USBtinyISP v1.0 circuit on a breadboard which I used every other day. It worked sporadically(and never at hour of need), used up half of my breadboard and looked ugly. So I decided to try my hand at home PCB fabrication and build it in, of course, a tiny tic-tac box. Since I was a beginner, the ...
