Python wins the TIOBE Programming Language Award of 2010! Python programmers love this language’s simplicity and it has become a very useful tool for those who love fast prototyping and quick development time. It has been proven useful in a lot of areas: – GUI programming (such as wxPython) – Engineering calculations and computations (such […]
We recently did a little demo to send data to an Arduino with a TCP/IP Shield (using ATC-1000M) from an Android device via Wifi. The Android phone in this demo uses Android Scripting Environment (ASE). It is available on Android Market for free. Videos and source code after the break.
The Renesas RX62N is a demonstration kit for a Renesas controller chip. The controller has a boat-load of features: 32-bits, DMA, 9 DSP instructions, Connectable SDRam Interface, 10/100Mbps Ethernet Controller, USB 2.0 with OTG possible, CAN module, AD converter, DA converter, 100MHz max operating frequency, CRC Calculator, plus many more. The demo board has a […]
The goal of this tutorial is to use the ATC-1000M with the Arduino. Our ATC-1000M came integrated in a TCP/IP to serial shield. This shield can be used by an Arduino to connect to a LAN or wireless router.
Here’s our first test of the USB to serial mode of the USB Infrared Toy. We used it with a UART-based RFID card reader. Pictures and a sample Python script after the break. The USB IR Toy is $20, including worldwide shipping. Every sale supports this open source project.
Last week we wrote some software for a GSM (cellular) modem module. The GSM modem is controlled by AT commands, like an old landline modem. Debugging is usually done by typing AT commands into Hyperterminal or the Bus Pirate. We got tired of tapping out tons of AT commands by hand, so we created an […]
