Analog Devices, Inc. announces the release of the ADuCRF101, a fully integrated System On Chip (SOC) solution designed for low power wireless applications. The ADuCRF101 integrates a low power Cortex-M3 core from ARM. It is a 32-bit RISC machine, offering up to 1.25 DMIPS peak performance. The Cortex-M3 MCU also has a flexible 14-channel DMA […]
According to thelocal.de a German hacker says he cracked the wireless LAN password of his neighbor in 20 minutes – using the cloud computing power available on Amazon in a demonstration which he says should sensitize people and businesses to security issues.
Project Lab provides the details on how to produce a wireless robotics platform using a cheap RC toy vehicle, Arduino, XBee and Processing. The vehicle is completely controlled by the code running on the remote computer which allows very rapid prototyping of the code to tell the vehicle what to do and how to react […]
Rtty21 has posted an Instructables project using the 555 timer to build an AM radio transmitter. By adding just a transistor, several capacitors, resistors and a 5K pot you will be on the air in the 600 kHz portion of the AM dial. While the range of this transmitter is relatively short, you could possibly […]
If you want to WiFi enable your Arduino but don’t want to spring for a shield, Todbot shows how to use the Asus WL-520gu router. By installing the DD-WRT Linux firmware the Asus acts as a serial-to-network gateway for Arduinos (or most any other USB device).
