ESP8266 posible breadboard interface

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Soynerdito has been working on a small hardware adapter for ESP8266-WIFI Uart module: Idea is to provide a small board to allow connecting the ESP8266 ver ESP02 to a breadboard. It is kept small so the price is cheap. A small batch was ordered to oshpark and waiting for order to arrive to...

Open hardware USB to RS485 adapter

Monday, December 9th, 2013

Ethan Zonca of Protofusion writes: While developing the Luma RS485-networked LED driver we discovered a need for a small and inexpensive USB to RS485 adapter. We designed an adapter with a FTDI basic UART chip (FT230XS) and an inexpensive TI differential receiver (SN75176). Our small selection of parts brings the...

Using LTC1100 as precision voltage adapter

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Kerry Wong wrote about building a precision voltage adapter using LTC1100: LTC1100 is a zero-drift, precision instrumentation amplifier. Unlike LMP8358, it does not offer programmatic gain setting (the 8-pin package), and the gain is preset at 100. But LTC1100 has several advantages over LMP8358. For instance, while the typical gain non-linearity for...

Simple USB to UART adapter that works with 3.3V and 5V UART signals

Monday, January 9th, 2012

The serial UART is a common interface used by many chips and devices. Ginpb designed a USB-to-UART adapter that works with 3.3V and 5V UART signals. The device is based around the FTDI FT232BL USB-to-UART IC with an added 3.3V power supply. The different interface levels are selected by an...

Basic kludges: 5 minute SOIC-DIP adapter

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Here's a quick way to how to adapt an SOIC surface mount chip to replace a through-hole part. You can do this with stuff on your bench: a DIP IC socket, a few wires, and a wood scrap. Beautiful? Heck no. (More like slimy but satisfying.) But finding a way...

DIPtheDIL use dual row headers in a breadboard

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

After posting about SILtheDIL, we received another idea on how to break-out dual row headers. Victzh and Shaos made similar adapters that allow dual row headers to be used with a standard breadboard. They write: "it's more like "DILtheDIP" or "DIPtheDIL" :)". Via the forum.

DIY SILtheDIL adapter

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Many development modules come with DIL headers on each side of the board. This makes them totally unusable with a breadboard. To remedy this Arakis built an adapter that converts 2X20 dual row headers to a 40 pin single row of headers . It can either be used to directly...
