madworm writes: Just wanting to share one of my latest projects, made possible by DirtyPCBs. I got a lot of good boards (actually 2 designs) and saved 25$ using this service. Very nice. It’s a simple thing, just a micro (ATmega168) + a bunch of WS2812B LEDs. Main purpose: more colours :-) It’s meant to […]
Haris Andrianakis wrote a post on his blog detailing his power line communication system: The main purpose was to implement two devices communicating each other, using the technology of power line. Specifically, at this project the communication has been used to send data from a weight bridge/ weight machine to a remote display. For the power line communication has […]
Ronald of ermicroblog writes: The I2C (read as I square C) smart DC motor controller is designed using the Atmel 8-bit AVR Atmega168 microcontroller and configured to act as the I2C slave device where it could be controlled by other microcontroller or microprocessor through the I2C SDA (serial data) and SCL (serial clock) interface. In the first […]
Here’s a tutorial from Protostack for beginners on how to read and write EEPROM on the Atmega 168 and display the values on an attached LCD. Includes source code in C.
Dan Stahlke built an open source homebrew power usage meter based on the Atmega168. The project stores the measurements on an SD card. Just might be the ticket for monitoring holiday display power usage. Via Electronics-lab.
