Jean refers us to this article by Eric Wazhung about interfacing LVDS displays using an 8-bit AVR: Different displays have different (undocumented) functionality. With the several I’ve tested, I’ve attempted to create a step-by-step procedure to get a new display going (or find out early-on if it’s not possible. So far I haven’t run into one that […]
s3c writes: The Bus Pirate has to be one of the handiest debugging platforms ever created. It makes it really easy to ensure you know how something works before placing it in your final design. I recently decided to use some of the old refurbished 5110 LCD modules in a design, here’s a quick guide […]
asd has written an article on interfacing Adafruit 7-segment Backpack with Bus Pirate Bus pirate doesn’t do much by itself but needs some accompanying chip talk to. I got my hands on 7-segment display from Adafruit which has HT16K33 controller on it. HT16K33 chip is accessed via i2c protocol so it is good candidate to learn […]
Hertaville posted a detailed tutorial on interfacing the MCP23017 to the Raspberry Pi using C++ (SYSFS): In this blog entry I will demonstrate how to successfully interface the MCP23017 general purpose input/output (GPIO) expander from Microchip, to the Raspberry Pi over the I2C bus.
Jechavarria wrote a post on his blog detailing how to interface 8 LCD displays and 24 leds with only two wires: A couple of weeks ago, I just post a review of my MCP23017 breakout board. As the board configuration allows to connect up to 8 of these boards, I decided to do it and […]
Several recent posts have dealt with the topic of interfacing Arduino with devices using the Android operating system. Here’s another approach: Amarino. “Android meets Arduino” is a toolkit, basically consisting of an Android application and an Arduino library which will help you to interface with your phone in a new dimension. You can build your […]
jjshortcut interfaced the Wii Motion Plus controller with the Bus Pirate. I did some development with my bus pirate and now I’m able to read my Wii motion plus with my Bus Pirate over I2C What are you hacking? Let us know via the contact form. Get a Bus Pirate for $30, including worldwide shipping […]
Microcontroller USB interfaces are a lot more complicated than simple serial ports. WaitingForFriday.com has an extensive overview of PIC USB, including hardware, firmware, and computer interface. The same USB PIC peripheral is used in the Infrared Toy and Open Logic Sniffer. Via Hack a Day
