DS3231 RTC control and theory with the Bus Pirate

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

@omwah tweeted, "Article I wrote on controlling the Maxim DS3231 RTC with the Bus Pirate" The Maxim DS3231 is an accurate, yet relatively expensive real time clock (RTC). It has an integrated temperature compensated crystal and communicates over I2C. Get an assembled Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also...

DIY Binary clock in an old hard drive shell

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

x2Jiggy wrote a post on his blog detailing the build of his DIY binary clock: This clock uses a minimalist design constructed in the shell of an old hard drive. A DS1307 Real Time Clock (RTC) module keeps accurate time while an ATMega328 (with Arduino bootloader) microcontroller determines which LEDs should be...

Chronoduino board v0.3

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

The Chronoduino uses an Atmega168PA microprocessor. On the peripheral side there is a DS1337 RTC, a BMP085 barometric/temperature sensor, and a MCP73831 Li-Po battery charging IC. Numerous headers as well as two buttons, LED, and a buzzer are on the board. The idea behind the project is to design an Arduino watch platform (hence, quite...
