Sebastian writes: USB MIDI controllers (such as Launchpad Mini Mk II for example) are common and often quite low in cost. To interface such a controller with a Eurorack synth system, often a host computer and a MIDI to CV interface might be used. The host computer would take USB MIDI data from the MIDI […]
Giovanni Carrera blogged about his touch numeric keyboard for Arduino or Teensy: Very often, for our programs, we need a system to set parameters, usually of a numerical type. A 4×4 keyboard requires some space and then we also need a display. Here is the idea of using a touchscreen display to do both. I […]
Tisham Dhar blogged about his 3-phase synthesizer: Finding 3-phase is difficult, convincing the owner of the said supply to test some home made hardware is even more so. After building a 3-phase energy monitor my testing options for it appeared very limited. So I set about making my own low-cost 3-phase energy monitor calibration system. See […]
Erich Styger @ mcuoneclipse.com writes: Looking for a small, inexpensive ($25-30) ARM development board (say 120-180 MHz ARM Cortex-M4 with FPU, 512kB-1MB of FLASH and 256 KByte of RAM? Then have a look at the Teensy 3.5 and Teensy 3.6 by PJRC/Paul Stoffregen The only problem? it is not possible to debug it :-(. At […]
Giovanni Carrera writes, “This project uses a serial 40×4 LCD display with a Teensy board to realize a compact serial terminal receiver to be connected to many systems with serial output such as our microcontroller systems and GPS receivers.” More details at ArduPicLab blog.
An update on J3tstream’s Teensy GPS logger project we covered previously: The last and final design, the Teensy and GPS is directly powered from 3.7v li-on batt. Power button in red, black button to enable charging in case of using +5v AC adapter. SDCard socket is mounted at the back of pcb. Project info at […]
Paul over at DorkbotPDX has written an article on Teensy Audio Library with S/PDIF support: Thanks to the amazing effort of Frank Boesing, the Teensy Audio Library now has native S/PDIF output. Using a $1 TOSLINK connector, or just a red LED, you can get optical S/PDIF digital audio output.
Thrifleganger wrote this instructable detailing his Teensy MIDI USB foot controller for controlling Mobius Looper: The concept is quite simple and straightforward. You press a button, the arduino interprets the signal arriving from the button as a midi “control change” signal (typically represented as MIDI CC), and this signal can be mapped to respond to any of […]
EmbeddedCreations writes: I’ve been working on a new version of the SmartMatrix Shield, not meant to replace it, but to be an option for those that want to maximize the capabilities of the Teensy, while connecting to a matrix display. Let’s call it the SmartMatrix Shield Pro. This board will have the advantage of pinout/functionality, […]
Here is an open source earthquake sensor based on the Wii Nunchuk. A Teensy is used to read the I2C accelerometer output: This article explores the suitability of a Wii nunchuk based USB accelerometer as an earthquake sensor for the Quake-Catcher Network (QCN) project. It examines the nunchuk over several metrics: precision and range, frequency response, […]
Dave Kennedy (ReL1K) presented this talk at last summer’s Defcon 19 conference demonstrating the relative insecurity of home automation devices, such as X10, HomePlug and ZWave modules, which communicate either locally over power lines or via RF in the ISM bands. The presentation covers usage of the Teensy Arduino-based device to emulate a keyboard when […]
Adrian Crenshaw (“Irongeek”) has released the project details and code for his latest hardware keylogger. If you have a Teensy board and ever thought about experimenting with keyloggers you’ll find everything you need in Adrian’s project description. You simple connect the Teensy between a female PS/2 connector and an SD card adapter and grab the […]
Our forum regular Marcus posted a SSD1308 OLED interface library and pin connections to get you started with your Arduino/Teensy OLED projects. The display is a 0.96” 128 x 64 dot matrix that can be interfaced though both I2C or SPI interfaces, the library Marcus provides is SPI only and should allow you to get […]
Paul Stoffregen over at PJRC sent us a link to this video highlighting how to modify the Arduino IDE by editing the boards.txt file to allow the compiler to use precompiled files. This helps to speed up the overall compile and upload process. A cool enhancement originally developed for the Teensyduino board. Paul submitted this […]
If you’ve got a Guitar Hero and have the urge to cheat here’s the circuit for you. Johnny Chung Lee at Procrastineering has developed a Teensy based circuit and program which analyzes the video stream from the game console to autonomously play the game. Via Hack a Day.
