Fabrice Muller writes informing of this recent efforts using the STM32F429 Discovery Board to run a Sega emulator: Yesterday I made this adaptation from the Alessandro Rocchegiani sega master system emulator. You can seen the original work here. After trying … Read more
doub has been working on a development board for Lua programming: So this project is about packing a relatively fast microcontroller, but not complex enough to require a high level OS (like Linux for SoC-class chips), with a big RAM chip. … Read more
Here’s a SLENDUINO development board based on PIC12F683 by C/D: The idea of this project was born from the necessity of create projects focused to mobile; therefore PIC12F683-I/SN was almost immediately our first choice for the features of this microcontroller. Files available … Read more
Here’s Embedded Lab’s new development board for PIC12F series microcontrollers: The 12F series of PIC microcontrollers are handy little 8-pin devices designed for small embedded applications that do not require too many I/O resources, and where small size is advantageous. These … Read more
Torsten came across an interesting project on Kickstarter called Micro Python by Damien George. He writes: It has some very nice new design ideas as well as a totally new way of dealing with uC. I often do prototyping of a certain algorithm in python because … Read more
