Generally, there are two methods to load the program into Arduino: USB/Serial Communication method ISP method The first method is the most common method, which implemented using USB-to-serial adapter chip/converter. For example, CT-UNO is using FTDI FT23x chips which is a
If you are building your own Arduino, or need to replace the IC, you will need to load a bootloader program into the Atmega328 (on UNO and BBFuino). There are also cases where you have put your board into a
If you still remember the Arduino Fio (tutorial) where you can upload the Arduino sketch via Xbee (wireless). It is better if you have experience with it and of course you will love it because you can program your Arduino
Ever heard "Simon Says" game? For those who not familiar with Simon, this was an early electronics game from the 70's, where the user basically had to repeat back a sequence to the console to progress to the next level.
MiFare is a contactless smart card system which is being trademark by NXP Semiconductors. With MiFare reader/writer, useful information can be either read from or written into MiFare cards which will then be used in applications like electronic wallet, access control, corporate ID cards, transportation and so on.
In this tutorial, users will be guided to interface the DS3231 RTC module with both PIC and Arduino. The platform to be used for the PIC interface is the SK40C board with PIC16F887 while the platform to be used for Arduino interface is the BBFUINO board, which is Arduino compatible.
LED dot-matrix display is a good medium of displaying information in terms of text or image. More interestingly, texts or images displayed can be made animated instead static in place only. Some related applications are displaying advertisements, time, price of product and scoring.
