DC Boarduino – A Clone Will Make It Good

Did you ever have this experience before? You’ve been struggled to use a solderness breadboard with an Arduino, and you know how annoying it can be. Now, you can dump all of the frustrating into the dumpsite with this new DC Boarduino. This DC Boarduino is a clone that can works with the latest Arduino software. The assembly is so easy to operate and well documented. DC Boarduino features: Well designed to plug into a breadboard Its only sized 3″ x 0.8″ (75mm x 20mm) All pins were brought out – Digital 0 thru 13, Analog 0 thru 5, ARef, 5V, Ground, Vin and Reset A preprogrammed “no-wait” Arduino bootloader 2 LEDs, green power and red “pin 13” Low cost that everyone can affordable All through-hole parts Reset button ATmega168, running at 16.00 MHz 6-pin standard ICSP header Standard 2.1mm DC jack with 5V regulator 6-pin header at the end for a USB-TTL cable Auto-reset capability (with the used of USB-TTL cable) The only matter is this DC Boarduino doesn’t include a USB chip, so you will want an FTDI… Continue reading

The Multiple Useful USB7

For those of electronic fans/lovers, you must very familiar with the LED display stuff. Well, today I would like to introduce you this USB7, which it can be used in multi electronic tasks. The USB7 is a six-digit LED display, and it is normally controlling by a USB virtual COM port. The USB virtual COM port (AVR-CDC) is an USB-RS232C interface that using CDC (Communication Device Class) protocol on USB 1.1. The biggest advantage of using CDC is its can works extremely well on low speed USB with slower speed (This mean with an ATtiny 45 enough to accelerate the 4800bps 8N1) and thus, we can save a lot of money as the ATtiny 45 is so far is the cheapest component for USB-232C interface type project. Some of the cool features for USB7: Simple ASCII code that enables it’s to controls all display functions The all through hole parts and pre-programmed microcontroller features The kits are provide in three colors, with standard 0.56″ common anode display format The PCB available in: Regular Version and With Mounting Holes Version.
