Controlling a Stepper Motor with an SIRC TV Remote and a PICAXE: Infrared Capabilities

This is part one of a two-part project. For part one, we will focus on IR remotes and signaling, as well as IR reception and decoding. Using IR (InfraRed) radiation to control electronic devices is widely accepted and implemented. IR devices are routinely used in alarm systems, automatic door openers, and similar applications. This project makes use of coded IR emissions from a Sony TV remote, and a PICAXE ...

How to Shrink Your Arduino Projects: Making a Permanent Circuit Board

When you make a project using Arduino, it usually contains a lot of jumper connections on the breadboard and the project will not be a permanent one. If you want to make any other project using that Arduino, you will have to remove all the connections made on it and to rebuild the same project, you need to start over again. Shrinking Arduino projects makes them smaller in size, appealing, and permanent. So ...
