ATtiny85 for Simple Projects: Arduino Basics

Bare bones: The ATtiny85 on its Own The ATtiny is a small, inexpensive chip that can replace the Arduino in a project you have prototyped. This helps make the project smaller and more permanent, as well as freeing up the Arduino for more fun! The chip comes in a few different types – ones with more flash memory, lower power, and so forth. The ATtiny is great if you want to program a bunch of chips in a row, ...

Build an inexpensive handheld Arduino color console

Arduino Pro Mini 3.3V 8 MHz As most inexpensive LCDs work at 3.3v the Arduino for this project works at 3.3v too. At only 8MHz the Arduino Pro Mini 3.3v is slow by today's standards but fast enough for most classic games. Other Arduinos or compatibles can be used in its place. If an 5v Arduino like the Uno is used you must use a Level shifter from 5v to 3.3v or you'll risk frying the TFT. 2.2" TFT 240x320 S ...

Arduino DMX Tester – Inexpensive Tester for Sending DMX-512

Hello All, I work part-time (more of a hobby) in the lighting industry and use DMX since it is the industry standard for communicating or controlling devices (lighting fixtures, controllers, consoles, etc..)  I have seen commercial DMX testers on the market but I wanted to create my own. I have been working on an idea to create a low cost (<$50), Arduino based DMX tester. The tester would provide the fol ...
