ESP8266: SSD1306 Oled Library Release

The “ESP8266 OLED SSD1306″ is an open source library which allows you to control those pretty OLED modules from our beloved ESP8266 module. Fabrice Weinberg cleaned up all the ugly pieces of code which I initially wrote caused by my near C/C++ illiteracy. He also added support for Pasko’s BRZO I2C library which is partially written in assembler and allows a much higher throughput over the I2C channel. Fabri ...

What is Rotary Encoder and How to Use It with Arduino

A Rotary encoder is an input device which helps the user to interact with a system. It looks more like a Radio potentiometer but it outputs a train of pulses which makes its application unique. When the knob of the Encoder is rotated it rotates in form of small steps which helps it to be used for stepper/Servo motor controlling, navigating through a sequence of menu and Increasing/decreasing the value of a ...

Arduino Bluetooth Tutorial HC-05

Bluetooth has been around for quite a while now. Being a common way to communicate with mobile phones, it was only natural to include this protocol in the Arduino arena.   Bluetooth is typically a low power, medium range device, in fact it can reach up to 10 meters. Bluetooth operates on the same frequencies as WiFi, 2.4Ghz.Connections are normally one to one meaning no group communication is allowed by the ...
