Playing Chess Against Arduino

This project has been developed with the “Games” contest in my mind, I hope you’ll like it and give your vote :) The idea of this project is quite simple. I want to simulate as many board games as possible using a simple electronic assembly. Of course, every game with its own software, which must be loaded into the simulators microcontroller. Thus, I could simulate games like: Ludo, Ladders and Snakes, Morr ...

A Beginner’s Guide to Arduino

After some years of experimenting with Arduino, I decided that the time has come to share the knowledge I've acquired. So I here it goes, a guide to Arduino, with the bare basics for beginners and some more advanced explanations for people who are somewhat more familiar with electronics. Every step will consist of a detailed explanation, then a summary, followed by a more advanced approach. If you're a comp ...

Fish Feeder 2

Introduction / Why this project In 2016 I build my first fish feeder, see Fish Feeder 1. The feeder worked fine for more then half a year. After that period the servos were worn out, causing the program to halt, without sending an error-mail. Oops. I didn’t had the time to correct this fault, because the aquarium was replaced by a slighter bigger version (Juwel Rio 125). Although the Fish Feeder 1 ...

Arduino Milliohm Meter

This is an accurate milliohm meter with a maximum resolution of 0.1mOhm. The design is very simple, the whole assembly can be built in a couple of hours once all the parts are gathered. It is based on a precision current sink and a high-resolution ADC controlled by an Arduino Nano V3. It uses a Kelvin connection with the resistor under test to exclude the resistance of test leads from the measurements. It c ...

70W soldering iron controller

Theory of operation In series thermocouple soldering iron have a thermocouple in series with their heating element and thus only have two connections (actually one more which is electrically connected to the tip for ESD purposes). When a voltage is applied to the two terminals the tip heats, when unpowered the thermocouple voltage can be read. This controller uses a skipped variable puls modulation to keep ...

TIME SYNC THROUGH YOUR VGA CONNECTOR

While it might be in its twilight years, the venerable VGA video connector conceals a versatile interface that  can still provide the experimenter with the opportunity for a variety of hacks. We’ve not seen anything quite like [flok]’s one, in which he uses the VGA interface to insert timing information from which an NTPd instance gets its reference. If this seems counter-intuitive because a VGA i ...
