Arduino Mega Tutorial – Pinout & Schematics

First of all, Why Arduino Mega? When cheaper boards are available, why go with Arduino Mega? The main reason behind this is the additional features that are inbuilt with this board. First feature is the large I/O system design with inbuilt 16 analog transducers and 54 digital transducers that supports with USART and other communication modes. Secondly, it has inbuilt RTC and other features like analog compa ...

Graphene Patterned at Room Temp

LAKE WALES Fla.—Graphene is easily grown with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) on copper foil, but a simple way of etching out the necessary circuit patterns and transferring them to a non-metallic substrate has eluded engineers. Now researchers at the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) claim to have a one-step room temperature process for quickly patterning and transferring graphene circuits to flexi ...

Arduino with ESP8266 – Reading Data from Internet

The ESP8266-01 has been a great module to quench all our thirsts for IOT projects. Since its release, it has developed a strong community and evolved into an easy to use, cheap and powerful Wi-Fi module. Another open-source platform which is much more popular is the Arduino, it already has tons of projects built around it. Combining these two platforms will open up doors for many innovative projects, so in ...

Reef Controller

A Reef / Saltwater Aquarium controller based on an Arduino Mrk1000 and controlled remotely by an Universal Windows Platform app. Story On a reef tank the temperature and lighting schedule are critical functions that can't be left to a person to do manually. A completely automatic system isn't good when you need to do maintenance on the tank or if something happens when you're away. So an automatic controlle ...

Temperature Controled Charcoal Smoker

Use an Arduino MKR1000 to maintain a constant temperature in a charcoal smoker and allow monitoring over Wifi, Story The Backstory Most serious BBQ smokers know that the best flavor comes from using charcoal to heat their smokers. Propane and electric smokers have better temperature control, but lose that charcoal flavor. As a heat source, charcoal can be a pain. You need to constantly monitor the temperatu ...

Multiple mode Environmental Sensor Deck with MKR1000

Many fun environmental sensors need a hardware interrupt. With the MKR1000, you no longer need to choose! You get I2C, analog ins too! Story I love watching the weather, and I wanted to try to capture and graph it. Home weather stations let me see the details for "now", and sometimes tallies for the past hour, or day. I wanted to do more, and use an Arduino for the job. Everyone starts with Temperature and ...

How to Select a Resistor

When I was working on the next version of Common Parts Library, I realized that it would be helpful to explain why you might pick one type of passive component over another. We started off by writing “How to Select a Capacitor” last month, and are following it up with a close look at resistors this month. In this blog, we will explain all the different types of resistors, their merits and demerits, and popu ...
