I2C – Everything you need to know

15 Sep , 2016  

There is no need for a wordy introduction to I2C protocol. We all know it’s main parts – 2 wires, multiple slaves, sometimes multiple masters, up to 5MHz of speed. Often so have we all implemented an I2C connection. Still, every now and then, there’s that module that just won’t work. This time, we will do […]

Microcontrollers have a Heart too

7 Sep , 2016  

Heart rate sensors are an interesting way to use IR LEDs (Infared Light-Emitting Diodes) and photo diodes to find a hearts’ pulse. Amazingly, the intensity of light received through the photo diode is actually different depending on how much blood is in your arteries. In this blog we will cover a photodiode’s basic operation, and how […]

MCP2003B Click – Implement the LIN protocol

20 Jul , 2016  

LIN, short for Local Interconnect Network, is a network protocol used in serial communication between different components inside of vehicles. “Wait, isn’t CAN used in vehicles?” yes, somewhere, but implementing CAN protocol between all the components of a car turned out to be too expensive for manufacturers, so an agreement had to be made. Most […]

Visual TFT – Part 2: Events, buttons, check boxes

24 Jun , 2016  

Last time we talked about Visual TFT, we went over the basics: we created a project, configured our project settings, and played with the basic components (boxes, circles, lines and labels). That’s all fine and well, but the current project is not interactive with the end user. So what if we want to add a couple […]

CAN Bus

22 Jun , 2016  

Why doesn’t my car have a USB port? What is this big connector that looks like something connected to a 90’s Television? Does that jack represent something better than most supported and favored USB or at least something simpler like UART? If you don’t know answers to this questions – this post if for you to learn what is the protocol that stands behind […]
