A Collection of Things I’ve Tried
Welcome to my little corner of the internet… and my cave.
Low cost electronic devices don’t always have readily available documentation and when they do, they are translated to a form of English that requires a bottle of Tylenol to understand.
Here you will find some of my online manuals, projects and curated web content for these cool, yet poorly documented widgets
Mastering voltage measurements is just one of those things you need to do if you hope to build the coolest of projects.
This collection of articles not only discusses voltage measurements, but introduces techniques and devices that make better measurements possible.
Monitoring current is also important in many forms of device control. I’ve tried a few of these current measuring devices.
Understanding and mastering temperature measurement’s is key to building something that lasts more than a week.
In my display section I list articles that I have written for displays that I have actually experiment with. The intent is to make it so you can actually get a display like one of these to work the first time.
There are tons of devices that can be used as input to your Arduino. How you condition that input or control other devices is where creativity begins to explode.
In this section I present the devices I have connected up to an Arduino and show you how to do the same.
These include motors, SD cards, LEDs, relays and more.
Each of the articles shows the basics of device control and includes illustrations and sketches.
If you invest a little time in mastering it, you will be producing quality displays in no time.
The articles in this section provide illustrations and sample sketches to jump start your learning.
Like the Adafruit GFX, this library supports a bunch of displays.
This section is where I am collecting articles that I write about this library.
Everything built was done using components discussed on this site.
This is the place that catches everything else.
You will need to power sensors that operate at different levels or require more current than your USB port can provide.
This page will take you to power supplies and converters that I have experimented with.
