WiLoader - WiFi programmer for Arduino (AVR)Print



New kickstarter project - WiLoader.
WiLoader is fully supported in Arduino IDE. Easily, you can upload your code to your project with Arduino (AVR) through WiFi.
WiLoader has WiFi-UART bridge called WiCOM.

The price of base board is $29 - only WiLoader and headers.
For $49 you get programmer + EVK pack (Mini Breadboard, ATMega328P, crystal, resistors, PIR sensor and another components for development).

Arduino in Eclipse IDE - SloeberPrint



Arduino IDE wouldn't be comfortable for all of makers. Is it a lot alternatives to Arduino IDE like Visual Studio, Codebender a another.
I think that Eclipse has one of the best editor for writing of codes. Arduino IDE hasn't to much options.

I wrote a news about Programino IDE here, and created video on youtube.

I was looking for Arduino IDE based on Eclipse and I found Sloeber - the Eclipse Arduino IDE....

Time-of-Flight shield for Nucleo64 (photogallery)Print



VL53L0X is electronics component for measurement of distance.
The base principle is beam of light which is reflected from object and received to back. This time is measured by microcontroller in VL53L0X. From these values you can calculate distance of object from VL053L0X.

The transmitter is 940nm laser VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser). This technology is excelent for higher immunity of measurement against ambient light.

The distance can be up to 2 m (6.56 feet). Data are sent to host device through I2C bus (up to 400 KHz). The power consumption during measurement is maximal 19 mA, for SW standby 6 uA, for HW standby 5 uA.

STMicroelectronics released shield for Nucleo64 with this component. One component is included directly on top of shield, two components are called as satellite - VL053LX0 connected through 10 pin header....

CHIP computer: USB webcamPrint

We know the CHIP computer, we connected to WiFi, we used UART, we tried WiFi speed connection and USB flashdisc, we measured power consumption during the boot and after boot and we blinked with LED.
Today, we use USB webcam. At first I wrote that's very easy and you can you use it for a Raspberry Pi Zero, a Raspberry Pi, a BeagleBone, an Odroid and another SBC's, where you use a debian or fork of the debian (an ubuntu, a minibian etc.). It's very simple.
