Pulse Operations with the 16-Bit Micro Experimenterby Thomas Kibalo Time to add more tools to your Experimenter board! This month, we’ll look at the digital pulse capture and generation capabilities.
Thermoelectric Powered Sunflowers by John Iovine This summer, create a nice evening ambience using a thermoelectric generator that gets its power from the sun.
Make the Bike Blinker Plus by David G. Bodnar As a cyclist, not only will you be more visible at night with this handy gadget that fits into your helmet, you’ll also know the air temperature!
Build the WatchPuppy by Jim Sky Keep your unattended computers working in the event of a software crash with this device that can reboot your modem, router, or other networking device when needed. You can also use the WatchPuppy as a remote monitoring device for temperature or voltages. This is an open-ended project that can be expanded to meet your specific needs.
Techknowledgey by Jeff Eckert TechKnowledgey 2010 Artificial black hole created, your own teleprompter, talking with pedal power, plus other stuff you’ll find interesting.
PICAXE Primer by Ron Hackett Introducing Tex and Rex: The IR Twins In this month’s column, we’re going to re-visit the infrared realm, but this time we’re going to take a different approach and develop two very simple IR boards — each of which serves only one specific function. Rex will be our IR receiver and Tex will transmit IR signals to Rex.

The Design Cycle by Fred Eady Taking USB Downstream Up to this point, we’ve been working our USB device magic on an upstream connection to a USB host. The time has come to take on USB host responsibilities and originate a downstream connection from the Type A USB connector of a USB host we will design and assemble.
Open Communication by Louis E. Frenzel Crystal Clock Oscillators: The Heart of All Communications Products If you look inside any electronic product today, there are a few circuits and components that are common to all of them. For example, every product contains at least one microcontroller that runs it. Another circuit that you will see — especially in communications products — is a crystal oscillator or clock. This circuit generates precise timing signals that control everything else — including that microcontroller. In communications gear like radios, that crystal is the source of the exact opera.
Smiley’s Workshop by Joe Pardue Smileys Workshop: An AVR C Programming Series (Part 25) AVR Memory Part 3: Program Memory In A Flash!
How a Capacitor Works The function of a capacitor is to store an electrical charge. In this circuit, we will watch an LED slowly dim as the capacitor discharges.
