Beyond the Arduino — Part 3by Andrew Retallack This time, we’ll focus on interacting with the bare-metal microcontroller by handling both digital and analog inputs.
How to Use a Transistor as a Switchby Roger Secura Whether you need to flash an LED, energize a relay, turn a buzzer or alarm on or off, or invert a voltage level, the NPN transistor switch can easily solve your problem. This article shows you how to use a transistor as a simple SPST switch.
Fix Up that Old Radio!by J.W. Koebel It’s fun and easy to bring vintage radios back to life! Follow along as a 1937 DeWald radio is restored.
Receiving Data with a Low Cost Shortwave Radioby George R. Steber A computer, some powerful software, and a shortwave receiver combine to make decoding many types of radio transmissions possible.
Build the Retro Regen Radioby Dick Whipple This back-to-the future one-tube radio is made with readily available parts, operates on 12 volts, and offers amazing performance.
Q&A by Tim Brown Reader Questions Answered Here A question on op-amp accuracy, getting certified, and some tips on batteries.
PICAXE Primer by Ron Hackett PICAXE-PC Serial Communication — Part 1 We’ll continue our experiments with the Prolific cable, but this time focus on sending data back and forth between a PICAXE processor and a PC.
The Ham’s Wireless Workbench by H. Ward Silver RF Oscillators Move up in frequency to the oscillators which make the signals that drive the ham’s wireless world.
Open Communication by Louis E. Frenzel Serial I/O Data Interfaces: Part 2 Get familiar with the high speed gigabit serial interfaces that dominate I/O today since we all use at least one of these regularly.
The Design Cycle by Fred Eady Wi-Fi on the Big Wire Classic embedded Wi-Fi web servers based on microcontrollers have met their match. The ACKme Numbat stuffs an ARM microprocessor, Wi-Fi radio, TCP/IP stack, UART, real time clock, multiple GPIO pins, analog-to-digital converters, PWM generators, SPI portals, 1 MB of serial Flash, and an I2C interface into a 0.8” x 0.6” x 0.11” SMT package. All you need is a PC serial port and a terminal emulator to gain access to the Numbat’s rich set of resources.
