There is so much amazingly cool "stuff" to see and do that I'm amazed I find the time to get any real work done. In my blog I will waffle on about the books I'm reading, the projects I'm building, and the weird and wonderful websites I blunder across. Please Email Me if you see anything you think will "tickle my fancy."

I was just chatting with Mike Phipps over at Micriµm about things I can't talk about here. Fortunately, that's not what I wanted to talk about here. Before we proceed, I did notice Phipps has a really cool image as part of his email signature.   I love the "Quality tha......

It's incredible that one of the early microcontroller cores, the 8bit Intel 8051, is still going strong. It was first introduced more than 30 years ago in 1981. Of course, the fact that billions and billions of controllers based on this core have been sold has a lot to do with this. This is ......

Lately, I have been really happy playing with my Arduino Mega. I even enjoy wrestling with bugs in my programs—that "Ah Ha!" moment when you realise why things aren't working just the way you expected. Thus far, I've been using the IDE's default Serial.Print() command......

It may already be apparent that I'm having a wonderful time playing with a number of different Arduino-based projects, ranging from my Robot Platform to my Infinity Mirror. When I first started writing my little software programs, I borrowed some code from my chum Mike Field (a.k.a. The Migh......

As you may recall, I earlier discussed the creation of a rather cunning prototyping board—a dual-board combo, actually—that is being designed by my chum Duane Benson for use with my Arduino Mega. I'm happy to report that this is well on the way; the design data was handed over to t......

Just like many of us these days, I've grown used to multi-tasking. In my case this involves writing articles while answering telephone calls and handling email. Perhaps I'd be more efficient if I multi-tasked less and focused on individual tasks more. When I'm ensconced in my command......

I must admit that I am quite excited about my project to build a pedagogical and phantasmagorical inamorata prognostication engine. Key decisions have been made, interesting developments have developed, and all sorts of things are coming together. One slight issue: I have been unable to locate a......

In the recent weeks, I've been happily playing with Adafruit's NeoPixels. Sad to relate, I just ran into a slight problem, which may have taken out one of my NeoPixel Rings. Fortunately, there is a solution. Now, before we plunge headfirst into the fray, I'd like to start by saying t......

I had a chat with a friend several days ago (indeed, I have friends, thank you very much). This guy knows a bit about electronics, but he's not really involved in depth. When started talking about printed circuit boards (PCBs), the impression he had was that all one really needed to design one......

Luke Miller is a freelance FPGA design consultant and EE Times blogger. He also has a hitherto unknown talent for cartooning. As you may recall, Luke's recent project was the design of a GPS-Driven, FPGA-Decoded Nixie Tube Speedometer (I so want one of these little beauties in my own truck).......
