  • NameArduino Hardware Reset Circuit Breadboard

  • NameThe Knob
  • Bymadworm
  • %md% The problem: an existing project (maxed out in terms of free code-space on the chip) would strongly benefit from having a rotary encoder knob attached to it. The project already has serial comms running, so using that would be the simplest thing. I could of course re-spin the board, but that...
  • NameIR switch with PWM
  • Bymadworm
  • Small, ATtiny85-based IR switch, capable of PWM control. It is made to work with a Vishay TSOP38238 IR sensor, but in principle works with any one of them that is out there. It doesn't do any protocol decoding, but just compares incoming IR patterns with stored ones. It therefore can work with an...
