    Re: Goodbye

    It's strange how the Arduino platform gets lumped in with the raspberry pi and other single board computers, but the two are so far apart. Unlike the Pi and other single board computers, the arduino...

    Re: Strange issue with SSR

    Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up swapping the SSR for another and the unit is working as it should.

    All loads for channels 1 -3 are the same (100w), with channel 4 being 150w, so not...

    Strange issue with SSR

    Guys, I'm building a thermostat project that uses G3MB-202P solid state relays, and have a strange issue with one of these outputs.

    Basically 5v comes from the micro (in this case its an arduino)...

    I tried Amtel Studio 7 which is a very good alternative to the basic Arduino IDE, and offers a lot of extra tools.

    As I've mentioned elsewhere, I too made the switch because you can get up and...

    To a degree yes. The ATMEGA 2560 is an 8 bit micro running at 16mhz, with 256 KB of program space, but its in a 100 pin TQFP package which makes programming and soldering to a custom hobby PCB more...

    Re: Goodbye

    You can pick up an Arduino Mega2560 board for around 10, and you can also pick up just the chip (probably for around the same amount) but the package if the chip does not make it practical to...

    I have to agree. I dare say most things like TFT screens, Ethernet etc that doesn't have native commands in PBP could be used could work with the aid of asm code etc, but then IMO that then defeats...
