Arduino Blog » The Arduino Wifi Shield is now available

August 25, 2012

1

The Arduino WiFi Shield is a new tool from Arduino guys. They decided to create a shield with many features, and it costs more than the other shields (more than twice than the Ethernet shield). The reason why they made this shield so complex is to have the possibility to use it alone, without an […]

Arduino creator talks at TED

June 30, 2012

Massimo Banzi is one of the creators of the Arduino project. He recently did a wonderful talk at TED Global (here the post about it on the official Arduino Blog, if you wanna show some love). At 4:20 he shows a screenshot that could have been taken from my blog post about Arduino schematics, given […]

JTAGWhisperer: Arduino as a XSVF programmer

February 5, 2012

0

Dangerous Prototypes features an interesting project, that is similar to my JTAGduino idea. JTAGWhisperer is a solution to program FPGAs and CPLDs using Arduino and a small client-side Python script. It reads files in the XSVF format, which stands for Xilinx Serial Vector Format and is one of the formats used to program Xilinx chips. […]

Ongoing project: Arduino as a JTAG adapter

I started a project to try to use Arduino as a JTAG interface to perform debugging, programming and scans. The objective is to have a setup like the following diagram: The complete project should include: Arduino sketch OpenOCD integration Python API Arduino shield with common connectors etc. In particular the shield should have: Level shifters between […]

A thesis on Arduino

April 18, 2011

I’m reading an interesting university thesis on Arduino, from Fabio Varesano’s blog, that I follow: My MoS Thesis: Using Arduino for Tangible Human Computer Interaction | Varesano.net. This thesis is a useful resource especially for people with a Computer Science background; it can generate many project ideas and arm any hobbyist with the tools to […]

Programming Arduino Uno in pure C

March 29, 2011

71

Playing with Arduino board and its graphical development environment I felt the urge to work closer to the hardware, stepping away from the default library and the Java IDE and using the compiler directly from the command line. Fortunately all the tools are there, because the Arduino IDE uses them under the hood. So I […]

Capturing an analog signal with Arduino and python

March 26, 2011

1

Last week I salvaged a magnetic sensor from a stationary bike and connected it to my Arduino Uno in order to analyze the sensor’s behavior with the ADC converters.   I wanted to capture a good enough signal, so I searched about the Arduino capabilities: From analogRead() reference description: It takes about 100 microseconds (0.0001 […]
