ST Nucleo F103RB works with OpenOCD 0.8.0

November 11, 2014


Full disclosure: I work at ST Microelectronics, but what I write here is purely my opinion and my work, conceived and conducted in my spare time. The ST Nucleo boards are development platforms mounting an STM32 microcontroller, made for the same enthusiasts that are attracted to Arduino and the like. They have between 64KiB and 512KiB of […]

Using a buzzer with Arduino in pure C

October 15, 2014


Since one of my most viewed posts is Programming Arduino Uno in pure C, I wanted to write other posts about common Arduino functionalities implemented in C instead of the default language. This post is part of a series about programming Arduino applications in C, using a Debian computer with avr-gcc compiler. This time I’m using a buzzer […]

JTAGduino: JTAG connection using Arduino

August 10, 2014


One of my personal project ideas is JTAGduino: using Arduino as a JTAG adapter. I wrote a couple of posts about it, and today I managed to connect it to a real target. All the code that I used here is present on my JTAGduino GitHub repository. I have an Olimex STM32-P152 board, and I […]

Features of the new Arduino YÚN

September 2, 2013


Arduino YÚN is a new product in the Arduino family. It’s a board with the same form factor as the typical Arduino, but contains an application processor running Linux, and modern flexible connectivities such as Ethernet, WiFi and USB. Here’s an introductory video from the creators: The Arduino YÚN features are described in a blog post in the official […]

Arduino street

February 10, 2013


This weekend I attended the Historical Carnival of Ivrea. During our tour of the old city center, I stumbled upon this street with a familiar name… One of Arduino‘s founding fathers, Massimo Banzi, was a teacher in Ivrea, and chose a famous historical figure of the city as the name of their open source project.

A sad goodbye to a real maker

January 19, 2013


I did not know Fabio Varesano personally, but I studied some of his work and followed his activities. He wrote an applied thesis on Arduino and his projects led to the manufacturing of the FreeIMU sensors platform and many other solutions. Today I learned that he’s gone. Suddenly, unexpectedly and too early. It’s obvious that he had the […]

Makeblock: the body of your open hardware projects.

December 23, 2012


I have always been the LEGO kid. I especially liked the space sets, but I understood quite soon that the Technic series was the best for me. A couple of times in my life, when I wanted solutions to small physical problems such as “how can I fit this webcam to the top of monitor?”, […]
