Millisecond tracking library for AVR

This is a lightweight library for keeping track of time to millisecond accuracy, the data type for storing milliseconds can be easily configured, it supports ‘unsigned long long’ which can keep track of time for 584.9 million years before overflowing! Any clock frequency up to 20MHz can be used, most of the commonly used frequencies …

nRF905 AVR/Arduino Library/Driver

The nRF905 is a radio transceiver IC similar to the well known nRF24L01, but operates at 433/898/915MHz instead of 2.4GHz, has a much longer range and a few extra IO pins. However the nRF905 data rate is only 50Kbps compared to nRF24L01’s 2Mbps. This library offers quite a bit of flexibility: Optional use of interrupts, …

First time with Arduino and AVR microcontrollers

I had been eying up Arduinos and looking into getting started with digital electronics for a while and now finally brought an Uno along with a 16×2 character LCD with RGB backlight. Wow. It’s like I’ve unlocked a whole new world of electronics, for years I’ve looked at digitally controlled devices like LCDs woundering how …
