Simple EEPROM Programmer … revisited

Some time ago, I wrote about my DIY EEPROM programmer driven by an Arduino Mega. It’s a very simple, low-tech project … but has attracted a consistently-high number of visitors to the site and is something I use several times a week.

Using the Si7006 to get temperature and humidity readings

I made a PCB with the Si7006 on it. This post is my bumblings encountered as I successfully got temperature and humidity readings from a Si7006 using the PCB I designed. In summary, the Si7006 is easy to work with. It is relatively easy to solder and very easy to access via I2C […]

E-Paper Breakout Board for Teensy

Breakout board designed in KiCad to connect Pervasive Displays 2.15″ E-Paper (E2215CS062) to Teensy 3.2 or Teensy LC. Based Teensy E-Paper Shield by Jarek Lupinski in EAGLE.

My goal is to create a name badge I can wear at conferences and Maker Faires. This was first step to verify the KiCad schematic and KiCad footprints work. I will post more information as the badge project progresses.

Biomed Shield for Arduino 101

A sweet Arduino shield with a ton of cool sensors for physiological parameters such as heart rate and breathing rate

The features include:

  • Heart Rate Monitoring with the MAX30101
  • Pulse Oximeter with the MAX30101
  • Electrocardiogram, Electromyogram, and Electrooculogram with our Super Simple EXG Circuit
  • Bioimpedance with the AD5934
  • Body Temperature with the MLX90614
  • Ambient Light with a CdS Photocell
  • Ambient Temperature with a Thermistor

Crazy Circuits is a non-soldering electronic learning platform that allows people to create circuits from almost any material they can imagine. Crazy Circuits are designed to pop onto LEGO™ bricks, enabling your LEGO™ creations to shine, move, and make noise. Use Crazy Circuits to construct paper crafts with conductive tape, use conductive thread for sewing, and create art with conductive inks and paints. You can even program sketches with Arduino compatible Crazy Circuits boards. No matter what you want to build, Crazy Circuits brings it all together.

Rotary Encoder Breakout with Pull-up Resistors

rotary1.jpg

This breakout board designed in KiCad makes it easy to put a rotary encoder and pull-up resistors on a breadboard.  (Thanks to Enrico for the idea to add pull-up resistors).  The footprints on the back are meant for 1206 SMD resistors.  I choose 1K Ohm resistors, marked 102, when I assembled this board.

Additional photos are available in the GitHub repo’s images directory and in a Google Photos gallery.

Here is the OSH Park shared project for the board:

I used this KiCad symbol and footprint by Mike Cousins for a Sparkfun rotary encoder:

I’ve verified that these rotary encoders fit:

I wrote this Arduino sketch to run on the Teensy 3.2.  The brightness of one LED is controlled by the rotary encoder knob.  The other LED is turns on when the rotary encoder knob is pressed down:

Vertically Mounted Arduino-Compatible Board

Clovis Fritzen designed this Arduino-compatible, vertically-mountable board that exclusively uses through-hole components:

Vertically mounted Arduino for Breadboard

I personally love the concept of electronic boards connected in “slots” (vertically attached to a horizontal board), like most industrial-grade PLC’s or even our desktop’s expansion cards (video, sound memory): it saves a lot of space and adds more functions to the system, all at once!

 

The PCB is for sale on Tindie:

Vertically mountable Arduino – PCB only

This is an Arduno-Nano compatible controller that can be vertically mounted to bredboards and boards
