Exploring the Arduino Sketch Build Process

Ever wonder how an .ino file from the Arduino IDE finds its way to an Arduino microcontroller’s flash memory? Lend me a few minutes and we’ll learn them together. Overview The reason why Arduino programming[…]

Bring Solar Power Into Your Sensor Project

Quite often, we want to place our sensors at locations where we have no access to a power outlet. The obvious solution is to add some solar panels and batteries to your project to make it run 24h / 7 days a week without the need to recharge it.

Wired Communication Protocols: I2C

So far we’ve talked about wireless technologies and UART communications. In this tutorial, we will talk about Inter-Integrated Circuits or I2C. I2C I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuits) is a serial communication protocol that connects multiple slaves to[…]
