Kyle Stewart built another cool Dev Board for the ATmega168/8 (same microcontroller used in arduino).
The news thing about this board, is that it have a “vertical approach”, leaving more space on the breadboard for other components, a excellent idea!
Works with ATmega168 (and probably others)
5V and 3V regulators can supply power to breadboard
Plugs vertically into breadboard taking minimal space
1-wire debug can be used
Simple to build, no surface mount components
On kyle’s website you will find the schematic, eagle files and more.
I’ve built my HTPC like one year ago, don’t know why I have never written about it on this website. Well, for today, I will be presenting the place I spend many hours of my life, my Home Theater PC, my Media/File/Gaming/BackUp Server. The idea came many years ago, but without $, it was not possible. Fist my main computer was near the tv, so I used to connect to my old tv using a S-Video Cable and a P2 to a RCA Cable, and as a Tube Tv, the quality wasn’t that good, and I couldn’t almost read any text on the screen, just big texts like subtitles.
Washington: Scientists are working to create a ultra-dense storage systems for computers and electronics. If the system works, it would enable storage of density of more than 100,000 terabits per cubic centimetre i.e. a device the size of an iPod nano could hold enough MP3 music to play for 300,000 years without repeating a song or enough DVD quality video to play movies for 10,000 years without repetition.
I had a broken scanner around here, so I decided to do something with it. I decided to install the lamp inside my computer. And its worked!!! So I’ll try to explain what I did to make it work. I believe it’s different for different scanners, but you can try to figure out for your! ðŸ˜‰
