I found this gem yesterday in a school cafeteria: meraki [may-rah-kee] (adjective) This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be. Meraki is often used to describe cooking or preparing a […]

I finally enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame when an article called “Arduino Gets a Command Line Interface” by Bryan Cockfield was published on Hackaday on 10 Nov 2018. I am extremely grateful for all of the kind words, comments, stars and GitHub repository forks that it generated. This open source project has been a […]
After a cold dark winter sunny spring has arrived (in the southern hemisphere). This is a major new release with a move from SourceForge to GitHub. Some highlights: Complete redesign of peripheral driver APIs (GPIO, UART, SPI & I2C) Complete overhaul of Doxygen documentation with section numbering added Use of standard types (e.g. uint8_t, int16_t, […]
The design files are archived here for posterity. Enjoy!
Yep, that’s me, proud runner up in the Atmel Design Logic 2001 contest! It was a long, long time ago and the world was much, much smaller. Here is the link to the PALM III PDA winning entry. Circuit Cellar issue 137 December 2001, page 36: To put it in context, here are all three […]
My 12 year old son needed to manually log temperature for 12 hours as part of a school science assignment. I saw this as a great opportunity to demonstrate my incredible engineering skills assist him as a responsible and caring parent. Yes I know, with an Arduino the job would probably be finished in 5 […]
For a while now I’ve had a mental itch that needed to be scratched and finally found some time to do something about it. I had a function called rtc_date_time_to_sec_since_y2k() to convert date&time to seconds since Y2K, but I did not have one in the reverse direction… until now 🙂 Here is the best solution […]
Creating a good programming & test jig can be a daunting task if you’ve never attempted it before. Here is an example to demonstrate that it’s not that hard if you have a good plan. I recently had to create a programming jig for an ATmega328PB based board. 1mm diameter test pads were placed on […]
We’ve moved to a new spot on the World Wide Web: https://piconomix.com Piconomix FW Library 0.6.1 changes: More updates and improvements on RTC module (alarm mask; seconds since Y2K; eliminated atomic access requirement) Simplified the return value of some functions in log_fs module Updated links to new domain
Major changes: Major rewrite of log_fs module to fix critical flaws, alignment issues and improve API and documentation. Updated and improved dbg module Updated and improved CLI module Removed relative paths from #includes. Now paths can be set (and changed) in Makefiles. Upgraded to Doxygen 1.8.13 Enjoy!
