I'm collecting photos of AVR based projects to post in my embeddedsystems.US photo gallery. If you would like your photo(s) published, please send them to me at the email address listed in my AVRFreaks profile. Please include a title and description for each photo. You may include a link to your web site in the description. The maximum photo size is 1024x768. If you have more than a couple of photos, I'll create a sub-album just for you.

Also, my web site is still in beta stage. However, if you register, you can then create links in my links section and news articles in the User News section. All submissions are reviewed before publishing.

==============================================================================================
EDIT: I let the embeddedsystems.us domain and site expire. Most of the gallery photos came directly from the photos posted to this thread so read on and enjoy!

No interesting pictures, but I love your site. Specifically, http://embeddedsystems.us/gallery/butterfly/IMG_7407_Large is by far the greatest AVR project i've seen in a long time - it has neatness but also the "wow, cool!" factor thrown in. I spy with my little eye a LCD, QWheel, desecrated Butterfly and a CF card...

And awww, shucks, you put a link to ButtLoad in your links. Thanks!

PS: In that photo, what's the little SM chip soldered to the seperate tiny board in the bottom-right?

Thanks, Dean. Of cousre I put a link to BUTTLOAD. I'm ready to hand off a couple of BUTTLOADs to my board assembly houser for doing the initial programming of my boot loader on my main board, user-interface board and the various sensor boards. Your BUTTLOAD is one serious project. Well done!

BTW, that's a Secure Digital (SD) Card not a CF card.

Hey! I just found a PDF button next to the email button by the news story title. I clicked it an it created a PDF of the article on my PC. Very cool. I'm liking this Mambo CMS.

I'm an idiot, it is indeed a SD card. Sadly, I was using a SD card only moments before I posted that in order to post the pic of my ButtLoad setup. Doh! I promise I know what they look like! :D.

So what is that little SM chip in the photo? Or is it a company secret? :)

It is a giant-magneto-resistive sensor. A bridge configuration that changes resistance when in a changing magnetic field.

Are you sending me that picture of your BUTTLOAD setup?

Not much to see, since it's basically just a Butterfly connected to a STK500. Despite looking rather odd, it worked! As I said in the ButtLoad thread, today was the first time i've ever tried ButtLoad since the first bungled attempt during the Alpha stages which killed my original Butterfly.

I have one, here's my DAC. It's so hot it's all wet with flux. TQFP32 is ATmega8L, big SOIC is CS8416, TSSOP28 is AD1955. Small SOIC is ADM3202, which is by the way an excellent, cheaper, replacement to MAX232 series.

As for the Dark Boxes, I already explained them not once. The latest post about them is here:

I have a lot of AVR projects, but most are for customers and cannot be shown, but here's some current private projects :

The yampp-8 and yamppPod, two new (surprise surprise) MP3 players.

The yampp-9 is a mega128 based player with 10/100Mbit Ethernet, WLAN 802.11b, ATA interface, IR, Serial ports, plus an expansion connector.




The yamppPod is a supersmall handheld player with a Nokia Color LCD, a slide/push button and T-Flash memory card. Controlled by a mega128 in MLF (tricky bugger to solder).
Also included a picture of a testmill of the box for it. The final box will be about 1/5th longer than the one shown.

It works, but you need to have the pics on a server somewhere. If you have them on your PC, you need to use the attachment method.

You may now register on embeddedsystems.us and then post your own news article or project article. You may link to your own site or other sites. You may include images in your articles. Once you register, I'll receive an email. I'll then bump up your permissions to allow you to post an article. Once your post is complete, I'll receive another email. I'll then preview your article and enable the post.

This site is for embedded systems folks. Please use it and enjoy it. At some point, I'll add a section with articles and links to folks that are available and willing to do embedded systems design work for others.

Here are some of My AVR projects.

The rats nest is the USB piano roll scanner. This was taken today. Most of the USB device is hidden under the ICE header. The board with the green plug in the center is the actual device under test. The rest is support, power conditioning, motor and backlight control.

The mechanics for the piano roll scanner. This is what the rats nest goes into.

Other projects are
Compact flash based MIDI file player.
The simple glass LCD project I put into the academy
An early version of the floppy disk MIDI file player.
Inside the floppy disk MIDI file player.

Hi jporter :)

Those are really cool looking pix!
That piano roll player idea is just sooo cool!
When you finish it please post an avi somewhere so we can see it
and hear it in action. :)

Users can now register and create their own albums.

Caveat: You must use your AVRFreaks username for your embeddedsystems.US Gallery username when you register. Then, PM me at AVRFreaks and ask for Album Creation permission. I'll PM you back after I set your permissions. I'm limiting the creation of albums to AVRFreaks users only! Please keep it clean. I reserve the right to remove albums that are offensive. Photos may not be larger than 1024x768.

Thanks Zoom, its a private project, but guys did not mind sharing the picture. Besides 3 PWM channels its got a very high resolution PT100 temperature sensor input (in a Kelvin config) for resolution of 0.02C, it manages 3 closed loop controller channels.

Its always a pleasure to work on project like these with the Mega AVR´s.

Any chance you could reduce these to say 800x600 or less?
These are crazy large.

Hi Alexander!

Nice looking boards. I'll get these up in the gallery in a few minutes.

Would you please go back to your post with the crazy large photos and edit your post. When you are in edit mode, you can delete attachments. Delete the crazy large attachments then submit your edited post.

I have a few photos on my website but they seem lame compared to the ones here! :(
The site is not fully updated as it still shows some HC05, HC11 and Pic based product :cry: But the DXIO-3 to DXIO-6 modules are AVR based. The CONT2 (HC11) has the equivalent CONT3 (M64 based, just converting the firmware now), the MTERM2 (HC05) has a few functional equivalent modules in the MTRM3 series ( M8 ) and the LED displays are M8 based and no longer Pic based (some hair strands are returning :wink: ).

Not enough days in a year..... :lol:

Gee sweet projects there! But almost more impressive is that you guys/gals can set aside time to make websites an discripe your projects. I work hard just trying to keep up with the constant flow of ideas (partly from looking at your sites ;) ).
Well here's a couple of my current projects.

Free, fast, just great image viewer for windoze. Supports brazillian of image formats, too. Can do basic processing, conversion, resampling, cropping, merging.. Has batch conversion mode too. My best recommendations.

Like a Zener but much more hefty, I think it is a trade name and yes it is a transient suppressing device. You put one before your
regulator to kill any nasty spikes from the power supply.

A+, Very nice Dean. I actually like to use longer wires as shown n the Butterfly Top Board thing. Laying the wires down flat covers up much needed socket strip holes and takes so long.

Now, for more fun, design a binary clock with 3 rows of LEDs for hours, minutes, and seconds using tri-color LEDs so you can see all of the columns for reading at night. Extra credit, add an alarm setting as well.

I haven't built one of these with the AVR yet, but I built 5 different designs with the PIC.

LED Color organ link with some cool photos.

Have fun!
