How to: power consumption of intermittent, spikey projects
Am I reading this  correctly, you have a 10 mSec duration ISR running every 5 Seconds?   I sometimes have an LED that I flash for 10mS every 5 seconds.   To...

Yes, I have a digital scope. I have used it before But it's a dynamic range problem again. Also, my digital scope won't let me sample at a fast enough speed for several hours....

How to: power consumption of intermittent, spikey projects
I have always used the same approach, i.e. measure the sleep current, measure the transmit current, do a bit of arithmetic. This one's a bit busier, though. There's an interrupt...

Resurrecting an old thread here, but it's a problem I have recently encountered again with a LoraWan node that idles at tens of uA, but peaks at around 100mA. The Dave Jones...

acc dec stepper, why it is so difficult ?
I used to write code for fruit machines/slot machines. Amongst other things. Getting the reels to start and stop in a desirable fashion was very, very tricky. Probably because the...

Implementing a 32-bit input capture timer
I am probably barking up the wrong tree. The thing I had problems with was a slightly different scenario, whereby I was using the external clock input to a timer to count pulses...
