What's a good level translator from 3.3V to 5V? Either single drivers or multiples.
I have occasions where I need to drive 5V hardware, and I'd also like to work more with ARMs, which, with a few exceptions, top out at 3.3V.  So what are some standard...

Has anybody used the ADC LSB to generate random bit sequences?

First time working with battery power, am I going down the right path?
I have to design an unusual device, with a small AVR (not yet selected) at its heart, that runs off 3 D or C cells.  When running the device will draw maybe 200 mA, but it...
