ISP strangely flakey on ATtiny44, 84
I've made up some very simple boards that take a Tiny44 or 84. The first few, using 44s, programmed and worked just fine. The next 3, built with both 44s and 84s, fail to...

Is there a replacement for PROGMEM and its access functions?
I thought I read recently that there is a nicer way to declare and access flash-based data. Did I dream that, misunderstand, or is it true? Didn't find anything with some...

Example of an ASM function in a C project?
I want to call an ASM function from C, and I'm stuck at even getting the ASM file to ASM. I created the file via AS6 (call it foo.s) and .include-ed the proper .inc file and a...

Anybody hooked up an AVR to WS2812 RGB LEDs?
I just started looking at these guys and wrote some preliminary code yesterday (on paper, haven't gotten around to testing it). Anybody else playing with them? Here's the...

Which boot loader?
I've used bootloaders for other uC families, but not for AVR. Is there a protocol standard? If not, how does one get Atmel Studio to live with a given standard as executed by a...

Any idea where to look for 1x33 sockets?
I need something like these, but 1x33: http://www.ebay.com/itm/100pcs-G... I'd be happy to buy 100 to 1000 if I could find them at a non-insane price (i.e. <<$1). Any ideas...

Is there a standard ISP interface for ATtiny20?
I need a small AVR and the ATTiny20 seems to fit the bill (Normally I use ATMega48/88/..). However, unless I'm missing something, the '20 does not seem to use the standard ISP...

Some data on generating random numbers via ADC
I've been playing around with this idea this morning, and have a bit of data. The idea is simply to regard the LSB of an ADC conversion as a random value (1 or 0) and generate a...

How wide do you make your SMD IC pads?
I'm more software than hardware, so I'm looking for some advice here. One rule I found at some IC manufacturer was to add 0.1mm to the pin width if the pin spacing was > 0.5mm,...

What if the input voltage to a boost regulator is too high?
Suppose I have a small boost regulator to bump up 2 AA cells to 5V, and I want to extend the battery life by going to 3 AA cells (4.8V with fresh batteries). This is outside the...
