Calibration of internal oscillator
I once had to adjust the calibration on a mega8 because it was off enough to inhibit UART comms at 19200 baud. It happened only once. I can't remember now, but think I just wrote...

SPI Losing Random Bytes
In the future try containing one problem in one thread instead of adding new threads. How is this one different from ?

'C' source code optimization techniques for atmega
If it's so bad that you don't have enough flash with -Os on, compiler optimizations may not be very useful. I would then try to identify pieces of your program that could be...

'C' source code optimization techniques for atmega
I would say that it's not worth it. The next minor version update of the compiler will have all your hand-made optimizations turned upside down.

best way to communicate between AVR's with SPI
You seem to be doing a lot of work in the interrupt handler. I would start by cleaning this up. You should not call parse_message() from within the interrupt vector. Instead, set...

Driving Nixie tube direct from Mega 8???
180V is the voltage on the anode, low-side voltage really depends on the low side and can be very low. A nixie passes around 2 to 10mA of current and AVR can easily sink that to...

DC-DC 12V-1kV
@hugoboss: because I don't like dealing with stuff in the wall, I prefer it when it's dealt with by certified professionals in the area.

DC-DC 12V-1kV
In a boost converter straight to 1000, shouldn't the Vds of transistor also be >1000? I don't know, sounds weird to me.

[solved] dying mega8, no reset or wdt
@Lee: you are absolutely right, shame on me. I guess I was lucky to use that pin as output in previous projects and this is how I never noticed this before.

DC-DC 12V-1kV
@hugoboss: because I want to use store-bought 12V (or 9V, or something) wallwart. @dak664: lol @AgwanII: good to know that those appnotes are scalable and thanks for the...

[solved] dying mega8, no reset or wdt
Quote:If some pins are unused, it is recommended to ensure that these pins have a defined level. Even though most of the digital inputs are disabled in the deep sleep modes as...
