Atmega8 sleep modes
I understood that the MAX232 also draws around 8mA. It could (should?) be replaced with a MAX3222? Also, I think that using the ULN2803 also adds to the the drawn current for each...

Atmega8 sleep modes
Hi Clawson, It's a 9V battery, I'll give a picture with the board and battery: Regarding the port, I read the datasheet and I know that everything is the same (and will port...

Atmega8 sleep modes
I saw that the idle mode reduces power consumption from 3.6mA to 1.0mA. As it stops only CPU and I assume that I can wake it up with the same timer interrupt used to get the ADC...

Atmega8 sleep modes
clawson: thanks, I'll surely keep that in mind for future work! But I still want to find out the best solution for the ATMega8 :) (too involved with it right now)

[TUT] [HARD] Gyros and Accelerometers: The Basics
I am planning to use an accelerometer to determine whether a fabrication machine is working or not. I'll probably be interested in 3 states - motor off, motor on, tool cuting the...

SRAM in ATmega128
Just a thought. I am wondering why noone noticed that 100.000 / 300 = 333.(3) days - almost a year! Not only 33 days.
