Wiring method for homebrew CPU
Altium too will take logic schematics in and output VHDL. I dunno to me it's very counter-intuitive to hand-wire a project of that size. If you need to test some things, a partial...

Crystal format
Probably because there is no point in stocking crystals in form factors nobody will buy. HC49 is the standard for through hole, and if you are doing surface mount boards both of...

PCB Design - is this a bad idea?
To make your own life easier and still have good thermal coupling between the chip and the board, do make the thermal pad, but put an oversized plated through via dead center, big...

16-bit timer frequency problem
Something that I have not seen discussed in this thread either is the efficiency issue. You will get much better efficiency running at 20KHz than running at 200KHz, which might or...

ATMega16 Project Question
I think your problem is R2. There should not be a pull down on D-, just a pull-up. Removing R2 should fix it unless there are problems elsewhere. Also the two series resistors on...

Does it not also force you to publish your own code open source under the same license if you do use some LGPL-licensed code? EDIT: Ah nevermind after verification this is the...

Is there no licensing issue with the Arduino firmware? I certainly would not go and market a product using a BASIC stamp for example, just in fear that the stamp manufacturer...

Products like the Arduino really do not have any real-life application, except from supplying you with a decent platform to learn the basics. It abstracts all the basics until you...

AVR design with Altium Designer?
All the software design tools and simulators included are for FPGA. They support a wide range of products from Xylinx, Altera, etc... There is nothing for AVR in there. Although...

best wireless method for this application?
If you live anywhere close to where I live there is not even a question as to the why. When your car is parked on the street and its -30C at 6AM, you NEED a remote starter if you...
