Fast AC voltage fault detector
In this particular case, I think the OP was using LEDs as an example of an output.  They may indeed have something much faster to hook up in mind.  S.

Fast AC voltage fault detector
If you're only detecting peak voltages, you have a frequency problem.  Given an AC line frequency of 50Hz then the peaks will only come along every 20ms - much longer than...

Quadrature encoder is moved while power off

Connecting some pins together (mega88)
PS - Yes, there are sometimes applications for self-destructing chips.  e.g. when your spy plane crash-lands at a Chinese airport.  Most of these applications involve...

Connecting some pins together (mega88)
A few more suggestions:   1) Most board houses charge by the square inch.  Even one-time setup charges are going away.  If the board really is that small, it'll be...

Recovering "External 16MHz"-fused mega2560
As an aside, I got burned by this once.  Apparently even Atmel (now Microchip) isn't consistent about the XTAL pins.   gchapman wrote:XTAL2 then XTAL1, if need be, per a...

Connecting some pins together (mega88)
Should be okay as far as I can see, but as you understand this is not a recommended practice.  If you get your program wrong, you will blow your chip.  So don't do that...

Ring Buffer vs Array Buffer
So set the 'command rec'd' flag on the first S, and ignore the rest.  Won't work if the 'S' is in italic, though...    S.   Edited to add: Unless it's only...
