When do you think that interrupts become very important
I've done similar things, when the MCU must do many things on a regular basis, including several possible paths through the code, and EVERYTHING (everything useful, anyhow) is in...

When do you think that interrupts become very important
If it is important that your code flow smoothly forwards with consistent execution time, don't use interrupts (or turn them off).  If it is important that at some point your...

Trouble Writing to Parallel SRAM
The ceramic caps will do, and the new layout is MUCH cleaner than the old one.  I like that you left one electrolytic in there - but I'd have left it in the other corner,...

Trouble Writing to Parallel SRAM
It may have been misinterpreted that lots of little electrolytics (22uF or so) are better than a few big ones.  And that's true, to some extent (they are better, for several...

Trouble Writing to Parallel SRAM
Technically, wasn't me, that was Jim (ki0bk), but yes, the idea is firm.    Lots of little 0.1uF caps right around the chips, up close and personal (on big AVRs, I've...

copy a port into a variabele
Yeah, that code was all screwed up.  Should have been OR not AND.  Whatever I was smoking when I wrote that I should go get some more...  S.

I'm with AbDoO_ on this one.   The reason why he (she?) can't receive them all simultaneously is because he can't fire them all simultaneously, because each sensor will...
