Hafta admit I'm aware of this but don't use it.  I use the   y = 0bxxxxxxxx ; hopefully with bits (described, not abbreviated!) in the comment line  *   format...

Trying to see clock signal on an oscilliscope
On 'scope probe grounding:  (Just to follow clawson's take on making the subject wander)   Yeah, weird sinusoids where you expect a square wave is typically lousy...

Crystal oscillator questions on the ATmega328P
I put 18pF on my crystals mostly because I have a big box of 18pF caps, but never had a problem with them.  I'm also not doing super-duper-high-precision timing work. ...

Signal Generator on Steroids
How important is that "30V" spec?  I'd suggest a Nat Semi LM12 power op-amp, in a TO-3 (4-pin) can.  They're good to +/-25V  on +/- 30V rails to 10A.   And it...

Techniques for algorithmic obfuscation in 8-bit AVR micros?
What the OP has, as did all those making tapes, is a very fundamental problem.  It's the same problem you see in pretty much every DRM scheme, too.   The problem is that...
