ARM7 poised to replace 8 bit µC in coming years?
Quote:Virtually all of my work goes underwater and has to run forever (or nearly so) on batteries, This is interesting. What sort of projects are these?? I made an atmega168 board...

ARM7 poised to replace 8 bit µC in coming years?
There is an interesting ARM dev board at Mikroelektronika. 150$ I never saw so many buttons and LEDs! I love the looks of it :)

[Slightly OT] Way to go, Colin!
It's a great article! Colin, you are famous... But no reference to AVRFreaks.net The best AVR resource there is :)

Quote:Gwen, yes, the picture looks remarkably like the box I have on my desk. These are dirt cheap and power packed - the problem is you've gotta use Linux! This can be a mixed...

24V as power
Maybe 2 or 3 of the 7805's could be used? Can you parallel these things? I run some AVR projects using 7805's hooked to 19v solar panels...but the current draw is only like 200ma...

A 7805 and a big heatsink will work fine :) Not super efficient but super cheap. The 7805 is about .35 And just scrounge a heatsink out of some old junked device. In fact...many...

I just wish there were some cheap 40-pin arm chips so you could experiment without having to solder sm stuff.

I just ordered some LPC2119 arm stamps and a little dev board. The stuff was cheap....but I also ordered Atmega128 stamps and dev board :) Will comment more on the arm after I try...

Newbie: Help me pick a project, T.I.A.
The sound recorder does sound the hardest.:) An extremely easy to build project for an AVR is an electronic lock or coded switch system. You use one input port connected to a...

Buttload + the 20$ butterfly is a marvel! Dean is a genius and we will see great things from him I am sure :) I wish I was half as good at this stuff as Dean. (I might be half as...
