FTDI woes

This afternoon I was happily working away writing code and occasionally uploading it a few Moteinos. I was just getting used to the little “beep boop” noises Windows makes every time you plug/unplug a new USB device, when they stopped and my upload failed. Rather confused, I checked the available COM ports using the Arduino […]

Wireless Accelerometer

As part of my attempt to keep playing with bits of hardware, and procrastinate, while I write up my PhD I recently decided to make a wireless accelerometer. I’m not quite sure what gave me the idea, other than the fact I had an ADXL345 accelerometer module sat on my desk, unused. Instead of my […]

Moteino is based around an Atmel 328p, running at 16MHz, […]
