ATmega328 Overclock (30MHz)

Hello everyone,

This is more fun oriented project than something useful (or not) since ATmega328 was not designed for clock frequency above 20MHz (see datasheet). So, 30MHz is push it far from the limit. :)

Besides, I…

Voltage Logger does it the right way

The folks over at Adafruit have been busy designing an LED matrix wristwatch for a while now. The circuit works great, but since this watch is powered by a coin cell battery, they’d really like to get the power consumption as low as possible. This means they needed a test rig to measure the consumption…

The MineCraftClock (get up before explodes)

The user Young_Maker's (from Reddit) made a clock radio with arduino but its plays tunes from game Minecraft. The Arduino controls a LCD display. A RTC (to accurate time) and an uMp3 board were used to play random music from the game. The soundtrack is a way to gently wake up in the morning. But if time runs out, the boom of an explosion is played to make sure you’re not late for work.

Get code for Arduino …

DIY 8x8x8 LED Cube

Building an LED cube has been a project that we have always wanted to do, but the opportunity just never presented itsself. However, recently we were able to get our hands on an 8x8x8 LED kit (that's 512 LEDs!) which provides all the parts (95% of them) and instructions for building your own LED cube. The instructions weren't the greatest, so we went ahead and documented the entire process of building an 8x8x8 LED Cube. Hopefully it…
