They are very inexpensive and easy to find. They are also very powerful and many are capable of speeds up to 64 MIPS using the internal oscillator block, about 16 times faster than most comparable AVR micr...

You got to use whatever you could manage to buy from the mail-order chip dealer, and that narrowed down the choice to a small number of chips. But times have changed. Digikey lists over 16...

At that time I was looking for a low-res camera for simple robotics image processing, and all I had experience with was PIC (12, 16, and 18) microcontrollers. So I didn't really get to work on the images real time (not enough RAM or spe...

I was 8 when my father bought me a C=64 28 years ago, and I still remember how thrilled I was to play with it (I'm still a gamer and a hardware hacker thanks to it), and the main thing for me in most games was the epic music. So after many years...

How Servos are Different from Regular Motors In a regular DC motor, the amount of torque the motor exerts on the shaft is proportional to the amount of current fl...

Oh, how times have changed. And as usual, I'm still 7* years behind those changed times. My latest project is a remake of ...
