Ghetto programmer and 16Mhz

First off, Hello everyone. I built the ghetto parallel port programmer, adjusting the pinouts to work with a attiny26 and it works flawlessly.Kudos to the author.My problem is that when I drop in an external crystal rated at 16Mhz I avrdude quits because of a faulty signature; I assume this means the timings are off.At firs I thought I had misconfigured the fuses, but ,thankfully, when I dropped an 8Mhz crystal in it worked again. I know this uC can be clocked this high, so what's the problem? thanks

What hardware can I use to program an AVR?

I'm just getting into microcontrollers and I'm getting an atmega328 to practice with, and probably make an arduino out of. I'm a bit confused about what I need to turn the usb from computer into something it will understand. I was confused about if I need an ftdi cable, but I think they are only used if you are using a bootloader? So I think I need a usb to ttl converter and I've found a couple cheap ones on ebay and am wondering if they will work. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-USB-TTL-Converter-Module-buildin-in-CP2102-/180824855916?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash;=item2a1a00556c#ht_2026wt_958 This one I'm pretty sure will work but I think I would need to convert it to six pins for the atmega: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USBASP-USBISP-AVR-Programmer-ATMEL-ATMEGA8-ATMEGA128-ATMEGA168-New-/170787590104?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash;=item27c3bbcfd8#ht_2946wt_958 Sorry for such a beginner question I'm just getting started!

Securing programmable IC chips Answered

I've just started playing with Arduino boards and programming and I am curious about firmware or downloading a program to a chip upon completion so the project remains so I can keep it intact after I remove the Arduino interface. Can you buy inexpensive chips and download a program to the chip with all the instructions on it so I don't have to leave the Arduino board connected to it. I've heard there are inexpensive one time chips that you can download too and that's pretty much it. Once the program is in, its in and you can't reprogram it again so my questions are this 1) can this be done? 2) does anyone have an Instructable for a project that uses this, and finally, where can I get such programmable chips? Any assistance or advise is most appreciated.

Core Wars: The battle of the programmers.

Okay, brace yourself for a lengthy background story: In the 1960's and 70's, computers were much too expensive for a normal person to have one all to themselves. Before the invention of the Personal Computer (PC), computer systems were mainly employed in large universities, able to be used by students. However, there came a danger with all this: Back then, there was no such thing as protected memory, meaning that someone with minor hacking skills and some knowledge of assembly could easily wreak havoc on other people's data and programs. One such urban legend is that of a major business firm's main computer system, which a mischievous employee had installed his own assembly program called creeper, who's only purpose was to create copies of itself whenever it was run. This soon became a problem, as the creeper virus began eating up precious space in the memory and began corrupting other people's data and programs. After a while, another more brightly-hatted programmer created a program called reaper, which would make numerous copies of itself and destroy any creeper virii it could find and then self-destruct. Soon enough, things were back to normal. After hearing this story, a programmer named A.K. Dewdney got the idea for a game which he called "Core Wars". In this game, people would write computer programs called "warriors" in an assembly language called Redcode. Redcode had instructions not out of the ordinary of any assembly language. These programs were then run simultaneously in a simulated computer called MARS. The aim of the game was to make the opposing program crash by forcing it to execute an illegal command in the computer's shared memory. The surviving program was declared the winner. The absolute simplest warrior was called imp, and was written by Dewdney: MOV 0, 1 The MOV command moves copies a command from one place to another, in a position relative to the MOV command. Because of this, the imp would fill up the entire memory with MOV commands in a relatively short amount of time. Because the memory loops around (So, if the size of the memory is 8000 commands, then command 8001 would be executed as command 0) then it meant imp would always hit it's target eventually if it wasn't hit first. Another program which was written by Dewdney is called Dwarf: bomb      DAT 0,0 Dwarf     ADD #4,-1                 MOV bomb,@bomb                JMP Dwarf End Dwarf This is the first example of a "bomber" program. This program would drop DAT 0,0 (An illegal command) at every fourth slot in the memory in the hopes that the other program would accidentally execute it (cookie if you can figure out how it works). There are far other types of examples, like scanners, which try to scan the commands around it to see if they are illegal. Some programs can even repair themselves mid-battle. So, does anyone else still partake in this ancient game? I recently just got into it, writing my first warrior program a few days ago. Have no idea if it works, but it sounds pretty cool. It's based off of Dewdneys Dwarf but with a few modifications (I named it MindSplitter): bomb      SPL 1                 JMP -1                 DAT 0,0 Split        ADD #5,-1                 MOV bomb,@bomb                JMP Split End Split First off, this plants bombs at every fifth command instead of fourth, which I hope will help it spread out. Second, the bomb it uses is my personal invention that I call the Splitter bomb. In Redcode, the SPL command will jump execution to the specified command, while at the same time continue executing the commands after it. The idea is that the SPL will split to the jump command while the normal execution goes to the jump command, and both of them jump back to the SPL, therefore filling up all of the enemy programs processes. If the enemy program somehow manages to escape the loop, there is a deadly DAT after it. I haven't tried this out yet and I'm not sure how it would do in battle. If someone with a MARS emulator and a warrior of their own would like to put it to the test, I'd would absolutely love to hear how it turns out :).

Arduino as an ISP Programmer???? No luck so far :(

Hi, I've owned an Arduino Duemilanove for a while, and I love its functionality and all that it can do. I also like to program chips(PIC, and AVR) as it is pretty much an Arduino in super miniature form. But theres one problem, I dont own a working PIC or AVR Programmer! I looked around online and the only low-priced ones I could find(<$20USD) were Serial(I only have 1 serial port, but It's being used by my monitor, which I kind of need to see what I'm programming...). I have plenty of USB ports, but the USB programmers are over my budget. I would love to make one(I'm more of a DIY person) but I've heard from a few sources that the FT232RL and MAX232(UART<->RS232 converters)  wont work for the application of programming(but theres one on the Arduino?!?!?), so I'm out of luck there. But then I put 2 and 2 together: Why not just use my Arduino as an AVR programmer? So I went online hoping to find a shield I could buy for cheap, or at least a schematic. And I got nothing. The only thing I found close is how to program an Arduino with another Arduino, but I only want to use an Attiny13, or Attiny2313; Not the big Atmegaxxx. So now my question I present to you: How can I program an Attiny13/2313 with an Arduino, preferably(but not requiredly, anything really) with the ArduinoISP sketch included with the arduino IDE?

I Need a Game Design Team (Mobile Game Development)

Hey guys, I am looking for a game design team to help out with a project I am starting.  It will be a mobile game similar to Clash of Clans, but with many different gameplay changes.  I have a lot of the game planned out, but I don't want to have to learn all of the different skills it would take to make the game on my own.  I have some 3D modelling skills with blender, and will also do most of the gameplay design. People I Need: -Another 3D modeler to work with and help reduce the workload -A texturer -A programmer with the skill to put a mobile game together -An animator -An artist (for main map, interface, etc) -Possibly someone for sound; I can probably do that I would assume that the game will be created in Unity, but that mainly depends on the group's preferences.  If the programmer has the skill, he could just custom code the game, and it would definitely run better that way.  Anyways, whatever money is made from this project will be split equally between everyone except for the programmer; I know how much work that would take, he will probably get a little bit larger of the share. Reply with your email and I will send you the basic outline of the game. -Josh PS: Please, only native English speaking people; I've worked with non-natives, and I have found communication to be very tedious...

Calling All Programmers (Yes, ALL)

Every now and then in typing class, our teacher will give us a handful of letters, and we're given about 5 minutes to come up with as many words as we can from these letters. So today I thought... what if there was a program where you could input a string of letters, and it would spit out as many words as possible that can be made out of those letters. A quick Google search was less than fruitful. So, to the more techier of my fellow Iblians, how would you go about writing a program that could do this? I'm thinking something where you input a string of letters, and then it scans, say, an online dictionary, to find as many words as possible from the inputted letters. Sound doable?

Battery Powered Programmable LED Sign

Hi all! I am working on building a sign to hold up at a concert I'm going to in a couple months, and I really want it to stand out!  To preface: I am very technically inclined but know very little about powering LEDs (have only done basic diode and battery combos) and have zero programming experience, but am a quick study.  What I am looking for is a solution that can be mounted on a 20x30" corrugated plastic panel, and run via battery pack with enough juice to last a 4+ hour concert. I know that one can easily buy battery powered LED strips, which I'd mount in an array on the plastic, but I'd really like to ideally be able to control the lights colors and show different bits of text, possibly via an iOS app.  I know this might sound quite ambitious but as my dad always likes to say, go big or go home! Anyone have any ideas where I can get started? Thanks in advance :)

Programmers can you help me?

Programmer for an art project? I can give you an excellent opportunity to learn some things about insect detectors, and to challenge your creativity! I need a some help from a programmer/ technical person for my art project (immediately)- Short about the project: The Project is planned for the end exam exhibition at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, June/ July 2008, but might also be shown at later occasions. The work is an installation with video projections, machines and live insects. A box is located on the top of a pedestal. The box contains crane flies, which will be seen through a small window. The crane fly's movements are intercepted by sensors which translates the movements to commands for a machine. The walls in the room are covered by video projections. By means of wires, the machine can move around in the whole room. Technically what I need is: Through an actometer (insect movement detector) the electric impulses created by the movement of the insects, can be viewed in a software on a computer. What i need to do is to use the graph of movements in the software to send output commands to a machine (made by me, controlled by Remote controlls). I am not sure of how this can be done in the best way possible, but I have some suggestions which I can explain more precisely later on. I am looking for someone who have knowledge in terms of programming, and could be able to come up with a good solution, as well as maybe collaborating/ helping me out with my project. Please let me know if you are interested, know someone or know where I should go to meet the right people here in amsterdam. All answers are appreciated! Thank you in advance Andrea

Programmers can you help me?

I can give you an excellent opportunity to learn some things about insect detectors, and to challenge your creativity! I need a some help from a programmer/ technical person for my art project (immediately)- Short about the project: The Project is planned for the end exam exhibition at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, June/ July 2008, but might also be shown at later occasions. The work is an installation with video projections, machines and live insects. A box is located on the top of a pedestal. The box contains crane flies, which will be seen through a small window. The crane fly's movements are intercepted by sensors which translates the movements to commands for a machine. The walls in the room are covered by video projections. By means of wires, the machine can move around in the whole room. Technically what I need is: Through an actometer (insect movement detector) the electric impulses created by the movement of the insects, can be viewed in a software on a computer. What i need to do is to use the graph of movements in the software to send output commands to a machine (made by me, controlled by Remote controlls). I am not sure of how this can be done in the best way possible, but I have some suggestions which I can explain more precisely later on.

Where can I get a cheap AVR programmer

Hi, I'm working on a project and am wondering: Where can I get a cheap AVR programmer compatible with Atmega chips? Specifically the ATmega32U4. It does not need to have a socket for the chip, I'll be doing in circuit programming. Please help.
