Low power too, all that is powered from a single PC power supply

Add Wi-Fi to your #msp430  Launchpad with the Wi-Fi CC3000 BoosterPack (~$40)
Texas Instrument launched SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 in Q1 2012 in order to bring WiFi connectivity to any device including 8-bit or 16-bit MCU, as CC3300 internally handled all networking tasks, and exchange data with the MCU via an SPI interface. This Wi-Fi processor allows to use Wi-Fi for data ...

And here is something completely different -- let me introduce you to my own personal farm of rendering monkeys. MonkeyFarm, distributed parallel rendering of Blender animations over SSH. And it's all contained in a single PHP file of just about 20KB. Source will be available as soon as it's been tidied up.

The source code for the pcd8544 driver used in Nokia 3310 displays for the msp430 is just about done. Working on a blog post about the setup and inner workings which will be available soon.

For now, you can dive into the source at https://github.com/noccy80/mspdev/tree/master/projects/lcdtest-3310

And here is the same project in #gtkwave with a few more bugs ironed out.

After a bit of fiddling, I've managed to convert the log output from simulation and #mspdebug 's iotracer into VCD format, allowing it to be read by #gtkwave and others. Not very user friendly yet, but will eventually be part of #mspdev. What do you think about this concept? To clarify; the code isn't run on a msp430 but rather in the builtin simulator of mspdebug.

It's here at last, the blog post about the PCD8544 driver for the Msp430. Full source code and a working sample can be found at GitHub (follow the link in the post).

(The Olimex LCD3310 module can be found at http://microcontrollershop.com/product_info.php?products_id=4662 for $10)

While browsing through the Google Play store, I struck gold. This is the full version of Lessons In Electric Circuits as available in PDF format from http://openbookproject.net/electricCircuits/ in pocket format for your Android device.

The download is 20MB and well worth it.

Very clever resistor helper by Adafruit. Grab a pair of scissors (or a hobby knife) and make one yourself!
 
Please share! HOW TO - Make a Resistor Helper – Papercraft Resistor Calculator!

Papercrafts at Adafruit! We’re excited to share this Resistor Helper you can download and make yourself. It’s the newest tool in our Circuit Playground family (http://adafruit.com/circuitplayground) – when you can’t get to your iPhone or iPad, use paper! One side helps you read 4-band types and the other side takes care of 5-band types. The Resistor Helper is on Thingiverse as a PDF (with Illustrator editability preserved http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22070). Designed by Adafruit with Matthew Borgatti (http://har.ms/).

Experiments with microcontrollers and electronics
Introduction
NoccyLabs is the social lab that covers everything relating to microcontrollers and electronics project. It consists of a blog, a wiki and a message board.

NoccyLabs aims to bring the people that tinkers with electronics together and promote the sharing of ideas and concepts and to stimulate the use of Open Source software as well as Open Hardware.
