SAMD21 Mini Modules

Posted by ralphjy Top Member Nov 28, 2020
I recently came across same small footprint SAMD21 boards that I've found to be very useful for tinkering.   I've used the SAMD21 processors with a number of Arduino boards (Nano 33 IoT, MKR WAN 1300, MKR WiFi 1010) and I've been happy with their capability.  Quite a step up from the AVR parts.  What impressed me with these new boards is their small size and low cost.  Almost as cheap as buying the SAMD21 chip by itself.  I've been wanting a small low cost board tha ...
EnviroDNA has created a probe that could determine if the Tasmanian Tiger still exists in the wild. (Image Credit: Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office, PH30-1-9210)   Nothing more fun in science than advances in Cryptozoology. EnviroDNA, an Australian-based company that specializes in environment DNA (eDNA) research, has created a technique that could detect the presence of the famed Tasmanian Tiger. The company’s research involves cultivating traces of an animal’s DNA that w ...

I'm messing about with a couple of old IC voltage regulator parts from a box of spare bits. Nothing very directed, just what takes my interest. This blog was inspired by Andrew posting this question Instrument Control Board - Prototyping the Power section   A regulator, of course, is a simple control system. In the case of these parts, the output voltage gets compared to an internal reference voltage [giving an error term] and a pass element then adjusts the current, with overall neg ...
