My Peruvian mate martinvalencia and I purchased a set of 25LC256 SPI serial EEPROM chips. Our plan was to get them working with the Texas Instruments Hercules LaunchPad MK II. That was back in January. And then we stalled. Martin has restarted the exercise and I'm going to play along.   This blog is our path from Zero to Hero. This time I'm running my first trial on the LaunchPad. I get a reply but timing isn't ok yet. Feel free to jump all over us while we're doing things the wrong w ...
When you look at this pre-1970 photo of @me, you can see that I'm offspring of a maker family   The late 60's were not really golden years (first house with warm water, bath, shower, flushing toilet in 1984), so a happy childhood depended on the maker spirit of the family.   All clothes except shoes made by mom. Wool recovered from discarded pull-overs Toy made by dad. From throwaway wheelbarrow and bicycle parts, plus some scrap wood.   Thanks Mom and Dad.   inspired ...

I'm having a tough time with Arduino. Probably like a number of people these days.   A: There's this sentiment of disgust with how SRL acts as a business partner. But the adult me knows what business is like sometimes. They're all adult. Both LLC and SRL are real businesses operating in the business biosphere. B: On the other side there's LLC. They have my community and open source support. But they're posting communiques that want to tap into that sympathy. They play the hurt partner. Ev ...

I'm a BLE beginner. Never developed anything for bluetooth®, let alone the low energy variant. I received a Bluetooth Low Energy Pioneer Kit ( cy8ckit-042-BLE ) a few weeks ago.   I'm testing the CapSense proximity sensor and the BLE payload.   related posts: First Steps with the Cypress BLE Pioneer KIT - Unboxing and BLE Sniffing     CapSense?  The Cypress PSoC and PRoC have fabric on them that's specialized in capacitive sensing. This module delivers the  f ...
