An Arduino Compatible Using CP2102

Standard Arduino boards use FTDI’s FT232RL to interface with computer’s USB port. Since FT232R is just a USB to UART converter, it is possible to build an Arduino compatible USB interface using other USB to UART chips. Continue reading ‘An Arduino Compatible Using CP2102’ »

Clock Synchronization Via I2C (TWI)

When I was doing the clock/stop watch project last month, I mentioned that I intended to add I2C (TWI) communication functionality so that I could get time from this clock and use it as timer signal to control other electronics. Continue reading ‘Clock Synchronization Via I2C (TWI)’ »
