Re: Using AVR studio with an arduino sketch.

I've been using AVR studio 5 (beta 1 and 2) with great success. It has crashed on me once or twice, but that could just be my laptop, since I'm using a 6 year old laptop that hasn't been formated in 4 years. Anyways, I did write a tutorial on how to use AVR studios with the Arduino. Hope this helps:...

Re: Help converting C to arduino?

If you are using one of the old Arduinos that use an ATmega8 you could use another IDE such as AVR studio and upload the code using an AVR uploader program, I have a tutorial on the subject on my site https://sites.google.com/site/qeewiki/books/avr-guide/getting-started-with-avr-software . If your A...

Re: MAX7456 On Screen Display Module and Arduino

If you look though the comments KiwiJohn posted a demo on his site http://www.john.geek.nz/2011/01/adding-custom-characters-to-the-max7456-video-overlay-generator/ I followed this and got it to work just fine. I also wrote a program to generate the code for making characters for the chip https://sit...

Re: Bringing History to life (Finished Project)

Thank you In order to get the camera to capture I had to shine an extra light source, on the display, in real life the LED's cause a really nice lighting effect on the edge of the fog, and cause shadows of the ships to be cast on the glass that we used as the water. It really is a great use of space...

Re: keypad interfacing

Hi victorf Can you post the links to the datasheet for the hardware? It's hard to help you if i don't know what your working with. If you keypad works the same way as http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8653 I would suggest you set up the Columns as inputs (with pullup) and the rows as outputs. Keep th...

Re: C bitwise operations

The short answer: ~(1 << 2) = ~00000100 = 11111011 but ( 0 << 2) will create 00000000 if you AND (&) by a 0 you will get a 0, so (0<<bit) will set the register to all 0's. I have some tutorials about the subject on my site that shows the math in details. https://sites.google.com/site/qeewiki/books/a...
