A neat little project on beer fermentation control along with new gyros, upgraded LilyPad, a motor driver shield for Arduino, and some new development boards.
It’s Friday, the building is close to being empty, and beer and thermodynamics are on my mind. Wanna know why?
This is a fun project
involving a thermoelectric
fermentation chiller for beer wort using SparkFun parts and BatchPCB
. Thermodynamics, electronics, and beer, what a great combination. Awesome work Adam!
. Take a guess. This is a motor shield for an Arduino USB
or Arduino Pro
that will drive two DC motors
, 2 amps per channel.
The ARMmite Pro
is a ARM based board with a Arduino Pro
footprint. Packs a much bigger punch than the AVR Arduinos. 32 bits of processing power running at 60MHz turns this board into a low cost single board computer.
A new Olimex development board. The AT90USB162
is the easiest way to add USB functionality to your next project. Atmel provides free open source HID (mouse, keyboard) and CDC (USB-to-RS232)
This is one powerful motor control board. The Dual Serial Motor Controller
allows for variable speed and direction control of two large brushed DC motors using a simple serial interface. 13A continuous and 30A peak output per channel!
Here is a cable
we designed for the ButtonPad Controller Board
, but can be used with any4-pin JST connector.
The new ADXRS 6 series gyros
are now available. Comes in three flavors: 50
, and 300
degrees per second.
The LilyPad Main Board
now come with an ATMega328. It’s like the ATmega168, but with double the flash space (32K), double the SRAM (2K), and double the EEPROM (1K).
