I failed to mention the winner of the caption contest this morning - apologies all around! But here you have it - the winner of last week's SparkFun Caption contest.
Thank you, Mulvane, for your winning contribution - we'll get in touch to get you your prize (a SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino). Also, thanks to everyone who participated. We'll do another contest in the near future. Now on to the post...
Fall is officially here and with the new month comes a new "According to Pete." If you're new to the series, it works like this - on the first Monday of the month, our Director of Engineering Pete Dokter chooses one embedded electronics topic and breaks it down to easily digestible bits of goodness. In the past, Pete has talked about things like diodes and transistors, OpAmps, and the innards of his workspace amplifier. This week, Pete's coming at you with a bit about 555 Timers. Check it out:
Well, there you have it. Leave any questions, comments, or ideas for future "According to Pete" videos in the comments. We'll be back with your next visit with Pete in a month. Cheers!
