Take a look at Cyclic Redundancy Checks beyond just copy/pasting an implementation. The underlying mathematical principles are very interesting, and you can try it yourself in Python!
The market is maturing, and we are looking at a lot more ARM chips.
Creating a custom project to show off some nice edge-lit acrylic.
The SAMD21 boards have the ability to add additional UART, SPI and I2C ports. Check out our new tutorial explaining how to set them up.
Taking what I've learned about LED color mixing and Python, along with our LumiDrive LED Driver and LuMini LED Ring, I set out to create a light ring for macro photography that surpasses all others.
How to eschew the Arduino IDE for a combination of and Arduino command-line tool (Arduino CLI) and a professional code editor (Visual Studio Code).
Have you been curious about trying Python on a microcontroller? The ESP32 is a great way to start!
Our newest (sorta-Python-related) tutorial shows you a few ways to run a script whenever a Raspberry Pi boots up.
In the latest Python tutorial series, we look at loading MicroPython onto six different microcontroller development boards.
We've updated our popular "Raspberry Pi SPI and I2C Tutorial" with some Python examples.
If you're looking to make your own dashboard or slick graphical interface, Python can help you out with the Tkinter package.
Whether you are teaching a class or want to create a dashboard to plot sensor data, the matplotlib Python package has you covered! We introduce a new guide that walks you through the basics of using matplotlib.
A new tutorial to help beginners control hardware with Python.
Remixing Anouk Wipprecht's Kitty Ear soldering project shared on OSHPARK and Shapeways.
Yay! More interrupts. Let's see how to set up timer interrupts in an Arduino.
Let's continue digging deeper into Arduino to see what's really going on with registers.
In order to use more advanced features or optimize our code for space and speed, we need to understand how to work with registers directly in microcontrollers.
The serial controlled motor driver is stripped of its firmware and reprogrammed to function as an amplifier. Then it's surrounded with circuits that turn the whole shebang into a portable guitar amp.. but it won't win any awards.
Let's take the SparkFun Inventor's Kit to the next level with some more projects!
