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!
