30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius (aug 2010)

  • My book on the IOIO is out now (Making Android Accessories with IOIO'.

    I believe it will soon be (may already be) for sale here on Sparkfun, but it is also available at Amazon etc. Search for “IOIO Simon Monk”.

  • My first impressions of this interesting alternative to Arduino for Android hardware hacking: http://srmonk.blogspot.com/2011/10/ioio-first-impressions.html

  • On the point of supply voltage. DO NOT CONNECT Vcc to 5V. Several people have reported destruction of the device if you do this.
    This is not recommended, but I have used mine fine by leaving IO pin levels at Ardunio 5V, without any level conversion, but powering the breakout board at 3.3V from the Arduino’s 3.3V connection.
    It didn’t break mine, but that doesn’t mean it won’t break yours. So don’t blame me if it kills it!

  • I have wrapped up the code that comes with this FM receiver from Sparkfun into a library.
    I also took the opportunity to tidy things up a bit and fix the RDS.
    Help yourselves….
