I studied electronics technology throughout high school earning state vocational certifications in many fields of study related to electricity, electronics and various mechanical trades such as welding, print press operation/maintenance, carpentry, drafting and the like. In college I studied electrical engineering specializing in digital electronics and wireless communications technology. While in college I worked at a Hitachi service center repairing and servicing a vast array of electronic, electrical and electromechanical devices. We commonly serviced residential computers, televisions but also industrial and commercial equipment such as factory control systems, factory automation and the like. (My favorite was the 1960s-era German-made vulcanizers used at tire factories!) After college I began studying software application design and web technologies on my own time. I learned numerous programming languages and eventually developed applications ranging from simple websites to custom compiler modifications (GCC) all the way up to massive scale applications such as factory automation software for large multi-national corporations.

  • umm, this emailed as available and there is not even a price or option to add to cart. huh?

  • You can set the I2C address in the utility. You need to connect it via USB using something like an FTDI cable as if you were flashing the firmware. Then you run the reader/writer/config utility and under I2C address you can change it. The default setting is like 99 and most Arduino projects want it to be 42 or 46 or whatever (don’t recall).
