  • what is the white square component above the “Atlas Scientific”

  • How does this connect to a specific wifi access point? Is this configurable to access a secure wifi connection etc…? Once connected, can you connect via sockets? or http?
    Totally new to embedded electronics…wanting to add wifi capability to a project…

  • I added a 20Mhz crystal and it worked. When it started it was not running off the 20Mhz crystal, but rather the 1Mhz default…wierd huh?
    It now works and I am able to reprogram it now without any problems, and edit the fuse bits to use it at 20Mhz!
    Serial com works no problem.

  • I am having trouble loading code onto Atmega168. I am using Serial Programmer. Code compiles fine, but when I go to load code onto AVR, I get the following error:

    “make.exe” program
    avrdude -p atmega168 -P COM1 -c ponyser -U flash:w:blink_1MHz.hex
    avrdude: AVR device not responding
    avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
    Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
    this check.
    avrdude done. Thank you.
    make.exe: *** [program] Error 1
    Process Exit Code: 2
    Time Taken: 00:01
    Anyone have a solution to this problem??

  • Thanks Sparkfun!!
    I was one of the lucky few that got the $100…and boy was I lucky. When I got to the order success page, there was 99.4k given away…

No public wish lists :(
