NoccyLabs - Electronics and microcontrollers
Here you can find some information and experiments on the TI Launchpad - MSP430 series, Atmel AVR/Arduino and Microchip PICkit2 / PIC16F series.
MSP430 LaunchPad and Value Line MCUs provide a complete development environment to enable applications including 3D glasses, gaming controls, touch sensing, smoke/fire detectors, wireless networking and more.
The LaunchPad development kit is a MSP430 MCU Value Line kit. The open source kit includes all of the hardware and software needed to easily launch designs based on TI’s MSP430 Value Line MCUs, they offer up to 10X performance and 10X battery life over 8-bit MCUs. LaunchPad supports rapid prototyping and development by allowing developers to quickly drop-in MSP430 Value Line MCUs to evaluate, program or debug devices.

Grantronics - Microcontroller Electronics
- A complete Electronics Design service.
- Some simple projects using the Atmel 89C2051
- Christmas Star project Nov-98 issue SCM.
- Heart project was published in the May-99 issue of SCM
- Christmas Tree project was published in the Nov-99 issue SCM
GMC75X Credit Card Microcontroller
Ideal for those small jobs where a standard embedded controller can't be justified. The GMC75X is like a "BASIC Stamp" except that you can program the module in 'C' using C-FLEA and a download cable. Alternatively, use 8051 assembler.
"In the early 1980's, products were designed using the Zilog Z80 micro-processor. These ranged from a simple sequence controller to one of the world's first all digital DC motor controllers. Single and 3-phase 240Vac and 415Vac fully regenerative models were developed. Some are still running today! A common application area was paper and film conversion machinery."

Proto-PIC - Prototyping for Hobbyists
A site designed for electronics and prototyping hobbyists and enthusiasts. This site has grown and is now a useful knowledge base and online shop for anyone who has an interest in Microcontroller Programming & Development or for anyone who has a love of electronics.
Kits and Tools
The Orangutan SV-328 is based on Atmel's mega328 AVR microcontroller, which runs at 20 MHz and features 32 Kbytes of flash program memory, 2 Kbytes of SRAM, and 1024 bytes of EEPROM
Eight general-purpose I/O lines with up to eight analog input channels allow for adding sensors or expanding the system.
Orangutan SV-328 Robot Controller
DSO Nano v2 is a Digital Storage Oscilloscope designed for basic electronic engineering tasks. Within its smart shell, the device runs on ARM Cortex™-M3 32 bit platform, provides basic waveform monitoring with extensive functions.
- Portable and lightweight
- Waveform storage and playback

MakingThings provides software and electronics tools for people who create projects that interact with the physical world. A broad range of people use MakingThings products including artists, designers, students, musicians, hobbyists and engineers.
Using the Make Controller, you can:
- Control motors (stepper, servo, and DC)
- Switch lights
- Monitor Temperature
- Measure Distance
- Detect People
- Sense light
- Control things from your PC
The Make Controller Kit is an open source project - open firmware, schematics, and accompanying software tools. All products can be purchased directly from our online store, and can be shipped worldwide.
The Controller Board is built around the AT91SAM7X256, and adds the essential components (like the crystal, voltage regulator, filter capacitors, etc.) required to run it, while bringing almost all the processor's signal lines out to standard 0.1" spaced sockets.

FoxTrak -This is a tiny APRS trracker measuring 4.5cm x 7cm and supports open source firmware and more...
Amateur radio projects that I built for myself and have PCBs & kits made available to other radio amateurs interested in building similar projects.
This PIC based LCD Temperature measurement project was planned to measure two Temperatures Simultaneously. It can be effectively used to measure your room temperature and may be used for measuring RF Amplifier Temp.
