In this project, we'll build circuits for programming two different Atmel microcontrollers and we'll discuss the necessary software setup.
Use an Arduino/Genuino 101, a TI SensorTag, and an SD shield to build a BLE multi-sensor data logger that records temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, ambient light and more.

Reduce the cost of using an Arduino UNO by 50% or more by building your own device with comparable functionality.
Get acquainted with using I2C with the Quark D2000 development board by interfacing an ambient light sensor and an LCD.
This project gives you an example of how a basic user interface can be implemented using only one circular capacitive touch sensor.
In this project we will develop an algorithm for precisely locating a touch event that occurs somewhere on a circular capacitive sensor.
In this short project article series, we will implement a simple PID controller using LabVIEW on a hobby DC servo motor and the NI myRIO.

Part One in this three-article series focuses on using the SAM4S timer/counter peripheral to precisely control the DAC’s sampling rate.
In this article, we teach C-BISCUIT how to do important life things, such as booting into our OS of choice, and connecting to the Wi-Fi it'll come to know as the gateway to knowledge.
