How’s the weather? TMP102 + Arduino

The [[TMP102]] is a very simple, yet accurate, ambient temperature sensor which is capable of detecting .0625ºC changes between -25 and +85°C, with an accuracy of 0.5°C. And the real kicker… It does all of this while only consuming 10µA (10 millionths of an [[amp]]). The thing is quite tiny, so SparkFun has put it… Continue reading How’s the weather?

Turn on a light, or 10. Arduino control over serial

This is something I use all the time, so I figured I would share it with you. Controlling an [[Arduino]] over [[serial]] can be extremely simple if you let it, and extremely useful if you know how to use it. Many languages such as [[Processing]] and [[ActionScript 3]] (with a proxy) have ways to communicate… Continue reading Turn on a light, or 10. Arduino control over serial
