Stable Orientation – Digital IMU 6DOF + Arduino

A while back we wrote an article on sensing orientation with the adxl335 accelerometer. In that article I mentioned all the drawbacks of trying to do this with just an accelerometer, and said that if you needed something stable, what you really needed was an IMU. Well… We are back with an article covering just… Continue reading Stable Orientation – Digital IMU 6DOF + Arduino

High-Power Control: Arduino + N-Channel MOSFET

Eventually you are going to find yourself holding a 12v [[solenoid]], [[motor]], or light and wondering “How the heck am I supposed to control this from my Arduino?” And we have covered this in the past. Today we are going to talk about another way of doing just that, this time with an N-Channel MOSFET… Continue reading High-Power Control: Arduino + N-Channel MOSFET
