Measuring current with an Arduino or any other microcontroller is not as simple as measuring voltages directly with the Arduinos/microcontrollers ADC. In most cases a designer would use a current shunt amplifier/monitor. At first I started with the MAX9634F current shunt amplifier (CSA) in my design. The company Touchstone Semiconductor […]

Arduino: measuring current: use a current shunt monitor

Today I would like to introduce you to a nice Arduino Duemilanove clone, the OLIMEXINO-328 from Olimex. It has been kindly provided by Some information about the board can be found here: OLIMEXINO-328 manual: OLIMEXINO-328 schematic: Link to product page: The board is fully compatible with […]

OLIMEXINO-328: the better Arduino?

Currently I’m working on two Arduino projects, both will upgrade my weather station. OLED I2C display The OLED is connected to an Arduino Nano via I2C and it measures the current voltage of the solar powered batteries. The OLED display is available at for 16$. Lightning Shield The other […]

Arduino: OLED I2C display and Lightning Shield

Introduction Recently I’ve found an quite interesting Arduino shield on: Using this shield you can control your Arduino using speech commands. The shield consists of these components: – EasyVR Arduino Shield (includes EasyVR module) – Microphone On the website you can also find following free software downloads (see link […]

Arduino: Speech control with the EasyVR Shield

I’ve been working quite a while on my weather station project. Since the first version of the hardware had some bugs, I redesigned the electronics from scratch and created a weather shield for the Arduino. So here it is: Overview: The shield has several sensors: – barometric pressure sensor – […]

Arduino: Weather-Shield – schematics, layout, code, … – everything you ...

Eigentlich könnte alles so einfach sein, aber wenns so einfach wäre, könnte es ja jeder, z.B. Elektronik entwickeln. 😉 So zieht sich die Fertigstellung der Hardware des Weather-Shield für die Arduino-Plattform schon wieder ein paar Monate hin. Der Schuldige ist auch ausgemacht, es ist der Barometrische Luftdrucksensor BMP085 von Bosch. […]

Arduino: neues vom Weather-Shield

On this page we present the Arduino Pan&Tilt-System. An Arduino controlls a Canon Ixus Camera and two servos of the camera pan&tilt system from Lynxmotion. We also designed a aluminium plate where all parts are mounted on. You can use this design to make ultra-mega- or even giga-pixel images or […]

Arduino Pan&Tilt-System

Die Zeit der langweiligen analogen ein-mann Entertainier ist endgültig vorbei. Jeder durchschnittliche Geek kann sich inzwichen geniale Apparate selber zusammenzimmern. Früher hat man für Konzerte dieser Art noch 5 Rastamänner gebraucht, jetzt bedarf es nur noch eines Arduinos und zweier Wii-Motes. Cool oder? Da kommt man fast in die Versuchung […]
