CH340 on OS X

Preamble

I wrote a long winded post that did not really answer the question, Can’t connect Cura to my Anet A8 on OSX 10.11.6, but rather catalogued my search for a solution to my own problem.

With respect to this post Should I clean up my answer?, I decided to delete my answer and keep the information here, in this article.

Audio Oscillator in AVR

Preamble

Having tackled the AVR Timers and Interrupts to make a Noise Chip for the BOSS DR-110 in the article Noisey chips, I now feel confident to take on and answer this question on Stack Exchange, Program an ATtiny13 as an audio oscillator with variable frequency and pulse-width. The added bonus is that it can be used to create an Atari punk Console (APC)-esque device.

Initially I will use an ATmega328…

0.91″ SSD1306

Preamble

I bought this, 0.91″128×32 IIC I2C White DIY OLED LCD Display Module 3.3V Fr PIC Arduino Hot im and connected it to an Arduino Mega, SDA/SCL/GND and connected to 5V and thought that I had broken it…

It turns out that I hadn’t, and only the very first versions of this display are 3V3 sensitive. However, finding a library to work was a bit of a task, and a small library, that doesn’t gobble up all of the Arduino’s memory, is even harder to find.

GhettoVaper – an extended GhettoVape III

Preamble

Following on from Vaping – Box Mods, I decided to extend the GhettoVape III sketch, which was posted by Julian Loiacono:

PWM.h for Arduino

Preamble

Following on from Vaping – Box Mods, I was trying to compile NewPWM, from Github: OpenSource Vape/ Smart_PWM_Test, and I was constantly getting the error:

NewPWM.ino:13:17: fatal error: PWM.h: No such file or directory

I searched google for ages, couldn’t find anything. Then, finally, I searched on Stack Exchange Arduino and found this answer from Mavidad, to Generating PWM signal 1-2 ms @ 333 Hz). NewPWM requires PWM.h from GoogleCode: arduino-pwm-frequency-library.
