Getting started with breadboard power supplies
15 October 2018
Breadboard power supplies are easy-to-use, companion modules which provide regulated voltage to the power rails of solderless breadboards. They are both easy to use and extremely useful for fast, efficient breadboard prototyping of micro-electronic projects.
Calculating the cost of electricity
7 October 2018
There are some times in life where decisions are based on cost of running an electrical devices. Comparative decisions based on, for example, Wattage alone is real easy, but what about putting those values into an actual money value. This post will show you how.

When using the Arduino IDE to program Arduino or Arduino-like microcontrollers, there are 4 basic sections that each sketch should have. They are the comment section, the variables section, the setup section and the loop section.
Adding the ESP8266 board to the Arduino IDE
22 June 2018
The ESP8266 community created an add-on for the Arduino IDE that allows Arduino-like (C or C++) programming to be uploaded/flashed as software for the ESP8266 microcontroller.
Using the UART interface
5 June 2018
UART (universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter) is a communication interface used between two microcontrollers. Data signals are transferred using two lines, one for transmitting signals (Tx) and one for receiving signals (Rx).
