STM32F103 Bootloader and programming

This time I bring you a guide about STM32F103 (Bootloader and programming). This microcontroller has the advantage of having more capacity on almost everything compared with an Arduino (ATMega328p), having more SRAM, program memory, ADC and DAC resolution... for a little more money. More info into the Datasheet. STM32F103_datasheetDownload Furthermore…

ArduMenu: Create menus on Arduino or ESP8266

Today I bring you a module that I have created, which will allow you to create menus for your Arduino and compatible ones, such as ESP8266. Currently it is only compatible with two displays: Nokia 5510 (PCD8544) and those that use the ST77XX chip, with the Adafruit libraries. In the…

Improve your Arduino’s analog readings

Today I bring you a simple trick to improve the analog readings of your Arduino. One of the things you notice when you start using the Arduino and taking analog readings is the fluctuation between measurements due to the sensitivity of the analog pins. In my case, when I noticed…

Linear Regulators vs Switching Regulators

Today I'm going to talk a little bit about regulators, and the differences between linear regulators and switching regulators. Knowing the differences we can choose the regulator that best suits our project. Transistor Zones The first thing I am going to talk about is the transistor zones. Basically, because both…

Changing the Arduino Clock Speed

Hello, in this guide I will teach you how to change the clock speed of our Arduino, so we can do without components, reduce consumption, use it with less voltage, or even overclock our ATMega328p. Originally Arduino works at 16Mhz, but it is possible to change it so that it…

Reverse polarity protection circuits

Today I bring you several circuits, which will help you protect your projects against reverse polarity. This will help you avoid damage to your circuit if at any time someone connects the power supply backwards. First I'll start with the most basic diode-based ones, then move on to the relay-based…
