Model Rocket Logger/Locator (01/16/2015 12:02 PM)
A small data logger/locator for model rocketry.
This is absolutely not something you’d want to use for serious rocketry. I was just playing around with RTF rockets with my kids and thought it’d be kind of cool to be able to show them how fast/high it went as well as have some fun trying to find a beeping/flashing locator. I use an nRF51822 as the microcontroller so I could also play with locating a BLE beacon. Real rocket locators uses more powerful and lower frequency transmitters for better range....
BLE CAN Gateway (10/19/2014 02:10 PM)
Three CAN transcievers and a microph^WBLE module.
Actually it’s more like 6 CAN transcievers and 2 LIN transcievers. The goal is to “break into” the three CAN and two LIN buses on my 2015 Passat TDI and be able to “filter” them, providing total control over the communications links in the car....
ESP8266 Breakout (10/18/2014 04:22 PM)
A breakout board for the ESP8266 which has the same form factor as the SparkFun WRL-12072 CC3300 breakout board.
Both serial and SPI connectivity is supported through the use of an SC16IS750 SPI-to-UART.
iPhone 4 HSMC Interface (03/01/2014 06:26 PM)
iPhone 4/4S displays are high resolution LCDs that are inexpensive and plentiful on eBay. This project describes a breakout board and related logic to talk to them using Altera FPGAs.
Hackaday user “twl” has gone and done it before me. His OSS/OSHW project MIPI DSI Display Shield/HDMI adapter does everything I was intending to do and more. I encourage anyone interested in this to visit his project site....
iPod Nano 6 Display Breakout (03/01/2014 02:18 PM)
A project which summarizes and continues on from the excellent Mike’s Electric Stuff blog, where he details the reverse engineering and development of a MIPI DSI video generator for the iPod Nano v6 LCD.
