Curiosity about the cheapest Atmel MCU led to the ATtiny10. Despite what at first may seem like severe limitations, it’s pretty capable.
Category: Cool Chips
Not to be confused with the IEEE symposium, this is the place for all the cool components and ICs I come across as I tinker around and take stuff apart. Usually it involves chips that do some cool function that would have seriously fascinated my younger self.
An excellent opamp for prototyping.
Atmel’s relatively new lineup of chips is quite promising.
A pretty cool sensor salvaged from a really old mouse.
A nifty little chip whose versatile features gave it a very warm welcome into my parts bin.
