Keep AVR open

About a week ago, I posted on G+ my concerns regarding the impact that Microchip’s purchase of Atmel might have for the Arduino ecosystem. Turns out I’m not alone, judging from the comments in the post from the Arduino folks … Continue reading

Open source audio remote control

I’ve started a FLOSS remote control receiver project for DIY audio preamplifiers. I think it’s just about good enough to make public. Remote control is one of the more challenging things for an audio DIY person to implement, so I … Continue reading
