Quick Update for September and October

This is quick update for September and October.

The presentation at Maker Faire in New York (http://makerfaire.com/new-york-2014/) on Sept. 21st went very well – 80% full of the small auditorium. The Faire itself was terrific.

On October 15, as part of the European CodeWeek (http://codeweek.eu/) the Tinusaur Project was presented to the students and teachers at one of the schools in Gorna Oryahovitsa, Bulgaria – PGEE “M. V. Lomonosov”.

On October 25, at HOW.CAMP (http://how.camp/) 4 of the prizes were Tinusaur Starters kits.

What’s coming up …

— Video tutorial: “How to assemble the Tinusaur Board”. We need some more time to process the video-materials we shot.

 

Oscilloscope-like Circuit – Preview

This is a oscilloscope-like circuit for the Tinusaur, it is not a real oscilloscope but could be used as a base for one.

It is built on top of the Tinusaur board (Atmel AVR ATiny85) and Nokia 3310/5110 LCD (PCD8544 controller).

There is also simple preamplifier for the electret microphone connected to the ADC of the MCU.

The audio signal source is combination of my DSO Quad (it has built-in signal generator) and a speaker.
