SPI and I2CWeek 10Background: Synchronous serial communication is needed for simpler ICs that don’t have internal clocks. There are
Week 9: SPI and I2C WIP, and Final Project Idea
Final ProjectDing and I are working together on creating an activity for understanding some basic concepts of quantum computing. See
Week 8: Serial Communication Between Arduino and Unity
Inspired by the possibilities I saw using p5.js, I thought I would try serial communication between the Arduino and
Week 7: Serial Communication
Week 7 NotesBackground Asynchronous Serial Communication TTL: transistor-transistor logic – used by UARTs (universal asynchronous receiver-transmitters), high voltage means logic 1,
