AVR SPI gotcha
I've had all sorts of problems getting a SPI radio device to work for the last few days - I wasn't using the default /SS pin to select the slave as I was reusing some code from another program that already used the default /SS pin for a different device. ...

A Makefile for Arduino Sketches
When I started tinkering with Arduinos I started out with the standard Arduino IDE. It's great for getting started quickly but for more complex work, such as those involving libraries shared between Sketches, it quickly becomes limiting. What I wanted ...

Bidirectional patterns with the HL1606
Most of the videos on YouTube of the HL1606 being driven with an Arduino have patterns that start of the controller end of the strip and propagate to the far end, for example this one. I'm driving patterns in two directions, and even outwards from the ...

How the HL1606 REALLY works
I've explained in my last two Arduino posts how I got the HL1606 working with the Arduino's SPI support and hardware timers. If you haven't already read them, I suggest you read at least the first post before this one, otherwise what follows won't make ...

Driving the HL1606 using the Arduino's hardware support
In my last Arduino post I explained the basics of how the HL1606 works, if you haven't already read that I suggest you read it first. The google code library that drives the HL1606 does so by bit banging the control lines. That's both slower and more ...

How the HL1606 works
I've been asked by The Travelling Light Circus to make some radio-synchronized LED strips for them to use at the Big Chill Festival. I'm using 5V multicolour strips that I'm going to control with an Arduino. The strips are driven using the fairly ...
