Here's this week's reads.

Brought to you this time by Scannable! What could you do with a high quality scanning LiDAR sensor?    

That's it, Enjoy!

A fundamental application of electronics is transformation - from power supplies that transform AC to DC to microprocessors that transform binary code to text, graphics, and sound. While transformations at many levels may be critical to the function of a device or application, it's the high-level sensory transformations that hold the greatest potential to change the world.

This color organ has both hardware and software (firmware) components. What's different about this design is that all of the frequency selectivity is provided by digital filters in the digital domain and the output devices are now low voltage super bright LEDs instead of incandescent bulbs.

The novice-friendly serial library was built on top of two other not so novice-friendly libraries: one for storing the data ( ring buffer) and another for sending and receiving the data (USART). This episode will look at ring buffers and at another software engineering tool - the AVRStudio Simulator - that we'll use to test the ring buffer functions. Then next time, we'll look at the AVR USART.
