How to Solder a Wire to Surface-Mount IC With Pins VERY Close Together?

June 26, 2018, 4:51 pm

We do embedded software, but the hardware is produced by our customer (we d on't control it). Sometimes we need to attach a wire (for monitoring a serial or I2C interfac e, or for timing instrumen... Read more »

what's the startup clock frequency of PIC1703

June 24, 2018, 9:12 am

I'd like to run from internal osc (XTAL pins as GPIO), but from the configuration bits it looks like it defaults to ext clk. I can't seem to find docs on their two speed startup and Fail-safe cloc... Read more »

[AVR] What assembler to use?

June 16, 2018, 7:37 am

I've just been trying to use avra, but it outputs coff or something, so obdump has trouble disassembling it. I am also not sure how to link the result(ihex have no symbol info). So now I believe... Read more »
