I2C Single Master: peripheral or bit banging?

  [ 2 ]
November 20, 2020, 8:43 am

I hate I2C for several reasons. It's only two-wires bus, but for this reason it is insidious. I usually use hw peripherals when they are available, because it's much more efficient and smart and... Read more »

I working with an LCD display using this chip which is apparently function compatible with the ubiquitous HD44780 LCD controller. The initialization sequence is a set of commands because no one ... Read more »

Adding the new "USB CUSTOM CLASS" template to CubeMX for STM32?

October 5, 2020, 9:52 am

When preparing nonstandard USB firmwares for STM32 microcontrollers, it would be perfect to have a possibility to use a CUSTOM CLASS, in Class for FS IP list in CubeMX. Unfortunately it is not avail... Read more »

Testing watchdog

September 27, 2020, 3:56 pm

I usually enable watchdog during boot init code. I usually use the internal watchdog that is available in the MCU I'm using. I know an external watchdog can be more secure, but internal watchdog ... Read more »
