sci.electronics.design compact-flash/ide adapter A compact-flash/ide adapter (SD-CF-IDE-A) from dealextreme.com worked well but only as a master, not as a slave, which is a distinct bother. Anyone know of an ide adapter that works either way, either from dealextreme or another dealer? Hul

Toying with the idea of replacing an HD with a usb stick, to reduce power usage, weight, heat, size, etcetera. There are lost of adaptors that let you plug a drive into a usb port; is there an adaptor that does the reverse? The board in question (Series 1 Tivo) has no USB port, just an IDE connector.

As someone pointed out a while back while the Arduino toolchain seems to be very popular for developing hobbyist embedded applications for AVR/ARM, but the API and IDE is kind of a mess. The API is a bastardized subset of C++ where a lot of things don't work and which most users only use to write kludgey, procedural C-like code; you have C-like global functions such as "digitalWrite" whi...

"In fact, Sharot cites research from Yale University that disproves the idea that the social divisions we are experiencing right now—over climate change, gun control, or vaccines—are somehow the result of an intelligence gap: smart people are just as illogical, and what's more, they are even more skilled at skewing data to align with their beliefs." http://bigthink.c

Load CD into tray, click Install when available. One is FORCED to save "Setup.exe" BUT when you run it (from your HD), you will get error message like cannot find .msi ! Well, naturally, it ain't there - it is on the CD, dummy (not you, the nameless idiot that "engineered" this stupidity). So,log back to the CD, browse it and find Setup.exe and run it there WHICH SHOULD HA...

So, I am trying to extend a "Blinky" (blinks an LED) example program that came with the IAR Kickstart IDE and debugger. When I initialize more than one data direction register the code runs but the signals no longer "output." Any thoughts? The code below toggles PH7 if I uncomment "//GPIO_PORTG_DIR_R = 0x03;" no more I/O output. main(void) { volatile unsigned long ulLoop; ...

Just some thoughts that may help someone. To get started I would recommend the Nano. You just need it , a usb cable, and the IDE downloaded. The Nano has a usb chip on the module. No hassles about connecting. The pro mini does not have a usb chip, but is otherwise the same. To use it you need a usb to TTL adapter. I bought an adapter with a FDTI232 chip and could not get

I've got an old WD hard drive whose original EIDE PCB got bad and I could not get an exact PCB replacement for it. A supposed expert on hard drives suggested that I might try to attach a SATA PCB to the drive and that could work because the drives themselves are pretty much the same and WD just started attaching SATA PCBs in later years to the same drives that used to have enhanced IDE P...

Can't seem to find a source, but that is probably because I'm not using good search terms... Anyone know where to find these? Thanks.
