It like MatchBox cars in electronics

Hi Max: Have you come across this Kickstarter project  "Microduino" yet, It looks like being the best thing I have come across for embedded Atmel/Arduino projects, I think I am going to go at least a $50-100 pledge.

It's going to be like when I was a kid(long time ago), when a new diecast Match Box toy came out, I just had to have it and nagged the parents until they gave in.

Looks like I will have to do a lot more housework to get the good lady in my life to open up the purse strings.

@seaEE: Maybe an Arduino version of the Pnuematic Transport for Toot Fairy?

OMG That is absolutally BRILLIANT!!!

@IanHarris: We have some tutorials for using the Arudino with LED alphanumeric displays and LED matrix displays that you might find useful.

WONDERFUL -- thanks for sharing -- I will take a look as soon as I get a free moment -- Max

@antedelivian: As I recall Arduino does not work in C, but has its own language and IDE.

Well, it's C-esq :-)

The reason I prefer the Ardiuno is that you can do more sophirsticated stuff easier in C/C++ --

As I recall Arduino does not work in C, but has its own language and IDE.

Nobody says you have to use the Arduino environment- you could use the Atmel development environment and then work with C. And others make products that are Arduino Shield compatible, the the Pioneer (Cypress PSoC4).

@zeeglen: Project Idea:  Use the 4 x 4 x 4 LED cube for a 3D Tic-Tac-Toe game - human against the Arduino


Ooh -- that's a good idea!!!

@Antedeluvian: I hope you don't live anywhere near Dear Trail, Colorado...

Now I need to equip my drones with lasers :-)

@David: "What have I done!!??" I thought...

Don;t worry -- the PICAXE is a great thing, and it's BASIC is easy-peasy to pick up -- you will have a lot of fun. The reason I prefer the Ardiuno is that you can do more sophirsticated stuff easier in C/C++ -- also the fact that you can get 8-bit and 32-bit Arduinos -- also the concept of the Wings that plug into the main Arduino board -- and th ebig thing is that the Arduino stuff ties into that robotic vision and nanocopter stuff


But for just messing around with your own projects, I think you will love the PICAXE

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
