Bare-metal programming the tinyAVR 0 microcontrollers

All you need is a text editor, a makefile and a USB-serial cable. Introduction Are you an 8-bit or a 32-bit programmer? At OMZLO, we have been mainly focussing our development efforts on newer 32-bit Arm-Cortex chips (STM32 and SAMD), which typically offer more RAM, more speed, more peripherals, at a similar or lower price-point…

Industrial literacy

Industrial literacy

I’ve said before that understanding where our modern standard of living comes from, at a basic level, is a responsibility of every citizen in an industrial civilization. Let’s call it “industrial literacy.” Industrial literacy is understanding… That the food you eat is grown using synthetic fertilizers, and that this is needed for agricultural productivity, because…

Code scanning is now available!

Code scanning is now available!

GitHub code scanning is a developer-first, GitHub-native approach to easily find security vulnerabilities before they reach production. We’re thrilled to announce the general availability of code scanning. You can enable it on your public repository today! One year ago, GitHub welcomed Semmle. We’ve since worked to bring the revolutionary code analysis capabilities of its CodeQL…

NIST Pair of Aluminum Atomic Clocks Reveal Einstein’s Relativity at a Personal Scale

NIST Pair of Aluminum Atomic Clocks Reveal Einstein’s Relativity at a Personal Scale

Credit: Loel Barr for NIST Clocks tick a little faster if you’re a foot higher, NIST experiments have shown, confirming predictions from Einstein’s general theory of relativity. BOULDER, Colo. – Scientists have known for decades that time passes faster at higher elevations—a curious aspect of Einstein’s theories of relativity that previously has been measured by…
