^nice one!you might want to consider arduino philippine version. [im]duno. Murang-mura lang... if you calculate the parts, makakamura ka pa. By parts i mean a fabricated PC board ha... you can have it here: http://www.electronicslab.ph/forum/index.php?topic=6698.0
familiar ako sa avr pero d sa arduino. balita ko open source ung software at hardware nito. which is good. para dun sa mga namamahalan, ok lang naman kahit wag na magarduino. bili nlng ng AVRISP para general purpose programming ng mga AVR's then yung support circuit magagawa nyo na based sa datasheet.if gusto nyo meron din ako, pm nlng hehe
^Talaga merong mkII sa Alexan?Yung AVRISP ko kasi serial port lang eh...ang advantage ng arduino kasi, sobrang daling i-program... sa ADC palang ang dalin na: analogRead();sa ansi C ng avr, dami pang kelangang iconfigure...yun nga lang, ang laki sa flash memory ang kinakain ng simpleng program...ang habol ko sa arduino is yung bootloader kasi sobrang convenient, unlike kapag ISP na kelangang may AVRISP lagi sa tabi...Ayoko ding masira kaagad AVRISP ko, lalo na di pa ako nagkakaroon ng AVR Dragon
Shortly after I started AVR projects on June 11, 2010, I looked into Arduino. I even made an Arduino conversion board and successfully uploaded the Arduino bootloader into my ATmega168 mCU. The pin naming conventions (Digital Pins 0-13, Analog Pins 0-5), eventually confused me.Why did it confuse me? I got used to the original pin names when I started with Atmel 89Cx051 (numbered ports) series and Microchip Technology PIC16F877A (lettered ports). As I understand, mCU ports are bi-directional and some are also used as analog inputs. To program for Arduino, you are required to use the free Arduino IDE that converts the sketches into binary code for installing into the mCU. I found that to be a limitation.AVR Studio 4 is free and I can program in C and assembly language. For Arduino, I would have to learn a Wiring-based language, which is only similar, but NOT the same as C/C++ language.
