So you've heard about the DIGG button and P.O.V. toys, and maybe even LCD drivers. What drives them? How do they work? Why should you care? On this episode of Systm, we tackle that very question as Patrick and Dave take a look at AVR microcontrollers. What should be simple becomes an overly complicated project that only a super NASA engineer would even think of handling if the world's fate was hanging in the balance and Bruce Willis was our only hope. So sit back and enjoy the ride as we make an LED blink on and off.
Let's go shopping:
