Arduino DC-DC Boost Converter Design Circuit with Control Loop

This post will cover how to use an Arduino Uno to easily control a 10W+ boost converter. A discrete boost converter can be built by using just a few parts, namely an inductor, capacitor, diode, and a FET. Please see the Wikipedia page for how the circuit works. It works off of the premise that an inductor will store energy in its magnetic field an....... Read More

Simple Android Bluetooth Application with Arduino Example

This article will detail how to make a simple bluetooth application using Android Studio and demo it using an Arduino to toggle an LED and send data back-and-forth. No prior knowledge of Android development is needed, however it will help to know some basics of Java programming. I will be using an Android phone for testing purposes and not an Andr.......
