Atmel´s AVR microcontrollers are the chips that power Arduino, and are the go-to chip for many hobbyist and hardware hacking projects. In this book you´ll set aside the layers of abstraction provided by the Arduino environment and learn how to program AVR microcontrollers directly. In doing so, you´ll get closer to the chip and you´ll be able to squeeze more power and features out of it. Each chapter of this book is centered around projects that incorporate that particular microcontroller topic. Each project includes schematics, code, and illustrations of a working project. * Program a range of AVR chips * Extend and re-use other people?s code and circuits * Interface with USB, I2C, and SPI peripheral devices * Learn to access the full range of power and speed of the microcontroller * Build projects including Cylon Eyes, a Square-Wave Organ, an AM Radio, a Passive Light-Sensor Alarm, Temperature Logger, and more * Understand what´s happening behind the scenes even when using the Arduino IDE

Decentralized platforms like Bitcoin changed cryptocurrency forever, but Ethereum is going to change so much more. Before you can successfully mine and invest in Ethereum, you need to understand where it came from, how it works, and how it´s different than Bitcoin. The founder of Ethereum wanted to create a blockchain that could incorporate applications and not just currency. He made Ethereum, which has a more complex code and system of ´´tokens´´, which represent anything of value, not just Ether, which is the fuel that Ethereum uses. Using Ethereum is similar to other cryptocurrencies, with its system of keys and wallets. If you´ve never used Bitcoin before, this audiobook walks you through what you need to know to set up an Ethereum wallet and start collecting Ether. You have a private and public key; the private key is just for your use and lets the blockchain know who you are, while the public key is an address that people can send Ether to. The wallet stores the key and gives you access to your Ether. There are lots of types of wallets, so you´ll learn about the best options, and how to buy and send Ether. Security is a major issue with Ethereum, so you need to know what risks you´re taking and how to keep your account safe. You can lose your Ether in a variety of ways, like by simply losing your private key, or when the exchange you´re using collapses. To keep your Ether secure, you need to consider cold storage (keeping your Ether offline), choosing the right exchange, and keeping your email super secure. This is stuff you need to know. You can never be too careful when it comes to Ethereum security. One way you can collect Ether is to mine it, and this audiobook explains exactly how to do that. If you want to be on the forefront of technology and learn about how the future will be powered by the blockchain and Ethereum, get this audiobook and get ahead of the crowd. 1. Language: English.

Expand Raspberry Pi capabilities with fundamental engineering principles Exploring Raspberry Pi is the innovators guide to bringing Raspberry Pi to life. This book favors engineering principles over a ´recipe´ approach to give you the skills you need to design and build your own projects. You´ll understand the fundamental principles in a way that transfers to any type of electronics, electronic modules, or external peripherals, using a ´´learning by doing´´ approach that caters to both beginners and experts. The book begins with basic Linux and programming skills, and helps you stock your inventory with common parts and supplies. Next, you´ll learn how to make parts work together to achieve the goals of your project, no matter what type of components you use. The companion website provides a full repository that structures all of the code and scripts, along with links to video tutorials and supplementary content that takes you deeper into your project. The Raspberry Pi´s most famous feature is its adaptability. It can be used for thousands of electronic applications, and using the Linux OS expands the functionality even more. This book helps you get the most from your Raspberry Pi, but it also gives you the fundamental engineering skills you need to incorporate any electronics into any project. Develop the Linux and programming skills you need to build basic applications Build your inventory of parts so you can always ´´make it work´´ Understand interfacing, controlling, and communicating with almost any component Explore advanced applications with video, audio, real-world interactions, and more Be free to adapt and create with Exploring Raspberry Pi.
