Well it’s certianly been a long since my last post, sorry! Between getting married and christmas (all on the same day lol), and the kids going back to school, my geeking (as my wife likes to call it) has been taking a back seat lately i.e. not a whole lot happening. However I have managed to squeeze in bit of learning. The first getting myself familiarilised with PIC micros, the picaxe although brilliant for small jobs, I have found to be limited, i.e. no timers etc. so I have been playing around with their big brothers. The fist learning project was a serial LCD using the 16F84, I’m using the brilliant Sourceboost BoostC Compiler ( http://www.sourceboost.com/ )
Also came across a brilliant DSP guide in an easy to understand language and not heaps if heavy maths , and its FREE for the online book http://www.dspguide.com/, this really made the light go on, ding! with the Ahh I get it in the smoke and mirrors world of DSP. I’m definately looking at purchasing a hard cover version.
