Encoders software debugging
This time, it's simply about these small and cheap rotary encoder knobs which one uses often as input controls, replacing analog potentiometers or whatever. Basically, these are quadrature encoders like others, but when using these as user control inputs, for example for a midi device, you don't need a huge numeric range to count millions of turns at 0.1° angle resolution.

The problem with these mechanical switches is that these bounce. That means that instead of simply closing a contact

Teensy 3.1 with ESP8266 Web Server
I like to experiment with various RF devices. I have tried the Arduino Yun, CC3000 breakout board and the ESP8266 model ESP-01. I have a general task that I like to use to find out difficult a device is to use. The task is a web server that allows a browser(hopefully any) to turn on or off a LED connected to the device. The current flowing through the LED is measured and reported. The ESP-01 is the version of the ESP8266 that uses"AT" commands to setup and use a WIFI network connection.

A Guide To Using ESP8266 With TEENSY 3
Work in Progress
The ESP8266 is a very low cost Wi-Fi connectivity solution.
It consists of a 802.11 b/g radio and 32 bit microcontroller.
While one can program the ESP8266 MCU directly, I'm not ready to learn yet another programming environment.
For me the Teensy 3 is ideal for a host controller and since it is a 3.3 volt device, it is directly compatible.
I am hoping to pull the information together in one place to save others the frustration I had getting started.

ATtiny i2c Slave – The Wandering Engineer
I'm working on a project where I need several sensors that communicate back to a central processor.  Since I'll have several of these sensors I need them to be cheap and the ATtiny85 jumped to mind.  The only problem is that I've never used i2c with the ATtiny series before.  I read dozens of "tutorials"…
