    Reducing the size of a USB Stick Drive

  • Connecting the Catalex MicroSD Card Adaptor to an Arduino UNO

    Connecting the Catalex MicroSD Card Adaptor to an Arduino UNO

    I bought the Catalex MicroSD Card Adaptor from Banggood. It was cheap and the price usually includes postage. I tried to connect it using the standard SD library. I just could not get it to work. This is how I finally got it working.

  • Connecting an OLED 1306 Screen to Arduino

    Connecting an OLED SSD1306 Screen to Arduino

    I received an OLED Screen in the mail that works with an Arduiono. When I wanted to connect it to the Arduino, I found it had different pin markings to the normal one usually sold. It turns out they are similar. After some trial and error i got the standard demo Hello World to work. This is how it is done!
