Programming the Arduino Micro

  I started using the Arduino Pro mini long time ago. Due to it´s small size it´s ideal for finished projects so you can easily install it inside any enclosure or project. The power consumption is very low aswell and the onboard bundled options makes it for me the perfect candidate as a “brain” in many projects. Nowadays you can find them for 2€ or less, which is incredible but truth. The new ones ha

Arduino DIY MIDI Shield

A bit of CNC Workaround: This is one of the first successful tests I made using my CNC. A simple Arduino MIDI shield to use in my projects using just 4 wires, GND and voltage plus Serial Rx and Tx. At first most of the tedious work was to get my head around the workflow. First, you need to have a good understanding of Eagle Cad software,  how to use the components and width of the traces to get a proper CNC work. It
