Arduino on ESP8266

Arduino/ESP8266: Fetching data to Server (LOCAL and Online) using WifiClient on from the ESP8266 module using Arduino IDE. The chip first came to the attention of western makers in August 2014 with the ESP-01 module, made by a third-party manufacturer, AI-Thinker. This small module allows microcontrollers to connect to a Wi-Fi network and make simple TCP/IP connections using Hayes-style commands. However, at the time there was almost no English-language documentation on the chip and the commands it accepted.The very low price and the fact that there were very few external…

Getting Started with Smallest Arduino | Digispark AtTiny85

The Digispark is an Attiny85 based microcontroller development board similar to the Arduino line, only cheaper, smaller, and a bit less powerful. With a whole host of shields to extend its functionality and the ability to use the familiar Arduino IDE the Digispark is a great way to jump into electronics, or perfect for when an Arduino is too big or too much. Specs: Support for the Arduino IDE 1.0+ (OSX/Win/Linux) Power via USB or External Source – 5v or 7-35v (12v or less recommended, automatic selection) On-board 500ma 5V…
