RS485 Arduino Communications

MAX485 Arduino

There are various ways for two Arduinos to communicate information. A common way is serially via RS232. However, RS232 has distance limitations. If there is a need to serially communication over a longer distance consider using RS485 instead.  A couple of MAX485 ICs can facilitate RS485 Arduino communications over that longer distance. Two MAX485 ICs …

Nuttx on the STM32F103C8T6

Nuttx Configuration Menu

Wouldn’t it be  C 🙄 🙄 L to have a Linux prompt on the STM32F103C8T6.  Not likely, however, Nuttx on the STM32F103C8T6 is about as close as you will get. Nuttx is a RTOS which runs on a wide range of microcontrollers including the STM32F103C8T6. To compile Nuttx for the STM32F103C8T6, a development environment needs …
