AVR is the brain that runs Arduino, but you don't need the whole Arduino board to do fun projects. Experimenting with AVR Microcontrollers, from Practical AVR Microcontrollers, shows you how to create a spiffy set of projects that you can build to learn more about electronics, about AVR, and just to generate new ideas for your own projects.
Alan Trevennor will show you how to create a secret panel project, a gadget to drive your pets crazy, a hallway lighting system, and even a small home automation network.
What you’ll learn
How to create an illuminated secret panel
How to create visual effects with AVR
How to create a waterfall-like lighting system
How to set up a small home automation network
Who this book is for
Electronics hobbyists, Arduino fans, and any maker who wants to try some fun ideas with AVR.
