I'm using a display board from Adafruit [1]. It was ok, until I knew the device will be used outdoor, under the sun. Of course, the visibility of that display outdoor isn't good at all. Any suggestions how to improve its visibility? Is there a *similar* display that is good outdoor? Here similar means I should make minor changes (hw and sw) to adapt the current design to the new displa...

I'm using facilities to manage timestamps of events. The platform is ARM Cortex-M3 (LPC1788) and I'm using MCUXpresso IDE (so arm-gcc toolchain). I configured the IDE to use newlib-nano library. It's quite easy to use a time_t variable for a timestamp and use gmtime()/mktime() function to transform the number of seconds from epoch to a broken-down time structure (struct tm, wit
