Watching all this discussion about debugging with an LED and such, I was wondering if anyone else writes software UARTS for debug info. I've written a 9600 baud tx-only UART for AVR's in 35 assembly instructions. The data out can be inverted so that you can connect the tx I/O pin directly to your terminal without an inverter or driver. Timing is by software timing loops so interrupts...

Does anyone have or know where I might obtain the DOS based software for Nohau EMUL51-PC? I still have the emulator with serial box, cable and various pods, and a PC with a serial port that will boot into DOS. Somewhere along the way the software distribution diskette got tossed. Never thought I'd need this emulator again, but now as a "professional courtesy" need to modify a system ...

Hello, A couple of friends and I are interested in developing a piece of real- time software, which is supposed to run on the LEGO NXT platform. We've already settled on LEJOS and their Java implementation. We know LEJOS uses fixed-priority scheduling, and judging from a course on real-time software we're taking, that will suffice. But where do we start? We've been introduced to severa...
