Re: Hello from UK

Hi Marco Yes. I think its better here than in London, as it is possible to drive away from the light a bit, and there are some places in Australia which have very little light pollution. One holiday we stayed a night at a cattle station in outback Queensland (Somewhere near here https://www.google.c...

Re: Hello from UK

Welcome Marco I have an old Celestron Nextstar telescope (I think its a 4 inch reflector, about 10 years old), but the light pollution in metropolitan Melbourne is terrible, so I've not used it for years. I recall connecting it to the PC control program, several years ago, but I'm not sure what I've...

Re: Avast releases there RatDec decompiler to Open Source

I think it can be used as a plugin for IDA, but I'm not sure if that makes IDA free to use, as its not using HexRays (possibly not)

Re: STM acquires Atollic

The license on Segger Embedded Studio was a bit vague I went to a Nordic Semi, one say seminar, earlier this year, and at that time Nordic told the audience that they could use Segger Embedded Studio to do all but the final build, as that it was OK with Seggers license to do all the dev with it, but...

Guess I was right when I joked that the companies I was most interested in seeing "were too busy acquiring each other."
Yep. acquisitions seem to be flavour of the month.

Just like Autodesk bought Eagle (and ruined it for everyone by changing the license and requiring a login to use it)

Re: BP carrier card advice needed

I'm not sure why you are using SPI. Is it to give you more channels ? Using a board with more GPIO's would be easier. I think the questions about bus length etc, are general PCB design and you are more likely to get advice on a forum like EEVBlog which has dedicated sections. This forum is primarily...

Re: BP carrier card advice needed

It just sounds like a very big, rather than a very complex board. I see no need for 4 layers. It’s amazing what can be done with just 2 layers and the cost of 2 layers is around 5 to 10 times less than 4 layers. The only thing that sounds potentially problematic is the supply noise, e.g. loads of re...

Re: STM acquires Atollic

I thought True Studio was already free.

Perhaps it wasn’t free for commercial use.

On a similar vein, Segger now allow their Embedded Studio IDE, to be used by Nordic Semi users, completely free, even for commericial. I imagine this will start to hurt Kiel

Re: Hello from Philippines

This is the second person to think the STLink dongle has Serial.
Perhaps some vendors are falsely advertising it as having serial
