AVR/HID: (avrhid#1)

Low budget USB sensor input into Pure Data/Supercollider and other free softwares based around the ATmega8 microcontroller:

Based on workshops and:

flightsim

with further research to come based on:

http://www.sensorwiki.org/index.php/Building_a_USB_sensor_interface

Schematic:

In progress.

Parts list:

In progress.

PCB:

In progress.

Code:

See above. In this case the microcontroller was programmed under GNU/Linux using avrdude:


avrdude -p m8 -c avrusb500 -e -U flash:w:~/mjoy.hex

//with fuse bits set as follows:

avrdude -p m8 -u -c avrusb500 -t

w lf 0 0xff

w hf 0 0xdf

And using the programmer featured at:

Notes:

The board is dual purpose - the parts around the 7805 voltage regulator need NOT be assembled.

There may be some issues (to be resolved) using the AVR/HID board with MAC Intel.
