  • red_on_black – Controlling an alphanumeric LCD display.

Generating audio

  • Use a DAC chip, such as the National DAC0802 8-bit D-to-A converter. Some quick observations: Funky power requirements. Lots of external passive components.
  • Wow, the Analog AD8300 looks bitchin.
  • It just gets better: Analog AD5665. Serial input. Four 16-bit DACs.


As many digital outputs as your heart desires

  • We've all been using and enjoying the Max395 chips. I've got a library of code on svn. [1]
  • Current record: Owen with 80 individually addressable switches. Radiosphere using a slightly older version of the Max395 code.

Lots of external storage
