Hello Microphone Board

Programming Hello Microphone with the FabISP


To Flash the Microntroller:

To program your Hello Microphone - download all the files
sudo make -f hello.mic.45.make program-usbtiny 

If Working - This is the Terminal Output Produced

avr-objcopy -j .text -O ihex hello.mic.45.out hello.mic.45.c.hex;\

Hello Phototransistor

The purpose of this board is to take input from a phototransistor and display it visually using a python program when the board is connected to a computer via a FTDI cable. Link to the Fab Academy board diagrams / pngs and code.

To Flash the Board

sudo make -f hello.light.45.make program-usbtiny
