Atmel ICE header adapter

The Atmel ICE is a fantastic tool for programming and debugging AVR and Atmel ARM chips. However, the included cable has a connector with a pin pitch of only 1.27mm. I made a header adapter to make this Atmel ICE more useful for normal spaced 2.54mm connectors.

UNIX Epoch 7-segment led clock.

I am busy testing a modular 7-segment led clock. Each module can contain up to 3 pieces of 7-segment led displays driven by a 74HC595D shift register. Modules can be combined into larger strings.

In the video the modules are driven by an Arduino Nano 3.0 using the SPI interface.
