Simulate Arduino, ESP32, Pi Pico, STM32, And ATtiny with Wokwi

When I listened to The Amp Hour, episode #599, I was astonished by the project and its creator, Uri. He built a simulator for all kinds of MCUs and electronic parts. This project is so cutting-edge that I cannot believe only one young guy was able to create it. And because it is useful and fun, I in

Learn everything about the DS3231-SN Real Time Clock | Use without Arduino Library

The DS3231-SN is a very useful and precise Real Time Clock (RTC). It comes in handy for all your projects in need of accurate timekeeping. Learn how to use the DS3231 on your Arduino (or any other microcontroller) without the use of extra RTC libraries! This way you can customize as you like and sa
