New oscilloscope and new LCDs and LED updates!

Wahooooo! Exams are over, term starts next week and I’m free other than a few nights out with me chums over the next few days. In the meantime, today brought the arrival of my first ever DSO (Hantek DSO5072P) and a new LCD (the other LCD came a couple of days back but that comes […]

STM32F0 Discovery with the GY-GPS6MV2

Well! On another of my eBay whims, I decided to get a GPS receiver module. They’re normally relatively cheap (<£10 from the far lands! – Link will expire!) and are surprisingly easy to use. I’d found a fair few Arduino versions but couldn’t really find anything on how they’re interfaced. My module literally has 4 […]

Monotonous Wednesdays – Creating an extremely simple waveform viewer using the STM32F0 Discovery board and ILI9163 LCD

Well! Today, I didn’t feel like doing anything particularly productive so libraries were pretty much not an option. Instead, I decided to make a really simple oscilloscope which merely displays the current sample voltage and a trace of the samples on the screen using my ILI9163 and graphics libraries. The input voltage is specified from […]

Interfacing the HC-SR04 ultrasonic distance sensor and the STM32F0 Discovery board!

A few months back, I bought myself a cheap SR04 ultrasonic rangefinder (Datasheet:, as per off the magical eBay (Example – Link will expire: As you can imagine, these things are ridiculously cheap at a mere 99p inc. p+p. How that is even profitable, I’ll never know! They’re actually pretty nice devices and allow for […]
