QEEWiki, AVR Guide
Hi guys welcome to my Tutorial site.  This site is basically my way of giving back to the DIY community that I have learned so much from.

Also, one NEW rule,  if anyone out there creates a time machine I want you to  take me back in time so that I could get a job working for Jim Henson's Creature Shop on Farscape.

Contact info:

I just setup a 2nd email address for this site, If you guys find any mistakes in my tutorials drop me a line at q.qeewiki@gmail.com so that I can correct them.

Please note: I am I hobbyist, I do this part time, and I work long hours, so unfortunately I am not able to help you with big projects.


Josef Prusa is my dealer =P

Some So Called "Pros"

posted Aug 20, 2011, 5:17 PM by Q

    Hi guys, it know its been a long time.  I know that I have not updated the site in ages and is due to 3 things. 

1. A change of jobs (which resulted in me having to do a lot of training). 
2. George RR Martin,  I saw A Game of Thrones on HBO which got me reading the books (I'm almost done A Clash of Kings).
3. Summer + Motorcycles.  That's right I got a great bike, which was in great shape but was in storage for a while so it needed a bit of work.

    This leads me to ask for some HELP !!!.  You see I did a write-up on a MAJOR electrical problem on my bike that could have caused me a lot of problems if I didn't catch it.  Read all about it "Viper Security System Fail".

    Once Winter comes around again I plan on doing more work on the site.  Being away for a little while is starting to give me the itch to continue work on the site.  It's just the open road that is calling me.


Special Thanks to H

H took the time to let me know that one of my comments was wrong on quite a few pages:

PORTD |= (1 << PORTD0);             // turn On the Pull-up enabled
// PDO is now an output with pull-up enabled

It should be input instead of output.

Thanks to him it has been fixed.  Good eye H and thanks for taking the time to write.

    So, if I tell you guys that I've been busy around the site you will probably think I'm pulling your leg.  Well, I have been, I've been bug-hunting, looking over the example code and fixing some errors (I have a bad habit of adding an 's' to <avr/interrupt.h> amongst other things).  If you guys find any problems with the example code please let me know.  Somethings things get messed up between revisions. 

    I've also been busy working making flow charts for the tutorials, check out the ATmega8 - Timers Tutorial which has the pleasure of having the first flowchart.

    Oh, and tanks again to Hack a Day for linking to my PLC hardware tutorial, I love you guys.


2 More Down

I just finished the 1.0 - What You Need To Get Started tutorial as well as the 1.7 - Setting Up AVR Software tutorial.



PS. I can't figure out how to make the new section limit the number of posts per page, if anyone knows how to do it please email me.  q.qeewiki@gmail.com

PLC Project Teaser

posted Apr 12, 2011, 9:11 AM by Q

OK, so I feel bad about not having an update for a while.  So I added a teaser of one of my projects to the site.  My PLC project.  I should be done the writeup in the next few days.  For now This is just the teaster.  

P.S. No this is not my current active project, that one is ... well giving me a few challenges ATM.


Wow Where Does The Time Go?

posted Apr 11, 2011, 8:08 PM by Q

Wow it has been 2 weeks since my last update.  Well the big reason for that is the weather.   It's finally gotten nice and warm so I've been doing some spring cleaning.  And been enjoying the woods.

I have spent a little time on a personal project.  Hopefully I will have enough done by the end of the month in order to post the details.


Back to Writing Tutorials

posted Mar 31, 2011, 7:24 PM by Q

I just finished my last day of the work week.  That means tomorrow I will be getting down to some tutorial writing.  My writing process so far has been to spend a day on a tutorial (it usually takes me 8 hours to write one) and then clean it up the following morning (after a bit of rest) and post it.

The next 2 tutorials that I hope to finish is the Analog Comparator tutorials so hopefully, I will have 2 tutorials done within the next 3 days.

Secondly, the little ad on the side has earned me 2 bucks, .. that's right score.  That means that I could now buy a $2 component and write a tutorial about it ... well once I make 8 more bucks to cover the shipping costs =P.

About 100 people visit the site daily, thanks for visiting and, I hope that my tutorials are helping some people out.
