AVR Stick – A Simple USB Data Logging Device

The default firmware runs simply enough: plug it in to a USB port on your computer, after the computer recognizes the device as a keyboard it will automatically start reporting the voltages. To get a series of measurements, open up a text or spreadsheet editor and plug the AVR stick in. The AVR Stick will automatically start inputting the voltage values to whatever program is active on the computer. The ADC is configured to use a 2.56V reference voltage, so don't try measuring anything higher than that without modifying the code!

This thing is meant to be hacked! Visit the Objective Development website to learn how others have used the USB stack to implement miscellaneous HID projects like keyboards, mice, joysticks, etc., etc., etc...
