TUMPA-Lite in in production
TUMPA-Lite is in production now. We have finished the prototype testing!
So what is TUMPA-Lite?
TUMPA-Lite is a trimmed down version of our popular TUMPA adapter. It has minimal required bells and whistles for you to get your job done.
Here are the differences between TUMPA and TUMPA Lite:
- TUMPA-Lite has one channel, TUMPA has two.
- TUMPA-Lite has no on-chip buffer, which means if buffer is critical for your application, then TUMPA-Lite is not for you, you need TUMPA.
- TUMPA-Lite only supports target voltage +3.3v, but it is +5v tolerant. If you need to support lower voltage, then use TUMPA, which supports +1.8V to +5.0V.

AVR ATMEGA32U4 and Micro SD development boards are IN STOCK!
We have stocked the ATMEGA32U4 and Micro-SD development board!
ATMEGA32U4 development board for rapid AVR Micro SD adapter development.
This AVR development is powered by an ATMEGA32U4 that is pre-programmed with the AVR's DFU bootloader which allows code to be programmed inside the chip without any external programmer, just download the FLIP software from Atmel's web site and load your HEX code via your computer's USB port.
The board is shipped without firmware, thus you can directly plug this to your computer and load your HEX code using FLIP software. If you need to re-program the chip, all you need to do is to press the RST button and release it to enter bootloader mode.
This board also has a built in Micro SD adapter, which is connected to ATMEGA32U4's SPI interface, thus you can write your own program to read the content of your micro SD.

XBOX 360 SATA HDD Connector
Do you own a XBOX 360 Arcade? If you do, you may soon realize that you cannot play many games because of the limited space on your arcade. Without a hard drive, you cannot play HALO 3 or GEARS OF WAR. Without the hard drive, you cannot save demos, game trailers, movies, stream music, view pictures... you are missing a lot fun!
Unfortunately, a 120G HDD for xbox 360 will cost your $150! No kidding! A 120G notebook HDD only cost $45! What an expensive HDD!
Why don't we make a SATA to HDD connector for your arcade? Which allows you to connect a SATA notebook sata HDD to your arcade?
We are now in the process of designing the connector... a prototype will be made soon!
We have also started a thread at [xbox-scene]

USBtiny ISP AVR Programmer
USBtiny is a software implementation of the USB low-speed protocol for the Atmel ATtiny/ATmega microcontrollers. [More info]
SP12 is a low cost AVR programmer. However it requires a parallel port. If your machine doesn't have a parallel port, then you cannot use SP12.
The USBtiny ISP AVR programmer is a very low cost AVR programmer works great with AVRDude, which is compatible with AVRStudio.
The firmware is open-source and released under GPL.
We are designing the PCB now. A prototype will be made soon!
